Bahrain-based leading fintech and electronic financial transactions service firm, Benefit has signed an agreement to provide Qualified Electronic Signature (QES) services in Bahrain via the ‘OneID’ digital ID and ‘OneBox’ digital postbox solutions of Beyon Connect.

The solutions and capabilities of both organizations will transform how Bahrainis sign documents, not only ensuring compliance but also providing a seamless digital user experience through the use of cutting-edge digital solutions.

Under the agreement, Benefit will extend its Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to integrate into the innovative OneID and OneBox solutions and services to reduce the need for the manual signing of documents, applications, and official paperwork.

The focus on ‘digital-first’ solutions is the product of a shared ambition to deliver trusted technology that simplifies the electronic signing and payment processes, increasing efficiencies through automation and lowering operating costs.
