“DMG continues to be bullish on the WFO market because these vendors are not
just sitting back and enjoying their success. This is a group of vendors
that is willing to work with customers to build features to improve the
customer experience. So, although the suite name is workforce optimization,
these vendors provide functionality that works in many ways to empower
companies to improve both the customer and employee experience while
reducing operating costs.”

‘leaders’ quadrant is a testament to NICE’s completeness of vision in the
WFO domain. We believe it also reinforces our innovations in analytics,
real-time insights, gamification and other advanced technologies, and our
ability to deliver these on premise or via cloud. The bottom line is a more
engaged and customer-centric workforce, which lets organizations get closer
to their customers in order to provide an exceptional customer experience.”
