TORONTO, June 8, 2023 /CNW/ - BMO has received the highest score in the J.D. Power 2023 Canada Online Banking Satisfaction Study. The study analyzes feedback from thousands of online banking customers across Canada and awarded BMO top marks in four key categories:
- Visual appeal
"It's a tremendous achievement and honour for BMO to be ranked the #1 online banking experience in Canada," said Ernie Johannson, Group Head, North American Personal and Business Banking, BMO. "We're committed to meeting our customers where they are with human and digital experiences that help them make real financial progress."
"The majority of Canadians rely on digital to manage their day-to-day finances and we continue to focus on meeting their evolving expectations with leading digital money management experiences," said Mathew Mehrotra, Chief Digital Officer, BMO. "This recognition is another example of BMO's digital-first strategy in action and a testament to our customer-centric experience and approach."
Earning this top ranking is a testament of BMO's Digital First strategy, and builds on the bank's strong track record of industry recognitions. In April 2023, the bank was recognized with two Celent Model Bank Awards, a leading research and advisory firm focused on technology for global financial institutions. In October 2022, BMO was recognized as the overall leader in The Forrester Digital Experience Review™: Canadian Mobile Banking Apps, Q4 2022.
BMO continues to pave the way in harnessing the potential of emerging technologies to drive customer and business value. Meeting customers' evolving needs and expectations have guided the bank's innovation efforts, including launches of features such as BMO's Pre-Authorized Payments Manager, Same Day Grace feature, BMO Insights, BMO CashTrack and Selfie ID.
