First Arkansas Bank & Trust (FAB&T) of Jacksonville, Arkansas has joined forces with IBT to improve and expand its digital offering.
Under the arrangements, First Arkansas Bank & Trust will deploy IBT’s mobile, online banking as well as bill payment channels.
IBT claims that its fully integrated digital banking channels will help the bank offer simple and improved digital banking experience, and help it tailor its message and digital presence to the community it caters to.
Commenting on the partnership, FAB&T senior VP and director of retail banking Larry Daniel said: "IBT’s superior customer-facing system and applications will allow our customers to access their accounts reliably, anytime and from any device.
"IBT’s business philosophy is in direct alignment with our bank’s core beliefs. The leadership of FAB&T believes that the ‘IBT Difference’ will not only help us survive in this ever-changing and competitive marketplace, but to thrive!"
