CHAPTER ONE

1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Management Information System (MIS) is a planned computer based system designed to provide management with a continual flow of information relevant to it’s specific decision areas.  It is a continuing interacting structure of people, equipments and procedures to gather, sort, analysis, evaluate and distribute pertinent, timely and accurate information for use by management decision makers to improve their management planning implementation and control. It is based on this planned computer based system that managers in the banking industry tend to improve the services they rendered to their customers. The world as a whole has become one global village as a result of information technology and in a bid to adapt to the constant changes with the improvement in science and technology, the banking industry have seen the need to also change their mode of operation in order to keep abreast with the current practice and to effectively face the constant challenges experienced in business. These  changes and challenges goes along with the dynamic nature of the business environment, which is the key determinant factor of the success and failure of any business. 

 

In the light of this dynamic nature of business, customers have a lot of expectation from banks in the way they render their services.  This growing expectation prompt the banking industry into the use of management information system to smoothen their performance and the improvement of services rendered to customers. Today, there are lots of challenges in the banking industry characterized by constant changes in customers needs as well as competition. Different banks strive towards achieving or being the major controller of customer’s patronage in the entire industry. Thus, in a bid to compete favourably and effectively, some banks has to adopt new methods of operation currently practical all over the world. Within the wider world, mankind has found himself entrapped in what is regarded as computer age which is the use of computer in diverse area of human endeavour.  Due to computer network, on-line information, electronic banking and fund transfer services, it is easy for one to transact bank business including cashing of money.

 

In some banks, people some times spend nearly the full working day in order to collect their money.  However, if such bank computerized their services, it will taken them much less time to serve their customers, thereby reducing the man-hour wasted by personnel which will enhanced productivity. In Management Information System (MIS), the use of computer in performing administrative function enhances the creation of files in the computer memory such as account, accounts reporters covering receipt of payments income, expenditure, balance sheet and security reports files.  There is no doubt the banking industry would have a perfect control of their business without paying too higher premium in terms of time with the computerized analysis and presentation of the information in these files. Planning in any organization is the availability of adequate and accurate information.  Therefore, organizing a raw diverse data in such a way as to present itself in an easy to digest manner for quick and easy decision taken would involve the processing of these raw data in an efficient means. Today, the most efficient means of performing this exercise is through the use of computer based management information system, which contains the operational data based management system that ensures that records are kept up to date and made available on demand to those who need them for planning and operational purpose. Therefore, for any corporate organization or industry like the banking industry to be effective and successful in their operation, there must be availability of adequate and reliable information about their customers, what they need and how to satisfy this needs. 

 

Absence of effective management has led to the collapsing of some banks in the country. Despite the awareness and availability of Management Information System (MIS), these are still some lapses as regard the quality of services some banks rendered to their customers such as time wasting, delay in sorting out of customers data, inability to access customers account as a result of computer breakdown etc. Based on the above information, the researcher is motivated to examined the extent to which Management Information System (MIS) can be use to improve customer services in the banking industry with emphasis on Inter-Continental Trust Bank Plc Enugu.

The above factors have created a negative patronage from public savings and other transactions through the bank.  This has resulted to loss of revenue for some banks as well as customers in terms of services rendered to them.
