Abstract: Microcomputers can improve managerial productivity by tailoring data more specifically to management's needs and providing information for decision-making more quickly. The role of database management programs in building a communication network for Arizona State University's Technology Transfer Program illustrates the utility of this type of software. Spreadsheets simplify budgeting where revenues come from different funding sources and require separate accountability. Word processing programs help writers find the most effective expression of their ideas and facilitate collaboration among authors.
