October 26th, 2016

Paramus, New Jersey, October 26, 2016 – NICE (Nasdaq:NICE) announced today that it has again been acknowledged by DMG Consulting LLC as the worldwide leader in the contact center Workforce Optimization (WFO) market. According to DMG’s 2016 WFO Mid-Year Market Share Report, NICE holds a 41.5 and 41.1 percent market share in the contact center WFO and contact center voice recording segments, respectively.

NICE WFO is comprised of tightly integrated solutions, enabling organizations to improve agent productivity, identify performance gaps, deliver targeted coaching, effectively forecast workloads, and schedule staff. NICE’s unique Adaptive WFO approach uses analytics-based modeling to dynamically personalize contact center processes, such as scheduling, coaching, training, evaluations and motivational incentives, based on the individual agent persona level.

“We are proud of our success in further expanding our market share, as customers have embraced our vision for employee engagement and Adaptive WFO,” said Miki Migdal, President of the NICE Enterprise Product Group. “We will continue to innovate and lead the market in the area of workforce optimization as we recognize the dynamics shaping the performance, experience and expectations of both the workforce and consumers.”

“The contact center WFO market is at a critical juncture. Instead of focusing on agent performance, analytics is playing an increasingly important role throughout WFO suites, providing insights into customer needs and wants,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting.

This report analyzed 42 WFO vendors worldwide who offered a suite of contact center WFO solutions during the first half of 2016 including workforce management, contact center performance management, speech analytics, text analytics, desktop analytics, enterprise feedback management/surveying, eLearning, coaching, gamification and customer journey analytics. To be considered a WFO suite provider, a vendor must offer recording and quality assurance/quality management and at least two of the other applications. NICE’s WFO contact center suite offers all 12 of these modules as well as a WFO back-office suite to help organizations assess and enhance all aspects of the customer service experience.
