First Bahrain, an innovative regional real estate developer, today announced the appointment of 4SPOTS to build the website for its warehousing project at the Bahrain Investment Wharf (BIW). 4SPOTS, a leading web design and development company, has been operating for over four years and has developed award winning websites for a wide range of prestigious companies including, MenaTelecom, Bahrain Islamic Bank, and National commercial Bank.
Upon completion, First Bahrains warehousing project will be the first of its kind in the region to offer an interactive and user-friendly website with integrated online procurement and billing systems, enabling tenants to manage their warehouse space and arrange for maintenance or shipping service in a timely and convenient manner. In addition to offering secure and cost effective storage solutions, the development will provide a boutique business centre, premium facility management services and other value-added services. These services will elevate the standard for other warehousing and logistic projects and stimulate the growth of the SME sector. Mr. Amin Al Arrayed, General Manager of First Bahrain, commented, The selection of a web consultant is actually key to our projects success, since we are breaking new ground in terms of internet booking and payment for value-added services.

Our goal is to stimulate growth in the SME sector and the website will play a key role in the support structure we are creating. Tenants will, on moving in, be able to conduct business in a more convenient and more efficient manner. We look forward to working with 4SPOTS to distinguish and differentiate our real estate developments.
