To make the ATM banking experience simpler, safer and secure
Kuwait Finance House – Bahrain (KFH-Bahrain) is equipping customers with upgraded automated telling machines (ATMs) – reported AME Info. In relation to this, it has recently signed a cooperation agreement with Sinnad Company to manage its network of ATM machines, issued ATM EMV-compliant smart cards and connected them with Benefit and Visa networks, while monitoring and managing electronic transaction risks.
Reportedly, the new machines, which were recently deployed throughout KFH-Bahrain’s ATM network, employ a technology that enables customers to perform a wide range of transactions. The machines include secure card slots and EMV readers.
KFH-Bahrain has said that it has also expanded its network to include 6 stand-alone ATMs, 5 drive-through ATMs, and many more in its network of branches. This currently consists of 8 branches, all located in strategic and key locations throughout the Kingdom. Reportedly, the new ATMs are designed to make the ATM banking experience simpler, safer and more secure.
Khalid Rafea, executive manager and head of banking group, said: “We at KFH—Bahrain realise that the standards and expectations of our customers for banking have changed. This understanding of our customer’s needs is applied in everything that we do, whether it be in our branches, our products and services and now our ATMs. This customer centric philosophy is the foundation upon which our promise to be a next generation bank that does things differently is built upon.”
