The office is a room or place where manage an organization or department works. Each and every organization or department uses a computer in their office to manage the work, e.g. typing documents, preparing presentations, managing accounts matter, drawing maps, sending emails, and browsing. We take print of all mandatory letters and documents of the concerned organization or department for keeping the official record. Earlier, this work was done by a type machine, but now this job is done by the computer with a printer instead of a typewriter. A computer makes easy our work in the office instead of a typing machine. It saves our time because we can edit the files instead of retyping which has already been saved on our computer hard drive.
Now it is the time of information technology. Anyone, who wants to do a job in the office. He may be familiar with a computer and its software. It allows us to quickly respond to the services. Therefore, we may use an internet connection which plays a crucial role in this regard. Any office can move and share their essential documents through email immediately without loss of time. Any organization/company can launch its own website to release updates related to its department, organization, or business.
It is very important to keep information about employees on a computer in the organization. Database software is used to make a complete database of the company. We can prepare any type of report of the organization or company by analyzing this data.
Importance/Uses of Computers in Banks:
Banks deal with customers for paying or depositing money. The computer plays a vital role in the bank because each bank is working under a database network. In banks, this database is stored on a computer server. It is possible with the computer to avoid account duplication and control the client’s record, e.g. depositing and withdrawing amounts.
ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) is used in banks to withdraw amounts at any time. This all could be controlled by the computer. This machine helped the clients and avoided them from long queues.
Internet banking provides an online facility for clients to get full information about its account. A client can transfer the amount to another account and pay their bills online. Customers can also check all transactions of the account.
Bank cheques have special characters and numbers of magnetized ink read by MICR and data send to the computer. MICR checks the validity and accuracy of the cheques.
CCT’s cameras are installed in the bank, which capture and stores potage of the bank’s circumstances. These cameras are controlled by the computer which helps security agencies to identify criminal persons.
Importance/Uses of Computers in Industry:
