At the same time, these solutions offer familiar and easy-to-use technology which lower training burdens, increase adoption, and produce improved results in overall efficiency and collaboration.”

Mr. Samer Abu Zayed, Deputy CEO of Group IT & Enterprise Programme at Jordan Ahli Bank, said, “Jordan Ahli Bank had launched a major transformation program to enable world class customer services, distinguished and efficient internal bank processes. In creating and maintaining this competitive edge, JAB decided to get into partnership relations with IT market leaders such as Microsoft.
