The world is slowly opening up again, and that means many businesses will resume their  operations. This will lead to businesses trading internationally again and with that, the need for foreign exchange will arise.

Dealing with foreign exchange in itself can be a hassle sometimes. And if you’re a business owner, ideally, you would  want to choose the most effective way of getting something done—especially when it comes to payments. So, if at present you’re having trouble with booking foreign exchange contracts seamlessly, this article is for you.

Say hello to BizChannel@CIMB!

If you already have a BizChannel account with CIMB (better known as BizChannel @CIMB), you would know that it is a one-stop solution for all your business needs: you can transfer funds, retrieve account statements, manage payments & payroll. It is one of the many ways CIMB is able  to help SMEs in Malaysia to be more efficient operationally.

Besides all of the above, BizChannel@CIMB also allows businesses to book foreign exchange contracts digitally—provided they have a Booker FX role access granted in  the account. All this while, in order to get this feature, you’ll need to manually sign up for the Booker role. 

For now, if you’re under the Customised Package, you’ll need to be granted access by the System Administrator. And if you have the Lite/Standard Package, you’ll need to fill up the BizChannel@CIMB Maintenance Form.

But, this will change.


Booking foreign exchange contracts made easy

CIMB wants to make your life as a business owner better. Hence, the booker role is now readily available and you may either sign up for the booker role in your existing BizChannel package or contact our Helpdesk to add this to your package.

With this change, you will be able to book foreign exchange contracts easily as well as make  foreign exchange payments fuss-free. Some other perks of this feature include but are not limited to:

  • the ability to monitor real time foreign exchange rates
  • locking your desired foreign exchange rates easily
  • being able to make payments on the same day 

Sounds good? It sure does!
