March 5, 2015

Paramus, New Jersey, March 5, 2015 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that it is the winner of three Stevie Awards for its contribution to sales, contact center and customer service operations. NICE was recognized for its ‘New Products and Services’ at a ceremony that took place in Las Vegas on February 27.

Stevie Award judges include many of the world's most respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators. Award sponsors include many leading B2B marketers, publishers, and government institutions.

Miki Migdal, President of the NICE Enterprise Product Group, said: “We are honored to receive three awards, recognizing NICE for several of our leading customer engagement solutions. Organizations can use these solutions to create the perfect experience for each individual customer, while ensuring that employees are engaged, knowledgeable and ready for every interaction. This will enable them to deliver an effortless, consistent and personalized experience throughout the customer journey, across service channels and touch points.”

NICE took home prizes in the following categories:
 
Silver Winner for IVR or Web Service Solution –
NICE IVR Journey Analytics
The solution focuses on analyzing the customer journey within the IVR channel. This enables organizations to reduce the overall call volume being passed to the contact center, drive higher IVR self-service containment rates, and provide insights in how to optimize IVR paths to speed up IVR transactions. This not only facilitates greater customer satisfaction, it also drives significant cost savings – by using the solution to increase the number of calls resolved the first time in the IVR, organizations can save millions of dollars annually.
 

Bronze Winner for Contact Center Solution –
NICE Real-Time Authentication and Fraud Prevention
The solution improves customer protection without additional service hurdles by seamlessly and automatically verifying a caller’s claimed identity and checking that the caller is not a fraudster. It enables organizations to improve the customer experience, reduce call handle time by up to 45 seconds, and cut fraud losses by 50 percent. It has already been successfully implemented in several regions.
 

Bronze Winner for Contact Center Solution –
NICE Advanced Interaction Recorder
Part of the NICE Engage Platform, the Advanced Interaction Recorder allows organizations to consolidate voice, screen and video capture from thousands of concurrent IP streams within a single platform. This dramatically reduces the total cost of ownership for NICE customers, improving the recording reliability and setting the foundation for future advanced real-time applications which will turn every contact center into a real-time engagement center.

“We are proud to recognize NICE for its customer service solutions,” said Michael Gallagher, President of the Stevie Awards.
“As a finalist and winner, NICE was handpicked based on the evaluation of 139 industry professionals. The company stands out for its continued innovation and dedication to helping its customers provide an exceptional experience for end users.”
