BisB wins the platinum “Marketing Effectiveness Award”

Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB) recently won the platinum “Marketing Effectiveness Award” at the Summit International Awards 2020. The award falls under the social media category in which BisB’s ‘End-to-End Mobile Account Opening through Face ID Authentication’ service was recognized.

The award was granted to recognize the social media strategy outlined to launch the End-to-End Mobile Account Opening through Face ID Authentication. Through the service, customers are able to open an account in less than 5 minutes without ever having to visit a branch. By simply downloading the “BisB Digital” application, and using the facial recognition feature, the entire process is streamlined through a fully automated, and paperless process, providing the ultimate convenience to customers.

When customers register to use the digital feature, they are prompted to upload necessary identification to ensure the highest level of security is maintained. Upon verification of information, customers will be able to immediately sign up for any of BisB’s products or services, enjoying a hassle-free and comfortable banking experience.
