- TD Canada Trust sole winner among big 5 banks in 6 categories, shares top ranking in the rest - Second major service recognition for TD Canada Trust in a week TORONTO, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust has been ranked No. 1 in customer service excellence among the top 5 banks for the fourth year in a row by global market research firm Synovate. This year's Synovate Customer Service Index (CSI) survey, conducted quarterly among a sample of 35,000 Canadians beginning in November 2007, ranked the top five banks in eleven Best Banking Awards categories. TD Canada Trust was the sole winner in six of them, and shared top ranking in the rest. "We're incredibly pleased that customers from across the country chose us as a leader in every area, and the clear winner in Customer Service Excellence. We're also excited to be the leader in all of the ways TD Canada Trust delivers that service to our customers, whether in the branch, at a Green Machine, over the phone with EasyLine, or online with EasyWeb." said Tim Hockey, Group Head Canadian Banking, President and CEO, TD Canada Trust. In November 2007, TD Canada Trust, already the hours leader among the banks in Canada, boosted service to customers with even longer hours. Now most branches coast to coast are open 62+ hours a week, including Saturdays - 50% longer than the other banks. And with almost 100 new branches in the last three years alone, Canada's "comfortable" bank is also Canada's fastest growing bank. "If we could be recognized for only one thing, we'd choose customer service every time because it's at the heart of everything we do at TD Canada Trust. This award is thanks to the huge effort TD employees make every day to provide the best customer service. It's for the expert knowledge, the can-do attitude, the good advice and all the extra miles. Winning this award for four consecutive years is a great honour and it just inspires us to keep raising the bar for our customers," added Hockey. The Synovate award comes right on the heels of another major customer service award for the bank. Late last week, J.D. Power and Associates announced that TD Canada Trust is the best in customer satisfaction among the banks for the third year in a row.
