Kalaam Telecom Appoints BBK as Cash Management Partner

Bahrain-based Kalaam Telecom, a voice and data services provider, has appointed BBK, a commercial and retail bank, as its cash management partner. The aim is to accelerate Kalaam’s receivables through accepting bill payments of its corporate clients over-the-counter in all BBK financial malls and branches, allowing easy access to its customers through its wide presence across the country.

“We selected BBK for its demonstrated comprehensive cash management suite of services for corporate, which compliments Kalaam’s existing and potential customer base,” said Veer Passi, acting chief operating officer (COO) and chief financial officer (CFO) of Kalaam Telecom. “We believe BBK’s branch network combined with the cash management solution offers our customers additional locations to settle their bill payments and simultaneously accelerates our receivables.

“Now in our fifth year of operations, Kalaam strives to enhance our customer’s experience by providing hassle-free payment options to make post-paid bill payments easier,” continued Passi. “We also offer multiple payment modes including an easy-to-pay online payment option on Kalaam’s website wherein all our corporate clients can login to their account and pay their bills through a simple customer-friendly interface.”
