The new branch opened its doors to customers on 18th March 2018 in the presence of Mr. Rejeev Arora, DGM & Head Retail Banking, Mr. Khamis Masoud Al Rahbi, Senior AGM Retail Banking, and other members of the Bank’s management team to ensure the new branch is set to truly reflect Bank Sohar’s drive to excel in all aspects of customer service. In commemoration of the soft launch, the Bank presented a special gift to the first customer who opened an account at the branch.
Commenting on the bank’s expanding network, Mr. Rajeev Arora, DGM & Head Retail Banking Bank Sohar, said, “We are focussed on providing our growing customer base across the country with a complete range of innovative and superior quality banking and financial solutions. The new branch in Wattayah has been set up with this objective in mind and to ensure that our customers enjoy an enriching experience wherever they go.”
Conveniently located in Al Rumaylah Street in Al Wattayah, the new branch houses a spacious design covering a range of customer friendly facilities. Manned by qualified and friendly staff, the branch offers customers with the Bank’s complete portfolio of products and services from 08:00am till 2:00pm every working day. As with the other Bank Sohar branches, the Al Wattaya branch also offers customers a full-fledged ATM and CDM facility.
Since inception in 2007, Bank Sohar has been consistently bringing innovation and excellence to Oman’s banking sector through its extensive operational network of branches and value-additions such as convenient cash withdrawal services at over 1,000 ATMs across the country that operate under the ‘OmanNet’. The Bank’s ATMs at Buraimi and Shinas border continue to operate with the ‘Dirhams Dispensing’ facility; thus adding immense convenience to businessmen who travel and transact business across the border on a regular basis, as well as to customers who visit the United Arab Emirates. The Bank’s customers enjoy the advantage of a Cash Deposit facility at all branch ATMs as another value-added service. In addition, the Bank’s E-channels, encompassing SMS Banking, Internet Banking services and a specialised Mobile Banking Application for Android and iPhones, allow customers to access their bank anytime and from anywhere. Furthermore, Bank Sohar has implemented the Mobile Payment Clearing and Switching System (MpClear), where customers will be able to conduct funds transfers on the Bank Sohar Mobile Banking App, using their phone numbers instead of their account numbers, which allows transfers 24x7.
