I.T has many uses in finance. Companies nowadays use I.T in many different ways from financial trading to reporting the earnings of a business. Information technology allows companies in this industry to quickly calculate “financial statistics”, as well as for the use in electronic transfers of money.  A good IT system in funds is of major benefit to companies too and allows them to compete for new business.

Customers can easily transfer and complete online transaction instead of people using checks which are quickly becoming outdated. A debit or credit card purchase can be very quickly compared with the customer’s account balance, this either then allows the transaction or not. But a lot of big Finance companies that are in funds area develop their Information systems for use in producing NAVs as quick and accurate as they can, good I.T. systems within a company of this nature provides the company the most up to date information on market prices on stocks and also the system itself must be user friendly and accurate.





A person looking after their own finance can receive great value from  information technology in finance and with the development of IT this has made personal finance so much easier and quicker . Banks provide data on current and savings accounts on line as well as withdrawals. A customer can download all there account transactions and if the need arises can store them in records on a home computer, companies can also nowadays do the same and nearly always have their own accounting system built into the Information system network to make things even easier for them and it also make things more accurate.
