NICE also receives top marks for customer satisfaction

RA’ANANA, Israel, June 24, 2013 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today
announced that it has once again been recognized as the contact center
workforce management market leader by DMG Consulting LLC, with a market
share of 22 percent, based on the number of seats. For six consecutive years
NICE has been the market share leader according to DMG’s Contact Center
Workforce Management reports.

According to DMG’s 2013 Contact Center Workforce Management Market Report,
NICE was ranked for the second consecutive year as the top vendor for
customer satisfaction across ten categories measuring vendor satisfaction:
product, implementation, service and maintenance, training, professional
services, innovation, responsiveness to product enhancement requests,
communication, pricing, and overall vendor satisfaction. Among individual
components of the product category, NICE achieved a top score in 15 out of
19 categories. In the implementation and professional services categories,
NICE achieved a perfect score.

“Today’s contact centers are handling more channels than ever before,
including calls, emails, chat, short message service (SMS), social media and
possibly some non-call activities, ” explained Donna Fluss, President of DMG
Consulting. “WFM challenges include handling complex work rules and
scheduling requirements (multi-national environments, multiple languages,
time zones, at-home agents, outsourced agents, flexible shifts, etc.).
Companies increasingly need long-term planning and budgeting functionality
to plan agent staffing needs for anywhere from one to five years into the
future.”

To address the needs of today’s complex multi-site, multi-skill and
multi-channel call centers, NICE IEX Workforce Management solutions offer
the flexibility and rich set of capabilities to forecast staffing needs,
schedule representatives’ time, effectively manage daily activity, and boost
inbound sales revenue.

“We are pleased to once again be recognized as a leader in DMG’s 2013
Contact Center Workforce Management Market Report,” said Benny Einhorn,
Chief Marketing Officer at NICE. “Achieving top vendor status for product
satisfaction as well as receiving top scores for our implementations and
professional services is a testament of our commitment to providing
customers with flexible and comprehensive workforce management solutions and
services that can be adapted to their particular business environment. As
the complexity of today’s contact centers continue to grow, we are enabling
our customers to successfully meet their service objectives.”
