Sms banking in Qatar
At one point of time, online banking was a "must have" requirement for all the major baking, sorry, banking sectors. In the new era it is SMS banking or Mobile banking that all banking sectors are focused on! Apparently, DOHA Bank joined the sms banking club sprucing up its Internet banking for both retail and corporate customers.
Acting general manager R Seetharaman said yesterday many features had been added to enhance “corporate usage” of Doha Bank’s Internet banking. Corporate customers can now undertake funds transfers between “subsidiaries”. E-mail and SMS alerts can be enabled to corporate signatories on submission of new tasks, or while logging on to the Internet banking channels.
Besides Doha Bank’s corporate customers, the retail segment can also undertake foreign currency transfers through the Internet now. E-statement has been introduced under which customers can decide the frequency of statements to be dispatched to an e-mail address of their choice.
Customers can also place requests for many services from their homes or a place of their choice on a round-the-clock basis. These include reactivation of ATM and credit cards, registration for ATM use, request for various types of consumer loans, registration for Dbank services such as Dbank Dial Telebanking, Dbank SMS banking, QPAck and Al Asriya applications and standing instructions and electronic statements.
In today’s competitive global marketplace, it’s critical that we give topmost priority to consumer convenience on a 24x7 basis. There should neither be time nor location constraints. We have added many new features to our Internet banking suite to provide significant value to our customers. Doha Bank has been adjudged the best bank in Qatar by Euromoney and best commercial bank in the region by Banker Middle East. We are fully committed to providing best value to our customers forever, he added.
