Company Recognized by Gartner for Its Completeness of Vision and Ability to
Execute

MELVILLE, N.Y., October 16, 2009 – VerintR Systems Inc. today announced its
position in the Leaders Quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Contact Center
Workforce Optimization,”[2] an October 12, 2009 report written by Research
Director Jim Davies of research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc.

According to Gartner, those in the Leaders Quadrant “provide broad and deep
WFO [workforce optimization] software portfolios that can be deployed and
supported globally. They are suitable for all sizes and complexities of
enterprises and have broad industry coverage. Revenues are strong, and new
references are readily available.” The report positions Contact Center WFO
providers in one of four quadrants based on an evaluation of their
completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“Increased organizational awareness surrounding the value proposition
associated with WFO, combined with an expanding set of viable vendors, is
fueling market adoption,” the report explains. Gartner estimates that WFO
is “fairing well in the current recession due to the impact it can have on
the customer experience and operational efficiency.”

The firm defines WFO products as those that “combine technologies from many
previously siloed functional domains. The key functional domains include WFM
and strategic planning, call recording and QM, coaching and e-learning,
performance management, surveying (focused on capturing operational and
agent performance information), and interaction analytics (speech analytics
combined with screen analytics, emotion detection and associated operational
call data).” It highlights the “benefits of an integrated solution that
enables information, insights, workflow and core contact center functions to
be melded so that they complement and align with the business’s high-level
strategy.”

“The next-generation Impact 360 suite is continuing to redefine the
landscape for workforce optimization software,” says Elan Moriah, president,
VerintR Witness Actionable SolutionsR and VerintR Video Intelligence
SolutionsT. “We believe Gartner’s positioning of Verint in the leaders
quadrant is an example of our unparalleled commitment to WFO both in the
contact center and enterprise-wide. Our unified, analytics-driven software
is used by thousands of customers worldwide to capture customer
intelligence, uncover business trends, discover the root cause of employee
and customer behavior, and optimize the customer experience.”
