Batelco Bahrain launches first digital postbox in ME

Beyon Connect, a subsidiary of Bahrain's operator Batelco, has launched OneBox, as the first country in the Middle East to deliver digital postbox services.

According to a statement from Bahrain Telecommunication Company, the new digital postbox enables direct communication for residents with private sector businesses as well as public sector entities in the MENA region.

“As more public and private sector entities become integrated with OneBox, customers will be able to receive important documents like salary slips, health results, contracts, bank statements, utility bills, etc., all in one secure, convenient, and trusted digital space,” a statement read.

The solution is fully sender and receiver validated, guaranteeing spam-free secure distribution. OneBox helps streamline everyday digital communication and complies with global personal data protection, said the statement.

OneBox has been developed in partnership with the Danish company e-Boks, a long-term provider of user-friendly secure platforms for digital communication. e-Boks is used by both private individuals and companies, and more than 5 million people and 600,000 companies in Denmark use the platform.

Christian Rasmussen, CEO of Beyon Connect said: “We see the launch of OneBox as an important stepping stone on our journey towards creating a more digitally inclusive society in Bahrain. OneBox delivers unique transformational value to the people, institutions, and businesses of Bahrain and removes communication barriers between all users through a user-friendly, secure and simple platform.”
