March 8th, 2016

Paramus, New Jersey, March 8, 2016 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) announced today that it has received four prestigious Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

NICE won three Silver Stevie® Awards in the Contact Center Solution New Version category for the following:

  • NICE Engage Platform – The NICE Engage Platform provides comprehensive omni–channel interaction recording. Designed for flexibility, it easily adapts to the unique operational requirements of any call center. In a single platform, organizations have support for thousands of concurrent IP streams: capturing, forwarding streams in real time, recording and archiving.
     
  • Journey Voice of the Customer – NICE’s Journey Voice of the Customer maps customer journeys across multiple channels and lets firms know how satisfied customers are at each touchpoint. This helps businesses prioritize which areas they should address to maximize the customer experience and their return on investment.
     
  • Robotic Automation – NICE’s solution automates routine back office processes that do not require human thought or involvement. From start to finish, it automates all of the steps needed to perform any task, eliminating the need for manual intervention. By automating desktop activities, employees are freed up to focus on more sophisticated processes.
     ​

NICE’s Sales Performance Management Suite also took home a Bronze Stevie® in the Incentive Management Solution category. The suite provides the end-to-end ability to create, manage and distribute all aspects of a commissions program. It automates the process of commission, bonus, and incentive administration in support of any type of variable pay strategy to deliver a pay-for-performance system that rewards employees for achieving targets that align with business strategy.

The 10th Annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top sales awards, business development awards, contact center awards, and customer service awards. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 115 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. More than 60 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging earlier this month.

“Entries to the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continue to grow every year, further validating the essential roles that business development, customer service, and sales play in business success,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie® Awards. “The widespread support of this program made the 2016 competition that much more intense among finalists. The judges were deeply impressed by the winner’s accomplishments and we congratulate all of the winners on their commitment to excellence and innovation.”

“We are honored to have received four Stevie Awards in recognition of our leading customer engagement solutions,” said Miki Migdal, President of the NICE Enterprise Product Group. “NICE is committed to providing organizations with all the tools and information they need to create outstanding customer experiences and to make sure their employees are fully engaged, informed and prepared for every interaction.
