TROY, MI--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - Proctor Financial, Inc. (PFI) is proud to announce that it recently placed in the Top 50 in BenchmarkPortal's Top 100 Call Center Award for 2013. Receiving this designation is a testament to PFI's management and employee dedication to balancing effectiveness and efficiency in operations resulting in exceptional call center service for PFI's clients and their borrowers.

"The Proctor Financial call center is among the best in its industry. This award was granted on the basis of objective, metrics-driven performance. PFI stood tall against its competitors according to the world's largest database of call center metrics.
