XYZFoodCorp believes that this new ordering process will reduce their time to deliver while increasing their market share. Additionally, the new ordering system should reduce existing expenses associated with the current order processing system. Management believes that all existing customers will prefer to use the new ordering system, and therefore require 99.9% system and network up time. XYZFoodCorp would like to further utilize the new network to reduce toll charges between the headquarters and each warehouse. Management plans to have the new systems in place within six months. Once orders are placed, they will be routed to the correct warehouse for order fulfillment. Each warehouse is currently connected to the headquarters via dial up connections. The new ordering system will require a minimum of 256kpbs between each warehouse and Tokyo. Management has budgeted $250,000 USD for new network equipment and $100,000 per year for circuit costs. XYZFoodCorp’s IT department consists of two technical support technicians who currently have no expertise with networking. The new CTO plans to outsource the design and implementation of the network and hire one new technician to perform network management. XYZFoodCorp’s Management is very concerned with the security of the new application and the new threats posed by connecting the headquarters to the Internet. What major goals does XYZFoodCorp hope to achieve from this project? (Choose two.)

a. Increase market share
b. Roll out a new ordering system
c. Outsource the network managements
d. Provide VoIP services between locations
e. Reduce ordering system associated costs
