Al-Arafah Islami Bank is now online. The Bangladeshi bank adopted Ababil, the Shariah compliant centralized banking solution by Millennium Information Solutions to achieve this. A number of the bank’s branches have already executed its online operations, with a total of 22 out of 46 having implemented the software to date. ATM, POS, SMS, phone and internet banking will be available via real-time delivery channels with the system. Ababil is set to be fully integrated into Al Arafah’s system in the coming months. Al Arafah’s Shariah-based, centralized and online system is the first to utilize locally developed software in Bangladesh.
