Standardization of Bank POI names

Postby antyong (retired) » Sun Oct 26, 2008 2:47 pm

Guys, time to standardize our bank POI names.

My proposal:
Actual Name == POI Name

Affin Bank == Affin Bank <place name>
Alliance Bank == Alliance Bank <place name>
AmBank == Ambank <place name>
Bank Islam == Bank Islam <place name>
Bank Muamalat == Bank Muamalat <place name>
Bank Rakyat == Bank Rakyat <place name>
Bank Pertanian Malaysia == Bank Pertanian <place name>
Bank Simpanan Nasional == BSN <place name>
CIMB Bank == CIMB <place name>
Citibank == Citibank <place name>
Deutsche Bank == Deutsche Bank <place name>
EON Bank == EON Bank <place name>
Hong Leong Bank == Hong Leong Bank <place name>
Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank == HSBC <place name>
Maybank == Maybank <place name>
OCBC Bank == OCBC <place name>
Public Bank == Public Bank <place name>
RHB Bank == RHB <place name>
Standard Chartered Bank == StanChart <place name>
United Overseas Bank == UOB <place name>
Al Rajhi Bank == Al Rajhi Bank <place name>

Basically, we use the name most often associated with the bank. I need feedback from ALL of you if possible :D

Actually, the standardization of the bank name is the important part. 8-)

When searching for Maybank ATMs I see our MFM 1.15 have ...
(1) Mbb <placename>
(2) Mbb@Petronas <placename>
(3) Maybank <placename>
(4) Maybank ATM@Shell <placename>

I don't have objection to the <bankname>s proposed by Ant, but I suggest we include the variation for ATM within petrol stations ...
(a) <bankname> <placename>
(b) <bankname>@<petrolstation> <placename>
4SQ, Waze, GMM, MSM, MFM & OSM ;-}

May I suggest using Chartered Bank instead of StanChart?

Because in chinese word for Standard Chartered Bank is 渣打銀行, which is "Chartered Bank" only. :mrgreen:

Is SCB a common abbreviation for Standard Chartered bank in SG? If yes, then let's use SCB :)
