The explosive adoption of the Mobile phone in a resource constrained country like Bangladesh pro-vides an opportunity to offer information systems using mobile phones. Mobile phone based informa-tion systems (MBIS) can potentially empower employees, improve job satisfaction and increase pro-ductivity. This study seeks to investigate MBIS based empowerment, job satisfaction and production in the Ready Made Garment (RMG) industry in Bangladesh. The literature suggests there is a possible production improvement opportunity in RMG. The variable ‘mobile based empowerment’ has a link to the moderating variable ‘job satisfaction’ and the outcome variable ‘production improvement’. A pilot study has been undertaken in Bangladesh from August to November 2017. We present some initial results from our investigation.
