ANB launches prepaid petty cash card

ANB announces the launch of Cash Express, the first prepaid petty cash card in the Kingdom. Cash Express allows customers to replace their existing cash-based petty cash handling methods, with a secure and efficient electronic card-based payment option.
Cash Express cards offer businesses benefits in controlling and monitoring their petty cash related expenses. All spending activity on Cash Express cards can be viewed on ANB’s corporate electronic banking channel and can be easily replenished through standing instructions based on preset replenishment limits or through individual replenishments using the bank’s electronic channels.
Additionally, refunds from any remaining balances on Cash Express cards can be processed at any time as per instructions received from the company.
Nizar Al-Twaijiri, deputy head of corporate bank at ANB commented: “We are proud to offer this innovative payment solution that transforms traditional petty cash payments into a modern electronic prepaid card-based payment offering. Cash Express uses the latest technology for making purchases on the local POS network or withdrawing cash at any ATM in the market place. It also facilitates expense management and considerably eliminates the risks and costs associated with carrying cash or keeping cash on business premises.”
“Designated company employees receive reloadable prepaid cards, enabling company’s expense control department to exactly know how much and where spend is taking place through Cash Express card,” he said.
Cash Express is the best solution for handling petty cash expenses for all companies no matter which business segment or industry they are operating under, he added.

Entertainment hub ‘Xtreme Play’ opens in Jeddah

Xtreme Play, the newest children’s indoor games hub in Jeddah, is offering visitors never-seen-before inflatable attractions, available for the first time in the Kingdom. The family-friendly entertainment center is spread over an area of 2,500 square meters at the Sultan Mall complex on Prince Sultan Street.

Xtreme Play consists of two main sections, namely the Trampoline Main Arena and Inflatable Ninja Warriors. The Trampoline Main Arena consists of several free-jumping zones, including a dodgeball and volleyball court, trampoline basketball court, slam dunk area, and airbag jump, while the Inflatable Ninja Warriors area includes different action games, such as bouncing, jumping, climbing, dodging, foam pit, sliding, maneuvering challenge and sledding challenge. The inflatable equipment has been brought in from specialized international gaming manufacturers and is suitable for children aged six and above.

The center has three halls — all designed in an attractive modern style — that will be used for hosting birthdays parties and events, as well training sessions by instructors specialized in judo, karate, taekwondo, ballet, gymnastics and other sports.

The center is well-equipped for school trips and corporate events. It has an upper viewing lounge overlooking a park, where visitors can enjoy food and drinks. Events for adults and Ninja Warrior tournaments are also held in this area. The management has ensured that all games are completely safe and that children are not exposed to any hard surfaces, which can lead to injuries.

Khalid Souri, board member and CEO of VIM Entertainment Company, which owns Xtreme Play in Jeddah, said: “The launch of the Xtreme Play center promotes the family entertainment industry in Jeddah, and provides world-class indoor entertainment services to all ages, the likes of which are available only in the world’s finest cities.”

He added: “We aim at making the Xtreme Play visit a unique experience for all family members, as it combines entertainment and safety at the same time. We also aim to expand in the rest of the Kingdom’s cities and provinces soon.”
