This paper is a case study that outlines design and implementation issues related to an application that facilitates process management and controls business performance issues in a retailer of extended products. The notion of an extended product is that of a product bundled with services. Towards this aim, the case study described in this paper focuses on three objectives: to review on existing theory on the subject of designing and developing applications and interfaces for enterprise information systems, to solicit end-users’ requirements based on which an information system is designed and developed.
