Solution Enables Contact Centers in Global Organizations to Capture Customer
Intelligence, Uncover Business Trends and Optimize the Customer Experience

MELVILLE, N.Y., October 22, 2009 – VerintR Systems Inc. today announced that
its Impact 360R Workforce Optimization (WFO) software from VerintR Witness
Actionable SolutionsR is now an SAP-endorsed business solution. Comprised of
quality monitoring and recording, workforce management (WFM), performance
management and eLearning software, the solution endorsed by SAP AG is
complementary to SAPR software offerings, developed in accordance with SAP
development guidelines, and provides additional choices and flexibility for
businesses running SAP applications. Verint worked closely with SAP to
deliver out-of-the-box integration between its solutions and SAP’s,
eliminating the need for custom integration. As part of the agreement
between Verint and SAP, both companies will share technology and product

With this endorsement, Verint brings its preferred enterprise-contact center
workforce optimization software to SAP’s global customer base.

With investments in solutions from both SAP and Verint, organizations’
contact centers can take a renewed approach to customer relationships. By
leveraging the power of the SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM)
application and Verint’s Impact 360, companies can more fully enhance
customer experiences, maximize collaboration, improve customer retention and
gain access to information, as well as instill a structured customer-centric
approach to business operations and customer care.

“Verint Witness Actionable Solutions is now among an elite group of vendors
with solutions endorsed by SAP, and as such, we’re delighted to be both
building our business in new markets, while extending deeper into others
with the reach of our WFM and WFO solutions,” says John Bourne, senior vice
president, global channels and alliances, Verint Witness Actionable
Solutions. “Our organization has built its business and reputation as the
market leader in unified, analytics-driven, enterprise-enabled WFO solutions
for customer service operations. Through our SAP-endorsed business
solutions, we can make available a unique, broader set of business
applications and services designed to help companies with their focus around
and drive toward service excellence and customer centricity.”

Through a WFO strategy and solution set, organizations can run more
efficient operations, creating more loyal customers and driving more
profitable business outcomes. The software helps companies gain
unprecedented visibility into customer service processes, workforce
performance and customer intelligence. It applies actionable intelligence
from customer care operations to make better, faster decisions that impact
enterprise revenue, costs, compliance, customer loyalty and competitive
advantage. And it helps enhance employee skills, satisfaction and retention.
With Impact 360, organizations can transform customer service from a
detached business function into a strategic enterprise asset.

SAP CRM enables collaboration and provides agents with access to the
appropriate information by working in conjunction with Impact 360 Workforce
Management-part of the WFO solution or available as a stand-alone packaged
offering-which helps forecast and schedule agents with the right skills at
the right times, for example. Organizations leveraging both solutions are
better positioned to maximize their customer service improvement opportunity
and realize a more efficient ROI.

“By endorsing solutions such as Impact 360 from Verint, SAP continues to
build its ecosystem, support our customers’ businesses, drive new levels of
collaboration, and provide additional choices and flexibility to our
customers,” said Jujhar Singh, senior vice president, CRM Product Management
and Global Strategy, SAP. “The use of the endorsed solution from Verint with
SAP solutions will enable our interaction center customers to improve
productivity and accelerate delivery of innovative products to market while
lowering total cost of ownership.”
