INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

        Bank as a financial institution is primarily concerned with the mobilization of savings and the profitable application of funds.

        According to Ogbu Andrew C. one of the bank official, in an interview help with him at U.B.A Bank on march 15 2009 He sad that the major object of U.B.A bank is the number of customers and the credibility of U.B.A. bank, is based on its ability to attract a sizeable proportion of the customer found. (Ogbu Andrew C.).

        Referring to Uchenna E.O. (1997 p. 1) on research and project methodology, he said that the information technology on marketing of banking services arose to challenge all other previous concepts in the banks, that information technology is the key to achieve organizational goals which consists of determine the needs and wants of target markets and the delivery of the desired satisfaction more effectively an d efficiently than competitors.

        Quoting from Nwankwo Eze A. (1998) an article written on 25 September, which says many banks in the past strive to improve their counter services by employing more staff to cope with increasing number customers. This did not yield such result. With the advance of information technology banks have been able to automat some aspect, if not all their operations and thus has resulted in lower cost in terms of paid salaries to staff waiting time of customers. With the help of information technology accounting information system, the decision making processing, loans and credit evaluations and other banking services have been very efficient.          

        The banking having realizes that existence in the competitive economy depends on the level of information technology adopted protectively. That the range of information technology adopted by the UBA bank must be determined by peculiarities of its customers.

        He further said that although development has not only be driven by technology advanced but have also in turn, spawned technological development.

        According to Jaret Charles T. (1998 p.9) advantages that information technology provides are:

Quick decision because information can be supplied faster.

Better decision because the information is complete sufficient and up to date.

Better management – because the information system can closely ill the goals of the organization the department and the individual customers inclusive.

For those key players in the industry who have embraced information technology, the impact of this investment to the operation in terms of marketing of banking services is what this study is out to explore.

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Banking is in the services industry. The quality of services rendered by the UBA Banks, have been attracting criticisms from people of all works of life.

However, the waiting time for such services had led to frustration and dissatisfaction of quit a number of customers.

   He also said that most banks do not put their customers in the prime place as they supposed to be. There is now keen competition and to compete means to apply the marketing of information technology. Are these criticisms justified or are they just a mere rundown of the banking industry, because they are making profit in an area of economic slump?

        This study is aimed at researching on effect of automat of the bank on the marketing of banking services.

        It is vital to put the potential progress into prospective and recognized the current extensive use of automated system in banking services delivery. That the development of on-lime back- office terminal system liked to large main frame batch-processing computers has enable the bank to cope with rapidly increasing volumes of transactions that could not have been handled manually.

        He further said that, the use of information technology is an entrepreneurial activity that information as a corporate resource should be managed and it greatly increase the opportunities that are available.
