With reference from various distinct authors, we indeed realize that sound is an essential commodity and matter in the existence of humans. Through sound communication can indeed take place and without it indeed no information could actually take place. According to Jahangir (2005), a sound information system is very important for a business’s decision making process.

All activities of certain departments are coordinated so there are no wastes in terms of resources. Issues and problems are easily monitored and corrected when everything is under n automated control. Information overload is avoided at all times hence prevention of problems.
