MUSCAT: Omantel unveiled its latest ‘Go Green’ initiative as it signed an agreement with National Bank of Oman (NBO).

The signing ceremony was conducted under the auspices of the Minister of Environment and Climate Affairs, H E Mohammed al Toobi, at Omantel’s headquarters, a press release said.

The deal will allow Omantel to submit employees’ income documents to NBO through secure e-mail improving time efficiencies, exhibiting NBO’s digital prowess and in-line with the bank’s long-standing commitment to sustainability and the environment.

NBO, the country’s first local bank, is widely recognised for its ability to deliver innovative digital solutions to support clients and their businesses. The bank is also dedicated to making a positive and sustainable difference in the community and the partnership with Omantel is another example of a collaborative effort between various divisions within the bank to offer customers a superior banking experience.

In addition to the provision of a paperless submission service, and as part of its holistic banking approach, NBO will set up a workplace banking service at Omantel’s premises, which will enable it to bring banking solutions and services closer to the telecommunication company’s employees, and to deliver a seamless banking experience.

Signing the ‘Go Green’ agreement with Omantel is a significant declaration of NBO’s ambition, digital capabilities and commitment to the environment. National Bank of Oman’s dedication to digital platforms and going paperless is one which provides a more efficient and greener system and the partnership with Omantel marks a crucial step on NBO’s path to becoming the bank of choice.

Already this year, the bank has launched two major apps to providing a full range of banking services, and the augmented reality app.
