The alliance between Pos Malaysia and Maybank will scale up the bank’s initiatives to provide banking services to a larger base of customers, especially the underserved segment in the rural areas particularly in Sabah and Sarawak, by leveraging on the vast and extensive reach of Pos Malaysia’s outlets.
The Shared Banking Services is in line with Pos Malaysia’s effort to offer an array of products and services by capitalising on its wide reach for the convenience of customers from all walks of life.
"Pos Malaysia is always looking for opportunities to expand the range of products and services offered at our post office counters especially those that can provide convenience to our customers such as the Shared Banking Services with Maybank. It is certainly a win-win situation not only for both companies but most importantly our valued customers. The strategic partnership also reflects Maybank’s trust and confidence in Pos Malaysia," said Dato’ Syed Faisal Albar, Group Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.
Dato' Sri Abdul Wahid Omar, Maybank President & CEO said, “the collaboration reaffirms Maybank’s market leadership and capabilities to offer services to all communities. It reinforces our corporate social responsibility and focus on supporting communities especially in the rural areas. It is about providing access to financial services and to improve quality of life of the community as well as contribute to the development of the people where we have our presence.”
“The initiative is also in line with Maybank’s spirit in humanizing financial services from the heart of ASEAN by providing easy access to financial service for the people, as well as providing them with a fair term and pricing and for us to be the heart of the community,” he added.
The three phase implementation programme will see Pos Malaysia selected outlets offer Maybank customers to undertake over the counter bank transactions such as cash deposit and withdrawal for savings account holders and loan repayments in the initial stage.
An ATM machine is also provided at selected Pos Malaysia outlets to offer banking convenience beyond banking hours as well as additional services such as fund transfer, top-up of mobile credits or 'Touch 'n Go' card. "By end June 2011, Pos Malaysia services will expand to cover remittance service and opening of savings account," Dato' Sri Abdul Wahid said.
