Augmenting digital banking operations for UAE-based SMEs

Paymentology is instrumental in enhancing the offerings of Wio Business, Wio Bank PJSC’s first digital banking application tailored to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The bank provides simplified and fully digital financial services such as issuing physical and virtual cards for SMEs, a segment that has historically relied on brick-and-mortar branches to open accounts and carry out business transactions.

Together, the companies are removing friction for long-underserved SMEs, entrepreneurs, and freelancers, enabling them to open a business account immediately, avoiding lengthy wait times, and empowering them to utilise the service almost instantly with both physical and virtual cards.

The bank’s officials said that their mission is to reboot banking in the region, and that requires partnering with like-minded companies that have the capabilities to support integrated platform banking. They are happy to collaborate with Paymentology, as they share the vision to support small and medium-sized businesses, a vital economic segment in the UAE. This partnership will enable Wio Bank to offer a comprehensive range of payment card services to Wio Business customers and gain valuable insights to better serve their needs.
