We look forward to working with Wio to help businesses grow by instantly creating digital bank accounts without any physical paperwork or branch visits.”

Mr. Vahie, said that “As businesses evolve to become more digital-first in their approach in response to changing consumer behavior, banking operating models in the region need to mature as well. In Wio Business, we are offering a fast, easy and flexible banking solution to SMEs that helps them focus on their business and cater to their customers better. We are pleased to partner with Virtuzone to support their clientele with more seamless digital banking tools and services and further accelerate our aim to build a collaborative business banking ecosystem in the UAE.”
