Boubyan Bank & Salhia Real Estate Company Launch K-Net Parking Payment Service
Al-Shammiri: This Service is an Addition to the Kuwaiti Market which Is Keeping Pace with Global Technological Developments
Salhia Real Estate Company Seeks Excellence & Leadership through Reducing Human Effort in Parking Services
In collaboration with the Shared Electronic Banking Services Company (K-Net) and Zamco Integrated Solutions Company, Boubyan Bank and Salhia Real Estate Company have recently announced the launch of the first P.O.S. service in Kuwait at parking lots to facilitate the use of parking services at Salhia and Al-Raya complexes in order to cope with the latest developments and provide top notch services at Salhia Real Estate company's parking lots.
The new service simply works by inserting the parking lot ticket into the machine and using customers’ debit cards issued from Kuwaiti banks by inserting them or using the contactless UTap feature to allow the parking gate to open swiftly, helping avoid overcrowding and saving time.
In this regard, Mr. Khalid Al-Shammiri, Boubyan Bank’s Executive Manager – Direct Banking Channels, stated: “This step is a significant addition to the Kuwaiti market which is already witnessing rapid and successive developments in offering more technological services that facilitate the lives of citizens and residents and reduce the use of cash in simple daily transactions.”
He added: “Out of its keenness on being a role model of simple life, Boubyan Bank spares no effort in coping with global technology, adapting and introducing it to the Kuwaiti market in the form of products and services that would make life easier and save time and effort.”
Al-Shammiri went on to stress: “Boubyan Bank has recently inked several partnerships that have had positive impacts on the local market and helped it keep up with the world's latest digital developments.”
Meanwhile, Salhia Real Estate Company explained that it constantly seeks excellence and leadership by employing all modern technology means and state-of-the-art products, and implementing the same in Kuwait and incorporating them with the company's parking services provided at Salhia and Al-Raya commercial complexes located at Kuwait City and, later on, at the Capital Mall.
Adding the K-Net payment service at Salhia Real Estate Company properties' parking lots is a leading innovative step as it is the first Kuwaiti company to ever provide the service to facilitate entrance and exit to and from parking lots without human interference and using K-Net services at all the parking lots’ exits.
Moreover, the company pointed that it has recently provided its parking lots with auto-guide services, which help drivers locate vacant parking spots swiftly and easily. In addition, and out of its commitment to protecting the environment and enhancing the concept of sustainable development, Salhia Real Estate Company has provided power chargers to provide electric vehicles with environment-friendly energy at all of its parking lots. This new experimental service will be adapted and efficiently implemented at the Capital Mall parking lots, which accommodate around 2,000 vehicles.
