United Arab Emirates – In line with the Bank’s strategy in offering its customers a more holistic banking experience, RAKBANK recently announced the launch of the contactless* cash withdrawal facility that is available on more than 170 NFC enabled ATMs. The Bank has more than 200,000 active cardholders that are able to use their NFC enabled RAKBANK credit or debit card at any of the NFC enabled ATMs to conveniently withdraw cash. The integration of additional FinTech models into the Bank’s operations will provide new opportunities for customers similar to the Apple Pay and Samsung Pay experience, which were rolled out back in 2017.
The Bank is committed to strengthen its Digital Banking services to customers, whereby cardholders do not have to register to gain access to this convenient service or take any unnecessary steps to use the facility. All cardholders need to do is to tap their cards on the clearly marked NFC reader that is available on RAKBANK ATMs and then enter their PIN and amount required to withdraw their cash.
“RAKBANK has always been at the forefront of empowering customers with technology-based solutions that save them time, effort and money. While maintaining a customer-centric approach, the Bank built on the achievements of the previous year and set the scene for continued future growth, which emphasized the importance of innovation,” said RAKBANK COO, Geoff Stecyk. “This launch is the first of its kind in the UAE and is firmly aligned with the Bank’s focus on innovation to leverage emerging technologies in delivering new and personalized experiences that help our customers’ access simply better digital banking solutions,” he added.
The Bank will continue to find ways to improve efficiency, and engage in strategic partnerships that will give the Bank a competitive edge in the market. Looking ahead, RAKBANK will continue to look to FinTech and other innovative solutions as it invests in product, service and technology enhancements. This will help the Bank offer the fullest possible range of products and services to its customers.
Currently this facility is only available for RAKBANK Contactless Cards.
