DOHA: Commercial Bank has renewed its two-year partnership with Meeza, a Qatar Foundation joint venture providing managed IT services and solutions, to provide secure, cloud-based technology solutions to the bank’s enterprise and corporate customers.
The bank’s technology solutions suite, powered by Meeza, helps SMEs and other corporations enhance their competencies by leveraging technology and developing skills and know-how required to create a world-class economic infrastructure. Through the exclusive arrangement with Meeza, any of Commercial Bank’s highly valued business customers can access a full portfolio of services and localised cloud applications available over the Internet, including creation and management of IT infrastructure, technology consulting, payroll, email, document management and web-hosting solutions.
The partnership was renewed at Commercial Bank Plaza, by Abdulla Saleh Al Raisi, CEO of Commercial Bank and Rashid Al Naimi, Chairman of Meeza.
“Commercial Bank’s partnership with Meeza provides a unique, innovative suite of technology solutions that helps put our business customers at the forefront of cultivating a diversified and sustainable Qatari economy,” said Abdulla Saleh Al Raisi, CEO of Commercial Bank. “In Qatar, SMEs and entrepreneurship are widely recognised as key drivers of employment and economic growth. Our collaboration with Meeza goes a long way to help these segments succeed.”
“After two years of fast-paced development, it is not only the most innovative but also the most experienced in Qatar for the provision of secure, cloud-based business solutions,” said Al Raisi.
During the launch, Rashid Al Naimi, Chairman of Meeza, said: “The continued market acceptance and adoption of our cloud service offering is a solid testament to the synergy between Commercial Bank and Meeza sharing the same mission. “
