A first in Kuwait: KFH launches Cheque Deposit Solution via Mobile
Cheque Deposit now simpler; safer and more secure
Kuwait Finance House (KFH) has launched the first ever Mobile Deposit of Cheques service to customers. This confirms the leadership position of the bank in offering high end digital banking services that cater for customers’ aspirations.
This unique Mobile Deposit of Cheques service was launched in collaboration with the renowned ProgressSoft corporation, a leading international IT Solutions provider.
This service enables quick deposit of cheques in a fast and efficient way to customers’ accounts – simply by using a screenshot of the original cheque through KFH Online.
KFH customers can simply log into their KFH mobile app, go to the cheque deposit menu and take a picture of both sides of the cheques using their smart phone camera. The funds will then be deposited directly into their accounts through KFH Online app. This provides customers with a mobile capability that enables faster and more convenient money management, especially that physical cheque is not required to be delivered to a branch.
Group Chief Retail and Private Banking Officer at KFH, Waleed Khaled Mandani said that “the new digital banking service confirms KFH is on track of its digital transformation strategy, indicating Mobile Deposit of Cheques saves KFH customers the time and effort to visit a branch to deposit cheques, while maintaining highest safety and security levels.
