Classic Mobile App Set to Retire

Wednesday, July 18 at 09:00 AM
Category: Arvest News

Now is the time to Arvest Go.

Arvest Classic—our first mobile banking app—will no longer work beginning fall 2018. We removed the app from the app stores on July 12, 2018 in anticipation of this upcoming change.

Why is This Happening?

The vendor that supports our Classic mobile app has made the decision to stop its support and maintenance of this product for our customers.

Although the app is no longer supported by the vendor, it should continue working until the disconnect date in fall 2018 unless it is deleted from the device. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may have caused.

New Mobile Banking App Available

Logging in and using our new mobile banking app, Arvest Go, is easy. Arvest Go has all the best features of Classic plus several enhancements, such as fingerprint login and an optimized mobile check deposit experience.

To get started, simply download the free Arvest Go app on your iPhone®* or Android™* device and sign in using your current Classic online banking login ID and password. After successfully logging in to Arvest Go, be sure to delete the Arvest Classic app from your device.

Ensure you are running the most current OS for an optimal experience with Arvest Go. The Arvest Go app requires at least Apple iOS 9 or Android 5 Lollipop to run.

We make frequent updates to Arvest Go based on the newest technology trends and feedback from our customers. We are excited to bring you the best we have to offer in mobile banking.

Browser-only Banking

The Classic mobile web banking service will also retire this fall, but mobile web banking will not go away. The look and feel of your experience will change.

Mobile Web BlueIQ™ accessed through your device’s browser will feature standard online banking and bill payment functions as well as easy-to-use personal money management tools.

To enjoy an optimal banking experience on your iPad®, please use Online Banking with BlueIQ™, accessed easily through your tablet’s browser. Our replacement mobile app, Arvest Go, is not currently configured for iPad viewing and usage.

Arvest Bank has promoted Mike Willard to president and CEO of the bank’s North Central Arkansas and West Plains, Missouri region, effective July 1.

Willard currently is the president and CEO of Arvest Bank’s Prairie Grove market in Northwest Arkansas. During his 15-year career with Arvest Bank, Willard also served as consumer loan officer, commercial loan officer and community bank president in Mountain Home, Ark. from 2010-2013.

He currently is a member of the Arkansas Economics Advisory Board and has served on the board of directors for the Baxter Regional Medical Center Foundation, Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce, Mountain Home Education Foundation, Mountain Home Rotary Club and Performing Arts Council for Arkansas State University Mountain Home, in addition to leadership roles with other organizations.

“Mike’s previous work and compassion for the North Central Arkansas community make his return to this area a perfect fit,” said Don Walker, regional executive for Arvest Bank. “He was very invested in the surrounding communities and in serving our customers and local businesses, so I’m sure he’s looking forward to this opportunity.”

Willard earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Okla. He is a graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Banking.

Willard succeeds Tom Dame who recently accepted an executive leadership position in Arvest’s Springfield, Mo. market.

“Tom has been an exceptional leader in this market for many years and our customers and associates have benefitted from his experience and leadership,” said Walker. “We are fortunate to be able to utilize Tom’s experience in our Springfield market and name a successor who also had expertise in North Central Arkansas. We thank Tom for his great work here and wish him continued success in our sister territory.”

Dame’s history with Arvest began in 2000 when he joined the bank at Yellville. He has served as president and CEO of the North Central Arkansas market since 2014.
