MONETT, Mo., March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Today, the company announced that Jack Henry President & CEO David Foss will join Simmons Bank’s chief digital officer and executive vice president, Alejandro “Alex” Carriles, to share how regional and community financial institutions are competing with open and modern banking technology.
They are presenting together at Wells Fargo’s Bank and Tech Pop Up Virtual Conference on March 4. Other presenters at the conference include the head of tech/digital for Bank of America, U.S. Bancorp, KeyCorp, TD Bank, Zelle, community financial institutions and other experts from investing and consulting firms.
The presentation follows a Bank of America and J.D. Power conversation on big bank technology wins. In contrast, Foss and Carriles will discuss the success that $22.3 billion Simmons has experienced because of its progressive technology strategy. In 2020, Simmons increased its digital banking users by 30%, while earning an iOS App Store rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars. The bank has been able to pivot to meet changing customer demands thanks to the flexible technology infrastructure it has built in partnership with Jack Henry.
Foss commented, “Simmons’ digital experiences have been a strategic differentiator for the bank even before the pandemic. They were better positioned than many mega banks with a full digital suite of user-friendly functionalities and have beaten many of their KPIs such as app launch to app usable speeds. When the pandemic sent customers to digital banking in droves, Simmons became a great success story. I’m proud to join Alex in sharing how community and regional banks are leveraging technologies to compete – regardless of their size or location.”
