Mashreq Qatar, the leading financial institution in the Middle East & North Africa, has opened its branch & Head Office at Doha’s C-Ring Road.

Mashreq’s E-Cube retail concept offers customers smart banking services using interactive electronic devices. The inauguration was done by Mariam Al Muhannadi, Branch Manager, in the presence of prominent Qatari customers and senior management of Mashreq. Head of Retail Banking, Niranjan Mendonca, said:

For the first time in Qatar, our award winning E-Cube branch is providing customers with new age banking. We continue to explore new ways to delight our customers with innovative banking solutions coupled with an atmosphere that provides the latest technology to keep our customers engaged. In addition to regular branch transactions, customers can use the e-kiosk to have a video chat with a customer service representative, 24×7. This is also our first disabled-friendly branch location, with a dedicated wheelchair access ramp and suitably configured ATMs and electronic interfaces.’

Upon entering the branch, customers are greeted by a 75” exterior attractor screen, which they can physically interact with using motion detection technology to explore Mashreq’s wide range of products & services using.

The E-Cube branch is also environmentally friendly offering customers a paperless processing experience – they will no longer have to fill out forms to conduct day to day branch banking transactions. Dedicated Mashreq Gold and Business Banking Relationship Managers are also available in the branch.
