Paramus, NJ, March 7, 2016​ – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) announced today that it has again been acknowledged by DMG Consulting LLC as the worldwide leader in the Workforce Management (WFM) market, with a 24.6 percent market share, further extending its lead over competitors. NICE was also recognized for high customer satisfaction overall, achieving a perfect score in the area of current product.

“2015 was the best year in decades for the WFM market, and 2016 is looking even better,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting. “The momentum in the WFM market is being fueled by back-office implementations and a replacement cycle in contact centers. While WFM remains the most important productivity tool in contact centers, the needs and expectations of the Millennial generation are forcing managers to reconsider their approaches to staffing and scheduling. The market needs new solutions that are designed to optimize employee choice, increase schedule flexibility, and promote agent empowerment, in order to help enterprises create a compelling workplace.”
