QNB brings SMEs to­gether to pro­mote e-Com­merce

Gulf Times Business - - BUSINESS -

QNB re­cently or­gan­ised a brief­ing work­shop about QNB-Sim­plify e-com­merce, an in­no­va­tive cloud-based plat­form that al­lows mer­chants to cre­ate their on­line shop. Or­gan­ised in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mastercard, the global lead­ing tech­nol­ogy and pay­ments provider and the plat­form’s tech­nol­ogy part­ner, the event brought to­gether more than

150 en­trepreneurs and small and medium-sized en­ter­prises (SMEs) in Qatar, re­flect­ing QNB’s keen­ness to pro­mote this plat­form, which was launched ear­lier this year in co- op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Trans­port and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

This event took place within the frame­work of QNB’s ef­forts to in­tro­duce its new plat­form aimed at pro­mot­ing dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion, ex­cel­lence in en­trepreneur­ship and in­no­va­tion in all sec­tors, while sup­port­ing the on­go­ing ef­forts to achieve sus­tain­able eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment as an es­sen­tial part of the Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion (QNV) 2030. The work­shop in­cluded live demon­stra­tions and pre­sen­ta­tions of the suc­cess­ful jour­neys of the par­tic­i­pat­ing en­trepreneurs and SMEs in the use of this plat­form, the first of its kind in Qatar.

The event gave ma­jor op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­tro­duce ‘QNB-Sim­plify’ plat­form as an end-to-end e-com­merce so­lu­tion that al­lows any reg­is­tered busi­ness to take their prod­ucts on­line with­out any tech­nol­ogy in­fra­struc­ture or tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise, eas­ily and quickly — with no up­front cost and con­trib­ute in pro­mot­ing dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion and com­pet­i­tive­ness in the Qatari mar­ket.

The group’s pres­ence through its sub­sidiaries and as­so­ciate com­pa­nies now ex­tends to more than 31 coun­tries across three con­ti­nents, pro­vid­ing a com­pre­hen­sive range of ad­vanced prod­ucts and ser­vices.

The to­tal num­ber of em­ploy­ees is around 29,000, op­er­at­ing through more than 1,200 lo­ca­tions, with an ATM net­work of more than 4,300 ma­chines.
