stc Bahrain, a Fintech solutions provider and telecommunications firm, has revealed that it’s introducing new working procedures, in order to ensure safety of its workers during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The Bahrain-based Fintech said it aims to continue to offer innovative financial services to support the Middle Eastern Kingdom’s residents during the coronavirus pandemic.
Nezar Banabeela, CEO at stc Bahrain, stated:
“We believe in the importance of prioritizing the protection of employees and citizens, and we are working hand in hand with all government bodies in these tough times to ensure that we collectively support Bahrain.”
“Today, and in cooperation with King Hamad University Hospital, and as part of our efforts to help reduce the wide spread of the COVID-19 virus, we provided the hospital with the latest and most advanced video collaboration tools to enable remote patient monitoring and video consultation in order to help reduce visitors to the hospital during these times.”
He also noted that his company has advised local residents to stay safe at home and avoid going out except in the case of emergencies. He recommends using digital platforms and mobile or internet-based financial services as they offer safe ways for people to conduct their daily activities.
Banabeela also mentioned:
“From our side, and while all our shops are still welcoming visitors, we advise our customers to use our digital and mobile financial services such as stc Pay, our mobile app, and our e-shop for the utmost safety and flexibility in today’s challenging times.”
stc Bahrain also recommends using its mobile app for payments of company product subscriptions. Users also have the option of using stcPay for carrying out financial transactions.
In December of last year, stc Bahrain established its new business identity by rebranding and changing its name (was previously called VIVA Bahrain).
stc Bahrain invests in new and innovative technologies and provides various Fintech products with its stc pay services.
