ABN AMRO Salary Card to revolutionise salary payments
- United Arab Emirates: Sunday, July 24 - 2005 at 10:10
- PRESS RELEASE
ABN AMRO, the leading international bank in the UAE, today announced the official launch of its new Salary Card designed to provide customers greater convenience making all salary transfers simple and easy.
The innovative new product makes banking easier, offering a host of benefits and features. Cardholders can use the Salary Card to pay for purchases at millions of establishments worldwide or to withdraw cash at thousands of ATM's in the UAE and worldwide. Cardholders are also offered a free overdraft limit of AED 99, which enables them to withdraw their complete salaries through ATMs.
With no minimum or maximum salary requirement to qualify for a Salary Card, employees now have the option to either apply for a salary account or for a Salary Card.
The new card is most suitable for those companies that pay salaries to their employees in cash. Employers can save on the trouble of withdrawing and handling cash and the additional accounting required for cash transactions. Employees on the other hand can benefit with the secure and convenient option of receiving salaries directly on the Salary Card.
"The Salary Card offers an affordable banking solution to the employees in the low-income segment who in the past could not afford to maintain a banking relationship. ABN AMRO is delighted to be able to offer banking services to such individuals," said Karim.
Sameer Govil, Area Manger of VISA International, Middle East, said: "The ABN AMRO Visa Salary Card is a great example of the benefits that Visa brings: staff who were previously excluded will be brought into the banking system, employers will benefit from economies of scale and efficiencies, while electronic payment systems will bring greater security, convenience and flexibility than cash. It really is a win-win for all parties. We are pleased to extend our partnership with ABN AMRO with this innovation, and enable the bank to help its customers with Visa's world-leading technology."
"A number of companies were dissatisfied with their existing payroll arrangements since most banks were only willing to open salary accounts for employees in the higher income segment. This had left companies with a fragmented payroll operation. The new Salary Card from ABN AMRO will provide companies a one-stop shop for all their payroll needs," said Sachin Bountra, Vice President, Cards.
