The systems that operate locally, nationally and internationally; can be simple or complex.
- Sometimes (in a small organisation), the same individual, or office, will promote, sell, deliver and provide after sales service for a product.
- Sometimes each of these functions may be carried out by different people or organisations; an a system needs to be built that links these different entities together.
Effective linkages make for better sales and productivity.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those
with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional
benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for
greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the
education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data
biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a
qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s,
education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders
taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do.
While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades,
those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in
the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
