Wio Bank, Virtuzone Virtuzone, a Company Formation Specialists and corporate services provider in the UAE, has joined forces with Wio Bank, a platform bank in the UAE, to transform the banking process for its clients through the next-generation digital banking solution, Wio Business.

Due to strict compliance requirements, opening a business bank account as an entrepreneur can prove to be challenging. With Wio Business, Virtuzone seeks to enhance business support for its clients through innovative banking solutions and empower them with the ability to open a fully digital corporate bank account within just a few days and without having to visit a physical location.

Built to get SMEs up and running quickly by providing easy and simple banking tools to manage their business better, Wio Business heralds the arrival of next-generation banking in the region. In line with the UAE’s Digital Economy Strategy, this partnership is a testament to Virtuzone’s future-forward approach and commitment to delivering customer-centric solutions for its customers.

Wio Business is curated to enable start-ups, freelancers and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with seamless access to business banking services while empowering them with innovative beyond-banking services.

Paul Bryson, Group Commercial Director at Virtuzone, said, “We are committed to supporting SMEs and assisting them in every way possible. As the world progresses towards digitisation, our clients are also looking for new ways to modernise their processes. We look forward to working with Wio to help businesses grow by instantly creating digital bank accounts without any physical paperwork or branch visits.”

In addition, George Hojeige, CEO of Virtuzone, commented, “As industries across the UAE undergo digital transformation, the banking sector is no exception. Despite this, many SMEs still rely on brick-and-mortar branches for opening and managing their business bank accounts. With Wio Business, we aim to empower the ambitions of our entrepreneurs through a robust digital financial system that offers cutting-edge banking solutions, laying the foundation for a futuristic economy.”

Prateek Vahie, Chief Commercial Officer at Wio Bank, said, “As businesses evolve to become more digital-first in their approach in response to changing consumer behaviour, banking operating models in the region need to mature as well. In Wio Business, we are offering a fast, easy and flexible banking solution to SMEs that helps them focus on their business and cater to their customers better. We are pleased to partner with Virtuzone to support their clientele with more seamless digital banking tools and services and further accelerate our aim to build a collaborative business banking ecosystem in the UAE.”
