RA’ANANA, Israel, July 29, 2013 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) announced
today that it has again been recognized as the worldwide leader in the
contact center Workforce Optimization (WFO) market by DMG Consulting LLC.
This is the third consecutive year that NICE has been positioned as the top
WFO vendor. NICE has also been named the market share leader for contact
center Performance Management (CCPM), with a 39.5 percent market share based
on number of seats, according to the 2013 DMG Contact Center Performance
Management Market Report.

In the contact center WFO segment, NICE holds a 40.2 percent market share
for 2012, which is an increase from 37.9 percent in the previous year. This
is based on DMG’s 2013 Workforce Optimization (Quality Management/Liability
Recording) Market Share Report. According to this report, NICE also holds
the leadership position in the fast-growing cloud-based WFO market. The
report analyzes approximately 45 WFO vendors worldwide whose offerings
include four or more of the ten modules found in WFO suites, including:
quality assurance, workforce management, performance management, voice of
the customer/surveying, speech analytics, text analytics, desktop analytics,
coaching, eLearning, and call recording.

“NICE’s ongoing leadership in the WFO market reflects our continued
innovation and ability to deliver solutions that help organizations get
closer to their customers in order to provide an exceptional customer
experience. Our solutions enable enterprises to help meet customer needs by
better understanding the user, engaging employees, acting in real time, and
closing the loop to ensure ongoing improvement in agent performance,” said
Benny Einhorn, Chief Marketing Officer at NICE. “Additionally, our
leadership in the cloud-based WFO market further demonstrates our commitment
to our customers as we are providing them with a choice of different
deployment platforms in order to help them obtain the greatest possible
value from their investments.”

“2012 was a strong year for the workforce optimization market and a good
year for CCPM solutions,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting.
“Tighter integration of CCPM with the other WFO modules is extending the
benefits and output of the modules and breaking down information silos.”
DMG’s CCPM report presents an in-depth analysis of this technology segment
and covers both leading and emerging vendors.

NICE’s WFO contact center suite contains all 10 modules to help their
customers evaluate and improve all aspects of the customer experience:
recording, coaching, e-learning, performance management, surveying, speech
analytics, workforce management, desktop analytics, text analytics and a WFO
back-office suite.
