Aljazira Capital develops online trading system

Aljazira Capital has announced the development of an electronic trading system (TADAWULCOM) in response to the high-tech surge in the realm of global investment. Stock market traders are now able to run their dealings faster and easier after Aljazira Capital’s adoption of the slogan: “Trading with one Touch.” The company explains that there is no longer any need for the keyboard since the system enables clients — only with one touch and in few seconds — to make transactions, follow market news and investment portfolios, using PCs, smart phones or tablets. It will also render clients additional benefits and options, representing a breakthrough in informatics.
Aljazira Capital’s CEO and Managing Director, Ziad Aba-Alkhail, said the new electronic platform has the advantage of using HTML5 system that provides faster and smoother trading in stock market without uploading additional applications such as JAVA, because the system works automatically with one touch, allowing the investor to get all what he needs, and browse the information and statements of his own home page on the program screen.
He noted how the new platform has the distinguishing features and advantages of all types of touch screens, in addition to its high responsiveness and analytical services.
He said that enhancing the capacity of Aljazira Capital portal is consistent with the company’s policy that seeks tirelessly to keep abreast of the world’s latest systems as well as provide new channels for trading in local and international markets, bearing in mind that the company holds the largest share of trading in Saudi capital market, being 18.74 percent of online trading, according to 2016 reports.
He said: “In Aljazira capital, we seek to save money and time of our clients, using the latest technology to fulfil their needs and ambitions. We work hard toward securing more privacy, faster and smoother trading through Aljazira capital’s electronic platform.”
He said: “We believe our excellence and pilot role in providing online trading services are the main factors behind the successful investments reaped by our clients every day. Our website allows clients to buy and sell local shares, and browse market news and investments portfolios online... In addition, our unique service allows users to easily sell and buy, online, Gulf and global shares from US, UAE and Doha markets.”
“Global” has the advantage of easy use, attractive commissions, distinguished services, and full technical support.
Aba-Alkhail highlighted the possibility of entering, updating and canceling orders online, in addition to inquiring about the orders previously entered. He also referred to the advantage of browsing share prices, market news, purchase power, and investment portfolios through one screen, including all investor’s needs, where trading is done with unprecedented flexibility and full privacy of client’s personal information and activities, not to mention the immediate technical support offered by a specialist and well-qualified staff through smart phones and e-mails.

Careem honors outstanding captains in Riyadh

Careem held the first edition of its Captain’s Excellence Award Ceremony in Riyadh on Saturday. The event, which will be held annually, was the first-of-its-kind in the region and welcomed over 300 top-performing “captains” (Careem drivers) across the Kingdom. 

The captains were awarded based on different criteria such as: Captains with the highest number of trips, highest (customer-given) ratings and longest serving captains. Rewards were also handed out to captain ambassadors, i.e. those with the highest number of referrals and captains that were given a special shoutout on social media by customers for their dedication to their service. Several rewards were handed out along with the grand prize, a brand new car. 

Abdulla Elyas, chief people officer and co-founder of Careem, opened the event with an ode to the captains in attendance, thanking them for their service and commitment in driving impact through meaningful initiatives across the Kingdom. Some of these initiatives included the vaccination campaign in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, which helped more than 100,000 men, women and children across 17 cities get vaccinated in their own homes. Careem also collaborated with Bupa Arabia during Ramadan this year to donate clothes from customers to people in need, where over 180,000 donations were collected. 

Elyas also announced Careem’s partnership with Alwaleed Philanthropies (AP) in delivering the first installment of cars for the empowerment of people with special needs. The foundation, chaired by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, will provide a number of cars over the course of seven years to men and women of the Society for Physically Disabled Adults (Harakia) after being trained.

“Our captains are the lifeblood of our business and we wanted to celebrate these men and women for helping us achieve our mission of simplifying and improving the lives of people in the Kingdom,” Elyas said. 

“We are proud to have 395,000 ‘captainahs’ (female drivers) and captains registered with us to date in Saudi Arabia, providing over 122 million rides. This ceremony is our small way to thank them for their service and reward them for the hard work they put in every day so that people have a safe way to get around. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today” 

Muaaed Al-Saeed, a representative from the Public Transport Authority (PTA), said: “We are excited to have you all; you have overcome each obstacle you were faced with in a short span of time and for that we are extremely proud.” 

He added: “On this occasion, I convey the regards of PTA President Dr. Rumaih Al-Rumaih. The participation of myself and Majed Al-Zahrani, PTA general manager, is proof of our support to all the captains.”
