Sohar Islamic, after the successful launch of SMS banking services, announced e-banking services for customers with the launch of its new Internet Banking Facility. The new service aims to enhance the customer experience as it offers flexibility and convenience. Customers will now be able to access banking services regardless of their location or time of the day. The online portal will be available for safe and secure online transactions round the clock.

In order to access the services, customers need to log in, which is available on the official Sohar Islamic website. Once the customer is logged in, the user-friendly portal and interactive interface allows users to manage their account, conduct transactions and benefit from other online services. Customers are required to visit their nearest Sohar Islamic branch to register themselves for this free service.

Mr. Mohammad Haris, AGM and Head of Sohar Islamic said that the launch of online banking facility is a big achievement for the bank, which reflects the proactive attitude towards embracing technology and ensuring high quality customer service through better and efficient systems. He further added that the introduction of online banking would add to the customer value and offer unmatched convenience.

The launch of Sohar Islamic banking facility is succeeded by the launch of SMS banking services, which became operational in September. Both of these services will complement each other, with the well-integrated approach and bilingual support. The SMS service offers a wide variety of services including ATM and CDM transactions, all deposits, withdrawals and transfers, account balance alerts, end of day balance reports and salary transfer notifications. Alerts are sent to customers as soon as transactions are conducted. Additionally, monthly reminders will be sent containing information regarding installment dues, document and ID expiry alerts as well as promotional benefits and added features.

Sohar Islamic’s internet and SMS banking services smoothly blend in with its other banking solutions that meet various retail and corporate financing needs.
