Abstract:

"The changeover to the euro, Europe's new unified currency, necessitates fundamental modifications of information systems worldwide. Managing the Euro in Information Systems is a roadmap for implementing the many changes required for this transition. This book covers the mechanics of conversion calculations, but also examines the scope of such an enormous project, the many different business functions involved in the conversion, and the options and strategies that should be employed to insure a smooth changeover."--Jacket.

"This book provides in-depth information about the complex conversions that will be incorporated into information systems, including coverage of key topics such as triangulation, avoiding rounding errors, the effect on price points, and converting historical data."--BOOK JACKET. "Moving beyond the math, this book helps you gain a perspective on the euro's overall impact on your organization and how information systems must respond. Patrick O'Beirne explains the euro's effect on business activities such as sales and marketing, procurement, supply-chain coordination, and human resources. The author also examines how the euro will affect business accounting, providing detailed coverage of profit margins, pricing, invoicing, taxes, and related topics."--Jacket.

"Finally, Managing the Euro in Information Systems presents strategies for successful implementation. It will guide your efforts to assess your organization's situation, determine which systems will be affected, devise appropriate strategies for the changeover, and plan the specific steps and timing of the changeover process."--Jacket.
