This chapter presents the background of the study, problem and its significance, and the scope and limitation of the study.
Background of the Study
Nowadays, we are innovating from manual to computerized system so that the human-effort are lessen through this innovation, every company has their own systems according of what does the specialization of their company is. Typically, there’s a minimal percentage who’s using a manual system which is recording data into their permanent storage which is paper.
There’s a pawnshop still using a manual system, they write all the information about their customers to comply on the protocol of their pawning system and they manually computed the interest or the payment of each customer. But in this study, the proponents made a system that the owners or the secretaries of the pawnshop will not be able to write and manually compute the payment but to encode the information in computerized way which is by using an E-Pawning system. The proponents believe whoever use this system, their efforts as an employer of the pawnshop will lessen so that they can manage their time.
Some customers are bothered about the due date of their mortgaged whether it is jewelries or gadgets, so that the proponents proposed this study in order for the customer be informed to avoid the loses of their things because of the system SMS Notification that will notified them five(5) days before their due date for payment.

•Employer – the employer is also the beneficiaries of this system, through this system, the employer has the ability to manage his time because of the automated computation of payment of each customer.
•Future Researchers. This study will serves as reference for the future researchers on their future study.
Scope and Delimitations
This study covers the pawnshop in San Leonardo. The customers will have an information according on their mortgaged through the system SMS Notification. This proposed study is aiming to ensure all the information by the customer be secured to avoid the duplication of data because of its unique identity of each customer and to also avoid the losses of their things.
