Ms. Guo, a middle level official of a China central enterprise, is the financial manager of the family as well.
Before: she had no time to manger salary account due to busy work, so she just changed salaries into fixed deposits every half year, and plenty of salaries were therefore idle in the current account.
Now: through applying for "Fixed-Current Link Deposit Program", ICBC computer system automatically checks Ms. Guo's salary account on a monthly basis; and when the funds on her salary account are more than set funds amount, the system will automatically change the extra funds into fixed deposits. When there are no sufficient funds on her bank card due to her spending or withdrawing cash, the fixed deposits will be automatically changed into current deposit, which avoids the embarrassments caused by the un-sufficient funds on the bank card.
