Bank of Bahrain and Kuwait account opening to be paperless

The initiative minimises customers’ waiting time at the branches


MANAMA: BBK is introducing a paperless account opening process at its branches in the form of tablets powered by the BBKPLUS app.

These tablets enable branch hosts to onboard customers who wish to open accounts with BBK, through the BBKPLUS onboarding app.

The app provides a quick yet secure account opening application process using the latest technologies such as ID and identity verification, customer screening and document verification, with fewer signatures and no paperwork.

The initiative minimises customers’ waiting time at the branches.

BBK Group chief executive Dr AbdulRahman Saif said: “This is part of the bank’s plan in offering an experience that accommodates our customers fast paced lifestyles.

Going paperless on all retail account openings is a value added action for the environment and we are happy that the business efficiency goals are aligned with social responsibility.”
