Information Technology: Developments & Applications
In the field of Information Technology (IT), the Company holds service agreements with IBM Sri Lanka and leading hardware companies to minimise downtime, and maintains a backup server in case of a major breakdown of the main database. The Company's IT system is an integral element of its logistical operations. We consider investment in IT technology a substantial benefit to both the Company and our customers. Our IT configuration enables full staff networking within assigned security parameters. Networked branches permit management to monitor vital information and business transactions from any office or branch and from remote locations.
A link with the Commercial Bank of Ceylon enables our customers to make payments using any of the bank's more than one hundred branches, which automatically update their accounts. More links with major banks are in process
We provide direct links to banks to which the Company has pledged our portfolio for re-finance, enabling trustees and banks alike to monitor contract performance. We link directly with insurance companies to speed inter-agency transactions.
The Company installed a state-of-the-art firewall system, and strengthened its network and database security systems ensuring total confidentiality of customer transactions. These system upgrades have created a fast, customer-friendly and fully interactive truly 'paperless' environment. By assigning a 'shelf life' to our IT systems, we ensure we stay abreast of change and are continually upgrading our system for the benefit of our business partners.
The modern world demands that a large part of a business' public profile lies in the area of social responsibility. Rather than merely looking out for the bottom line, a modern company must be perceived as an active member of the community in which it operates.
From its inception, Senkadagala Finance PLC has placed high value on responsibility to serving its community. As with any successful company, social responsibility is an integral part of our business philosophy and our yearly planning process. The Company cannot be successful without the confidence of our society, which we serve through our work.
Education is the key to development. We have taken the initiative to sponsor many development projects in the Kurunegala and Kandy districts. We have provided scholarships and donated equipment such as computers to help schools become better centres of learning. We have also made donations to help disabled soldiers.
In the year 2004 our country suffered a series of disastrous events. The latter part of the year was particularly significant when the nation's coastal belt was devastated on Boxing Day, December 26th, with a series of Tsunami waves. In response, we as dutiful corporate citizens, immediately took part in the rehabilitation process and contributed significantly to the cause of our nation.
