DISTRIBUTION DEPARTMENT

    The IBL culture 
  • IBL promotes a culture of ‘work hard' that acts pivotal in maintaining an enthusiastic, motivational and ultimately professional place to work.


FINANCE DEPARTMENT
    Introduction to e-Banking
  • Over the past decade, competition in the banking and financial services industry has increased dramatically. Deregulation and emergence of the internet, e-commerce, and other enabling technologies have forced banks to find new ways to differentiate their products and services from those of their competitors. Advancement of information technology has further allowed banks to facilitate customers in a more efficient manner.
    Cash Management System in IBL
  • With growing business, Treasury has enhanced its ability to provide innovative and strategic cash management solution for effective cash management. 

    The Treasury continuously strive to enhance the business possibilities and improvement in system of funds collection for our Branches / Networks providing them with innovative and cost-effective cash management solution that unlock potential business opportunities specially in telecom sector and help create sustainable competitive advantages for the company. 

    Treasury truly believe that technology itself is not what makes the difference it is the solution and the vision behind it that makes a long-term impact on the success of the IBL. 

    We have signed a cash management agreement with Habib Bank Ltd and Union Bank Ltd for  speedy collection of funds from all 63 locations. 

    We will be collecting cash in 2 days instead of 3 -4 days.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT

The Information Technology Department is responsible for the information flow between 60+ locations of IBL across Pakistan and IBL and its business partners. Our IT Infrastructure has overwhelming recognition in the industry.  This Service department is an integral cog in the wheel of IBL operations! 

Over the last  years we have been busy with constant developments in our IT setup and today we stand at a place  where we have a lot to be proud of, with respect to Pakistan market:
  • Being pioneer in launching first of its kind internet based solution to provide real-time system access to our remote offices.

  • Being one of the very few companies that opted for Oracle Financials at a very early stage when most of the others were just getting to know about it; and interface of the same with home grown applications is another feather in our hat.

  • The launch of Field Force Automation project far ahead of our competition. 

  • To be one of the very few companies to implement best of breed Decision Support Systems at an early stage.

  • One of the very few companies that have full fledged IT setup, with its own software development, functional support, networking and hardware support teams. Something that is well recognized and appreciated by our business partners.
  • One of the very few non-IT companies focusing on implementing international standards and policies in IT Department to ensure consistent quality products and services delivery within acceptable timeframe.
All this have been made possible due to the vision IBL management carries and the importance it gives to invaluable but intangible asset i.e Information.
