(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Muscat- Bank Sohar's one-minute mobile banking app redefines wireless banking, bringing added convenience and speedy service to customers anytime, anywhere. It comes as part of the bank's consistent efforts to provide banking excellence and enhance its retail services.
The app's features that are hallmarked by its ground-breaking one-minute transaction duration incorporate streamlined user friendliness and enhancements into its design technology and facilitate instant payments through Mobile Payment Clearing and Switching System (MpClear). Such features have allowed the app to gain further traction, resulting in a 50 per cent increase in the number of users this year.
Mujahid Said al Zadjaly, DGM - IT and Alternate Channels at Bank Sohar, said, 'We are driven by a strong commitment to provide customers with a complete and composite suite of retail services. This includes leveraging the most current technologies in the industry to create financial solutions that are up-to-date and cutting-edge.
'Customers of our one-minute mobile banking app will be able to appreciate these efficiencies of our online services because they are user friendly, instant and serve them on the go. The mobile banking app provides customers with state-of-the-art banking options, better convenience and smooth transactions wherever they go.'
The app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices, operates on a self-registration system and offers advanced security protocols and easy navigation. Aptly dubbed as simple, secure and efficient, Bank Sohar's one-minute mobile banking app seamlessly integrates banking activities with everyday life, making it a convenient choice for customers on the move all the time.
The app gained mass appeal since it was launched last year and it functions in both English and Arabic, offering a comprehensive list of services. With the help of the app's range of inter-operational features, customers can log into their accounts, view balance statements, review the last ten transactions, pay utility bills, such as electricity, water, mobile and fixed line bills free of charge, choose different payment options and more within a minute.
Any service that is offered in real time is available on the app at the customer's convenience to give them better control and autonomy over their banking transactions. The app can also conduct fund transfers in multiple currencies between Bank Sohar accounts or those of other banks instantly through MpClear. Customers can also request cheque books, manage their fixed deposit accounts, request demand drafts as well as make service requests.
