Computerization Programme Print

Since its modest beginning in 1993, GB computerization programme has come a long way. At the end of 2009, 2,558 (out of 2562) branches have been computerized. To increase the operational efficiency of any financial institution, it is important to minimise paper work at all levels particularly at branch level. Given the limitations of power supply, it is still not possible to derive maximum benefit from the computerization of Grameen management information system, especially in the rural areas.

During the year 2009, we set up another 4 Information Management Centres at the area level. All of our area offices had setup Information Management Centres in this year. At the Information Management Centres, three branches are served by one computer. All branches within an area receive services from the centre. Each centre provides all types of loan monitoring and accounting services on a regular basis. Therefore, it has been possible to both reduce costs and increase the efficiency of the computerization programme.

When the Information Management Centres attain their full capacity to serve 3 branches with one computer.
