Tahweel Al Rajh, the remittance arm of Saudi Arabia’s Al Rajhi Bank and a long-time partner of BDO Remit, opened its first digital remittance center to serve the round-the-clock banking needs of its clients, including overseas Filipinos.
Unlike other remittance centers in the kingdom, Tahweel Al Rajhi’s digital remittance center—dubbed as Tahweel Villagio—is operational 24/7. It also provides clients access to digital channels like ATMs (both for withdrawals and cash deposits), kiosk machines with point-of-sale terminals, smart phones and laptops, and is installed with LEDs that play how-to guides to assist customers on how to use the aforementioned channels.
The opening of the digital remittance center also paved the way for the launch of Tahweel’s instant remittance service.
BDO senior vice president and remittance head Genie Gloria said Friday that overseas Filipinos could now send money to their beneficiaries in the Philippines using only their phone. “Beneficiaries can receive their remittance sent from Saudi in their Kabayan account, in real time, through this app,” Gloria said.
