Alinma Bank has launched a comprehensive smartphone application that allows its partners to execute all their banking operations through their smartphones. The new application is compatible with all versions of Apple, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry operating systems in both Arabic and English. The launch represents an unprecedented technological development in the banking sector and was timed to enhance Alinma’s “Banking Redefined” marketing campaign, which was recently launched to draw attention the bank’s distinctive products and services and its vision to be the preferred financial partner for all.
On this occasion, Mr. Abdulmohsen Al-Fares, the CEO of Alinma Bank, said, “The ‘Banking Redefined’ campaign functions to enhance partner (customer) confidence in Alinma Bank by providing them exemplary banking products and services that meet their needs and aspirations using the best, contemporary banking technologies.”
Mr. Al-Fares added that the new application joined an already impressive list of service and technological firsts introduced by the bank that allow partners to execute all of their banking transactions securely, around-the-clock.
Mr. Ibrahim Al-Sayyari, the general manager of IT at Alinma, said that the single comprehensive application enables the execution of all banking services available via the bank’s website (www.alinma.com). He also noted that the application was compatible with a broad range of mobile and smart devices currently available in both local and international markets.
The introduction of this application comes at a time when the complexity of mobile technology makes it difficult for users find reliable applications that both suit their needs and are compatible with their devices. The Alinma application, however, has undergone extensive cross-platform testing to ensure compatibility and requisite functionality. Additionally, the new application enables partners to locate the nearest Alinma branch or ATM.
The new application’s functionality includes, but is not limited to, the following: branch and ATM location search, blind partner access, and the full range of services available at Alinma.com.
