QNB recently organised a briefing workshop about QNB-Simplify e-commerce, an innovative cloud-based platform that allows merchants to create their online shop.

Organised in collaboration with Mastercard, the global leading technology and payments provider and the platform’s technology partner, the event brought together more than 150 entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Qatar, reflecting QNB’s keenness to promote this platform, which was launched earlier this year in co-operation with the Ministry of Transport and Communications.

This event took place within the framework of QNB’s efforts to introduce its new platform aimed at promoting digital transformation, excellence in entrepreneurship and innovation in all sectors, while supporting the ongoing efforts to achieve sustainable economic development as an essential part of the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030.

The workshop included live demonstrations and presentations of the successful journeys of the participating entrepreneurs and SMEs in the use of this platform, the first of its kind in Qatar.

The event gave major opportunities to introduce ‘QNB-Simplify’ platform as an end-to-end e-commerce solution that allows any registered business to take their products online without any technology infrastructure or technical expertise, easily and quickly — with no upfront cost and contribute in promoting digital innovation and competitiveness in the Qatari market.

The group’s presence through its subsidiaries and associate companies now extends to more than 31 countries across three continents, providing a comprehensive range of advanced products and services. The total number of employees is around 29,000, operating through more than 1,200 locations, with an ATM network of more than 4,300 machines.
