The newly-launched kiosks, powered by advanced digital technology, will enable clients to execute a variety of financial services independently, namely client onboarding, account opening, issuing new debit and prepaid cards, issuing replacement cards, updating personal information instantly (e-KYC), or printing IBAN certificates, account statements, and outstanding note balances
Al Salam Bank of Bahrain, alongside exclusive digital services across the bank’s extensive network of branches, has launched its state-of-the-art self-service kiosk, serving clients 24/7.
Fully equipped with the Benefit Company’s biometric and e-KYC (Know Your Customer) authentication technology within the kingdom, the launch marks a milestone for the bank as the first to introduce a self-service banking kiosk.
Ensuring the delivery of a refined, transformative client experience, this comes in line with Al Salam Bank’s ongoing commitment to staying ahead of the latest trends in digital technology. Moreover, as Ithmaar Bank’s retail banking clients continue to migrate to Al Salam Bank, the new service will significantly facilitate a smooth and easy transition.
