Nov. 13 - Grounded in a long tradition of adapting and adopting new technologies to deliver quality, banking services, Wood & Huston Bank is now positioned to better serve the banking needs of the people of Slater, Mo., and do so in a high-tech/high-touch way.
“It was 1874, when our founders, Joseph Huston, Jr. and William Wood established a Banking House in Saline County. Even at that time, our bank was quick to adapt to changes in technology, at the time it was rail transportation taking over the work of steamboats,” says Barry Randolph, president and CEO of Wood & Huston Bank. “Now with the advent of Mobile banking and smart ATMs, technology again is improving the way our banking services are delivered.” Mobile banking offers many advantages, such as security, ease of access, and convenience of banking at anytime and anywhere with numerous applications for today’s smart phones. On top of mobile banking, smart ATMs are bringing high convenience and security to automated banking anytime and anywhere. The new wave of ATMs provide simple to follow color touch-screen menus along with envelope-free deposits for both cash and checks. These new wave ATMs also provide immediate deposit verification, and enhanced image receipts along with a means of making faster and easier bank deposits, transfers of funds and withdrawals.
Barry Randolph continues, “By leveraging the latest in mobile technology and the use of smart ATM technologies, we are able to serve the banking needs of more of our customers while still providing the high degree of personalized customer service that they come to expect from Wood & Huston Bank. Our bank’s recent upgrade of smart ATM technology is now installed in the parking lot of the Akeman McBurney Medical Clinic at 430 West Front Street in Slater, Missouri. Thanks to these advancements in banking technologies, Wood & Huston Bank looks forward to continuing the 137-year tradition of serving the banking needs of the greater Slater, Missouri community.”
