BANK Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) recently introduced its latest additions to the BIBD NEXGEN universe – BIBD BizNet mobile application and QuickPay – at the TechXpo 2018, being held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Berakas.
The move is part of BIBD’s efforts to support cashless transactions.
Minister of Communications Dato Seri Setia Awang Abdul Mutalib bin Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Dato Paduka Haji Mohammad Yusof launched the two latest BIBD services at the TechXpo 2018.
