In line with its vision and mission to be the trusted and preferred banking partner dedicated to creating unique value for its customers, Ahli Bank has rolled out an upgraded B2B electronic platform – ‘Ahli B2B’, for its corporate customers.
Ahli B2B, is equipped with a host of special features that have been designed while keeping in mind the complete convenience and ease-of-use for corporate clients. It enables clients to process different types of payment instructions such as transfers, salary transfers, single payments, bulk payments, direct debits, standing Instructions management and managing beneficiaries through seamless integration with the organisations’ ERP system.
Ahli B2B comes with a built-in and flexible approval workflow matrix and processing engine. The platform can facilitate automated reconciliation on the organisation’s ERP system by providing statements in PDF, MT 940 and Excel formats. Ahli B2B also has the capability of providing instant notifications to the organisation’s ERP system in relation to the account activities. In addition, customers can view their SWIFT confirmation of the transfer from the platform itself. Ahli’s B2B platform is flexible and can be deployed across a wide range of industries and sectors such as Manufacturing, Financial Services, Oil & Gas, Education and Real Estate, to name a few.
Commenting on the roll-out of Ahli B2B – Ms. Hanaa Al Kharusi, GM Corporate Banking at Ahli Bank stated, “We are delighted to implement the upgraded Ahli B2B platform for our valued customers. Our team has worked tirelessly over the last few months and the Bank has made significant investments to make the platform more user friendly, safe and secure. We trust that Ahli B2B will meet the day-to-day banking requirements of our discerning customers to their complete satisfaction, especially under the current circumstances, for the safety of client’s employees as well as the Bank’s. It is prudent to onboard onto electronic channels at this time to accelerate digitalisation plans within organisations.”
In addition to implementing the upgraded Ahli B2B platform, and in line with its objective of enhancing its focus on technology and digitalisation to improve customers’ overall user experience, Ahli Bank has recently upgraded various electronic channels available to corporate clients including the Corporate Internet Banking platform – ‘ahlinet’ which offers greater flexibility and several additional features for more convenient transaction banking. Ahli Bank continues to expand its reach with the latest Point of Sale (POS) offerings powered by AFS, which are rapidly increasing in popularity across the country. Ahli Bank’s Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) offerings make it very convenient for customers to deposit their cheques with the bank from the convenience of their offices instead of visiting a branch.
As an ISO 27001 certified bank, Ahli Bank treats safety and security of transactions with utmost importance. Ahli B2B is embedded with a host of latest security features such as access over an SSL encrypted channel, several levels of authorisation for transaction processing, firewalls, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and antivirus protection features, amongst several other important security features.
As a leader in providing structured and customised array of banking solutions, to customers throughout the Sultanate, Ahli Bank will continue to invest significantly in digitalisation and relevant technologies in the coming years; with the goal of providing a seamless and smooth experience and service to all clients.
