We pledge to continue to support their plans and ambitions as we continue delivering on our promise of superior client service,” added Al Qassim.

Corporate Banking has witnessed a significant 60 per cent month-on-month increase in digital on-boarding volumes as new and existing transaction banking clients opt for digital channels for their ongoing cash management and trade finance requirements. The bank further reports that 96 per cent of the Corporate Banking division’s payment volumes are now processed through its digital channels with smartBUSINESS payments, smartTrade services and ICCS Collect (remote cheque deposit) being the top three services availed by clients.

The bank recently enhanced its smartTRADE portal introducing a smartCOLLECTION service that enables clients to request processing of Export Collections entirely online.
