TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) today announced
that it is being recognized by Global Finance Magazine as "Best
Consumer Internet Bank - Canada" and "Best Integrated Consumer Bank
Site - North America".
The recognition from Global Finance is based on criteria including
strength of strategy for attracting and servicing clients, success in
driving usage of online banking, and overall functionality.
"Delivering a great client experience online or through mobile devices
is essential to a client's relationship with their bank, and we are
proud to be recognized for leading in these important areas," said
Aayaz Pira, Vice President, Digital Channels, CIBC. "Our clients want
the flexibility to bank when, where, and how they want, which is why we
continue to innovate in areas such online and mobile banking."
In recent months, CIBC has been recognized with numerous awards for
excellence in the client experience. In addition to today's
announcement, CIBC was recently recognized by Forrester for the best
mobile banking offer among the Big 5 banks in Canada, and by
Pegasystems Inc. for use of their technology in the development of a
new sales and product origination platform.
CIBC's clients have been the first in Canada to benefit from a number of
innovations in retail banking in recent years. CIBC launched the first
mobile banking app in Canada in 2010, a first of its kind mobile
payments app in 2012, and most recently was first among the big 5 to
allow clients to deposit cheques using their smartphone.
Winners were chosen among only the submissions from participating
Canadian and North American banks, and evaluated by a world-class panel
of judges at Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and
outsourcing. More information is available at gfmag.com
