Simmons Bank launched a new mobile app, developed in collaboration with Jack Henry’s Banno software and led by newly recruited Alejandro “Alex” Carriles, Simmons’ executive vice president and chief digital officer.

The launch is part of Simmons’ Next Generation Bank initiative, a multi-year project that represents a $100 million technology investment. The launch was made Oct. 16, according to a news release.

Users won’t be forced to upgrade to the new app immediately. They will be invited to do so over a monthlong period, according to the release.

The app is available at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Details:
