There are few or no area in an organization which are likely to escape the impact of computerization since business need for providing information are increasing in volume and complexity, the use of computer as a machine, which can receive, process present information in to it, at a very speed is essential.

It is claimed that application of computer to record management in an office has made record management easier and more reliable. The concern of this study is, therefore to investigate the impact of application / utilization of computer an record management in the office.

1.1              Statement of the Problem

Also, we seek to determine and highlight the relative importance of computer as a means of keeping record over all other methods of record keeping like manual filling system and indexing etc.

1.2              Research Questions

The following question granted the study:

Ø  What impact does the computer have on record keeping in terms of reliability?

Ø  What impact does the computer have on record keeping in terms of speed?

Ø  What impact does the computer have on record keeping in terms of retrieval?

Ø  What impact does the computer have on effectiveness 0n record keeping?

1.3               Purpose of the Study

The purpose of this research work is:

  • To find out and show to the business world the record management features of the computer.
  • To determine its impact on the record management.
  • To determine its durability and reliability.
