Arvest Expanding Services
Arvest Bank is introducing new services to customers in the Tulsa area, including seven-day banking at select locations and extended deposit at all Tulsa branches.
The bank expects to have all six Tulsa branches banking on Sundays from 1-5 p.m.
In addition, Arvest opened three branches in Wal-Mart Supercenters Feb. 10 in Owasso, Broken Arrow and Sand Springs.
“We tested Sunday banking with the first two branches and customer response was fantastic,” says Don Walker, president and CEO of Arvest Bank in Tulsa. “We know many people shop Sunday afternoons, so we decided to take banking to them by opening in the Wal-Mart Supercenters.”
Additionally, Arvest is extending deposit posting hours to 7 p.m. When customers make a deposit before 7 p.m., the deposit will post that day.
Arvest is also offering remote deposit capture, which allows businesses to send check deposits to the bank remotely. They scan their checks and ship. Businesses simply convert paper checking into electronic images, which have the same legal standing as physical checks. They then deposit the scanned checks online, enabling funds to more quickly move from the check originator’s account to the depositor’s account.
Fayetteville, Ark.-based Arvest Bank, with a total of $9.5 billion, operates more than 210 branches in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas through a network of 16 locally managed community banks.
