KFH starts op­er­at­ing largest ATM sys­tems’ net­work for the blind

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Kuwait Fi­nance House (KFH) an­nounced the com­mence­ment of op­er­a­tion of 10 ATMs pro­vided spe­cially for the blind in var­i­ous ar­eas of Kuwait in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their con­di­tions and dif­fi­cul­ties and to en­sure that they avail the best ser­vice that suites their cir­cum­stances.

Deputy Gen­eral Man­ager at KFH Khaled Al-Subaie stated in a press re­lease that KFH is keen on pro­vid­ing bank­ing ser­vices to var­i­ous tiers of cus­tomers and pro­vide all means to ob­tain such ser­vices smoothly and eas­ily, es­pe­cially cus­tomers with spe­cial needs. Ac­cord­ingly, KFH has com­menced the op­er­a­tion of 10 ATMs which are al­lo­cated spe­cially for blind peo­ple in its branches in Keefan - Rawda - Shaab Zahraa - Mubarak Al-Kabeer - Dha­her - Fa­ha­heel - Ri­hab Saad Al-Ab­dul­lah and Jahraa, Mikhyal Mall. He in­di­cated that ATM ma­chines were distributed in var­i­ous ar­eas of the coun­try in or­der to serve the largest num­ber of cus­tomers bear­ing in mind that such ma­chines have highly so­phis­ti­cated spec­i­fi­ca­tions to suite blind peo­ples’ needs.

Subaie em­pha­sized that the ma­chines have com­mon spec­i­fi­ca­tions, i.e. en­able the blind to write by us­ing Braille let­ters, tak­ing voice instructions to fa­cil­i­tate pro­ce­dures for all users. ATM ma­chines are placed in easy to reach lo­ca­tions to en­sure that users do not suf­fer any dif­fi­cul­ties, bear­ing in mind that the ma­chines are fully se­cured and mon­i­tored.

He added that KFH is the lead­ing bank where ATMs are con­cerned. With the op­er­a­tion of these ma­chines KFH be­comes the lead­ing bank in pro­vid­ing ATM ma­chines for the blind. He re­it­er­ated that KFH con­tin­ues to adopt the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in tech­no­log­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture to bet­ter serve its cus­tomers and im­ple­ment the di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion and com­pre­hen­sive­ness. Tech­nol­ogy and ma­chin­ery have be­come an added value for quick bank­ing and one of the ba­sic re­quire­ments of cus­tomers.

KFH so­phis­ti­cated ATM sys­tems pro­vide var­i­ous ad­van­tages, e.g. open­ing in­vest­ment de­posits, cash with­drawal ser­vice, bal­ance in­quiries, short and in­stant ac­count state­ment, cheque books, cash de­posit for re­tail and cor­po­rate cus­tomers.
