MCB Bank has had a reputation of maintaining a technological edge when it comes to online banking, email hosting, and other communication networks. In order to help it stay on top, MCB has collaborated with Microsoft (News - Alert). Among the services available, it will be adopting Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Office and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager in order to give it a better advantage over competitors.
This action falls in line with MCB Bank’s strategy of establishing the largest online branch in the country. The idea of e-banking has slowly swept through the financial sector. With its convenience and ease of use, the online option is very amiable to consumers giving all the more reason for banks to adopt the technology. Through things like improved email hosting, which allows MCB employees to connect securely and collaborate from virtually any device, the organization can offer users everything their business needs to succeed.
“This will enable the technology function to deliver the best quality of services to its internal and external customers while changing the experience and productivity through a facilitation model,” stated Imtiaz Mahmood, head of Information Technology Group, MCB Bank Ltd, in a statement.
Aasim Ashraf, division head of ITSM (Project Director), MCB Bank Ltd sees this as a good step forward. He added, "Acquiring these Microsoft solutions is a major step which will not only enhance MCB Bank's Employees' productivity but will also help us to change the dynamics of the Infrastructure optimization model from standard to rationalized in a phased approach."
This upgrade with Microsoft products shouldn’t come as a surprise for MCB Bank. Like many other institutions, it pushes for efficiency. This latest investment in Microsoft’s services will allow them to improve efficiency by 30 percent due to the improved network, email hosting, and communication abilities between the staff and their customers.
