Bank Sohar has expanded its operational network to provide added convenience for customers by installing a new offsite ATM at LuLu Hypermarket in Al Rustaq. With a view to deliver banking excellence through a comprehensive strategy to enhance service facilities, the bank introduced its 66th ATM following two others at landmark developments in Muscat.
Mr. Rajeev Arora, DGM and Head of Retail Banking at Bank Sohar, said, “Our dedication to improving customers’ banking experience is an ongoing agenda and we are always on the lookout for new opportunities to truly reflect this year’s drive marked as the ‘Year of You’. Our ATM network is at the core of our operational network, both onsite at Bank Sohar branches and off-site at other strategic locations nationwide.
With extensive focus being given to customers in, we are continuing to identify opportunities to cater to the greatest number in high footfall areas, and thus meet market demand with provisions that serve local communities with efficient and continued developments”.
The new ATM comes in line with the Bank’s strategy to expand both; service and human touch-points across the Nation. Earlier this year, Bank Sohar installed ATMs at Muscat International Airport’s Arrivals Hall, Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre in Ghala, Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (ORPIC) in Sohar, and Marmul Travel and Tours’ Head Office in Al Khuwair.
Bank Sohar customers continue to enjoy cash withdrawal services at over 1,000 ATMs across the Sultanate that operate under the ‘OmanNet’ platform. On-site ATMs at Bank Sohar branches offer cash withdrawal and depository services, as well as fund transfer services, allowing customers to perform cash management 24/7 without having to visit branches during working hours. The bank’s ATMs at the Buraimi, Shinas, and Khasab borders further offer users a ‘Dirhams Dispensing’ facility for business travelers transacting across the border, as well as customers and other visitors to the United Arab Emirates.
Reinforcing its delivery of convenient and secure access points for customers, Bank Sohar’s e-channels encompass SMS Banking, Internet Banking services, including Oman’s first interactive e-statement service and a specialised Mobile Banking app for Android and iOS devices.
