  Duty / Role                                           Use of ICT

Head Keeper         At Marwell, the animal keepers are the front line in gaining information on our
                    animals – they deal with them every day, 365 days a year! The keepers have to
                    fill in a Word report sheet at the end of each day, detailing anything that has
                    happened with the animals that day.

Visitor Services    At the entrance gate we use an EPOS (Electronic Point Of Sale) system. The
Manager             tilling system has different buttons for each pricing structure. The tills produce a
                    receipt for the customer (a legal requirement) and the information of the sale is
                    logged in the system’s internal memory. All of the tills are linked to a central
                    processing unit with operating system. At end of the day the daily sales figures
                    from each till are collated by a central processing unit operating system and
                    sent electronically, via a modem, to the main finance processing unit where the
                    data is inputted into the appropriate database system software.

Press & Public      Communication is vital for P.R. so email and the internet are vital ICT
Relations           resources.

Coordinator of      One Database stores information for membership, adoptions and volunteers.
Volunteers          The Coordinator of Volunteers may need to store information on each
                    volunteer’s skills and the activities they carry out within the park.

Education           Data storage of school addresses, telephone numbers, contact teacher’s name
Officer             along with information on previous visits and the session they had last time.
                    Interpretation and graphics around the park are produced using design
