Personal Digital Assistant

The Use of Palm Pilots

The MABS Program introduced the use of small handheld computers, or personal digital assistants (PDA) for loan collection.

 

Collection information is stored electronically on the PDA. After loan collection, an Account Officer uploads information from the PDA to the MIS system.

The PDA system can cut costs by reducing the manual entry of daily transaction data.

A comparative study conducted by the Rural Bank of Dipolog in Zamboanga del Norte revealed that as of July 2002, the bank’s microfinance unit cut costs by 60 percent after turning to Palm Pilots for microfinance collections.
