The platform also integrates virtual communications tools, including video conferencing and real-time screen sharing, to boost collaboration between customers and sales representatives.

Since its launch, over half of ADIB card sales are being conducted on the remote sales platform.

Samih Awadhalla, Head of Retail Distribution at ADIB apprised, “In recent months, we have witnessed a strong uptake for digital services with 75% of our customers now enrolled through the bank’s digital channels. In response to this accelerating demand, we have developed a virtual banking sales solution that blends the convenience of an easy-to-use digital platform with a highly personalized service delivered by our team of retail banking experts.”

ADIB has mentioned that it has seen a significant surge in customer demand for its digital banking services in 2020.

In addition, 50 per cent of new ADIB customers have opened their accounts digitally.

The virtual sales platform is the latest addition to ADIB’s suite of solutions allowing customers to access banking services remotely. Previously, the bank introduced a digital booking service, enabling customers to schedule their branch visits ahead of time through the online banking platform and mobile banking app. In addition, customers can virtually update their personal information such as their Emirates ID, Passport, and contact details without having to visit the branch.
