OIFC’s Khedmah mobile app: An asset for people of Oman

Muscat: Oman Investment and Finance Company’s Khedmah Mobile App has been exemplifying its ‘Convenience at your fingertips’ slogan with a host of services that offer easy and flexible options for customers to pay utility and PASI (Public Authority for Social Insurance) bills, recharge mobile phones and checkmeter readings.

Powered by OIFC, Khedmah App allows customers to settle their electricity, water and telecom bills from the comfort of their homes/offices, thereby enlisting their support in maintaining essential COVID-19 safety protocols. With a surge in the number of cases, it has become imperative on the part of every resident to restrict or reduce face-to-face contact in public places, especially when easy options are available online for bill payments.

With features that accentuate OIFC’s customer service standards, the Khedmah App is also easy to download and simple to use, making it a must-have app to promote the concept of a paperless payment system within the country. Developed to optimise Oman’s digitisation agenda, it is a perfect resource for like-minded users as well as those who seek hassle-free payment methods.

Highlighting the merits of operating the app, Mohammed bin Nasser Al Jabri, Customer Experience Manager at OIFC pointed out that it has been integrated as a one-stop solution for payment of monthly utility bills and recharge of mobiles. Explaining further, he said, “Customer convenience and flexibility are the keys that drive Oman Investment and Finance Company’s Khedmah Mobile App. With over 500,000 downloads since it was first launched in 2016, it has grown in scope and reach, realising our larger goal of financial inclusion. Incorporated with style, efficiency and complete security, it is, indeed, an extension of our customer service platform, wherein we cater to users from different walks of life, across the country.”

“As a popular and handy app, Khedmah helps us stay connected with our customers and build our corporate footprint. It is an extension of our structured specialization in billing, collection and debt factoring for electricity, water and telecom services in the country,” stated Al Jabri, adding that the app’s new interface would help OIFC establish the app as a unified platform with a bouquet of services catering to both nationals and residents.
