Warba Bank’s five-year strategy (2017-2021) relies heavily on upgrading the bank’s digital database and providing electronic services that meet clients’ needs.
Based on that, the bank has intensified its efforts recently to achieve leadership in offering e-banking services, and has launched a number of advanced services to cope with the technological and digital advancements of the global banking sector, and offer more flexible and easy-to-use transactions that save client's’ time and efforts.
In order to add more flexibility to banking transactions done through the bank's official website ‘Warba Online’ or smartphone apps, Warba Bank improved those transactions, making them clearer and easier to access.
Haytham Al-Terkait, Chief Technology Officer, said on that regard, “The new improvements include adding clear colours around edges and using detailed text written professionally to describe services and answer all clients’ inquiries.”
Al-Terkait added that Warba Bank’s initiative in improving its website and smartphone app helps provide instant service to meet clients’ growing demand, especially that those electronic services are labelled under the ‘express’ label.
