This descriptive study is about the computerization in Rural Bank of Porac. The study focused on the consequences and factors that facilitated and/or hindered the use of computers. The researchers used in-depth interview in obtaining the data essential to the study. There were 20 respondents from the four departments of the bank namely, cash, loans, administration and accounting departments that were chosen for the study. Five (5) managers and fifteen (15) employees were asked about the consequences of computerization in their areas of work as well as the factors that have facilitated and/or hindered their adoption. From the results that were gathered and analyzed, the researchers found out that all of the respondents were willing to accept computerization and the consequences were mostly positive.
