KFH-Bahrain launches online banking services
Manama, February 22, 2010
Kuwait Finance House-Bahrain (KFH-Bahrain) has launched its online e-banking services, enhancing the range of services currently available to its customers.
The online service, www.kfhbonline.com, will provide its retail customers with the added advantage of securely accessing account balances, transfers between accounts within the bank as well as with other local or international banks, and the facility to open and manage their deposits.
Moreover, clients will be able to personalise their electronic statements, view detailed statements of their credit and 'Baytik Ijara' cards as well as cheques. Payments for mobile and credit cards can now be made online in addition to viewing the latest facilities offered by KFH-Bahrain, all at their own convenience.
"Bahrain consumers have now become increasingly familiar and comfortable with virtual banking services, whether it is telebanking or via the Internet," KFH-Bahrain managing director and chief executive Abdulhakeem Alkhayyat said.
"Consumers are now even accepting their bills in paperless form, such as a fully electronically delivered bill together with a fully electronic payment option in addition to viewing and managing their accounts conveniently.
"With the recent implementation of our online banking service, customers will enjoy additional benefits that will provide an even broader range of banking services."
The new website is designed to be customer-friendly and user-centric, within a high availability environment, enabling real-time transactions all under a high level of security. It also allows customers to apply for products without the need to visit branches.
The new e-banking service is certified by SSL certification from Network Solutions, a subsidiary of VeriSign, US, which provides full protection for customers' information and transactions under the highest level of data encryption.
As part of the bank's initiatives to enhance its customers' banking experience, KFH-Bahrain is constantly striving to recognise opportunities to make a real difference to its customers. Corporate accounts are soon to be included on the e-banking website, while SMS banking and IVR telebanking services will also be introduced in the near future.
Customers can access their account from the comfort of their own home by registering online.-TradeArabia News Service
