This step is a turning point in the way we can cater for our customers with all transactions available electronically and supports our direction toward smart transformation, enhancing Dubai’s mission to be the smartest city globally. With “Rosoom” our clients can complete their transactions at their own convenience, anywhere, anytime. This will allow them to focus more on their business needs rather than the routine procedures involved with payment transactions.”
Al Dehail, added: “We chose “Rosoom” for the various features it has, including the variety of payment options through major credit cards, direct debit by linking to online internet banking portals of major banks and pre-payment tools such as the e-dirham so that our customers can easily process their payment transactions. The service also offers the highest levels of safety, security and protection and has not seen any scams or identity theft since launched.”
“Rosoom” also supports mobile payment transactions, making it an ideal platform to provide Trakhees’ services via smart applications. It offers live and real-time payment reporting, allowing both customers and Trakhees finance department to communicate more effectively on payments and financial transactions. “Rosoom” is currently integrated with seven banks including Emirates NBD, HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank, First Gulf Bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, Habib Bank AG Zurich and Emirates Islamic Bank.
The programming interface for “Rosoom” enables it to be integrated seamlessly with any e-Service allowing easy upgrades and enhancements and making it the ideal and preferred e-payment solution.
