- LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
These are the following things that limit the computer based treasury management system (constraint).
FINANCIAL PROBLEM: There is no enough fund for the researcher to carry out this work starting from buying the necessary textbook handout, journal and other reference material for gathering facts, preparation and transportation fare even the money to take for myself.
INTERNET FACILITIES: The demand for internet user is greater than the internet centers available also the browsing capabilities is very slow making it difficult to get research material at ease because there are so many user in the internet centre.
TIME LIMITATION: A researcher cannot boast a present accuracy of the research work due to difficulties ranging from other academic work, health condition and other distraction during the period of the research work, because in the work there is limited amount of time even from the research to be carried out.
COOPERATION AMONG THE STAFF: The researcher should approach to the staff of organization treasuring management system. Some of the responses to the researcher because of fare in the society. They filled that some researcher are fraud star. I find it difficult to get the accurate information.
- DEFINITION OF TERMS
