NICE increased its contact center WFO market share in 2012, according to DMG’s report

July 29, 2013

RA’ANANA, Israel, July 29, 2013 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) announced today that it has again been recognized as the worldwide leader in the contact center Workforce Optimization (WFO) market by DMG Consulting LLC. This is the third consecutive year that NICE has been positioned as the top WFO vendor. NICE has also been named the market share leader for contact center Performance Management (CCPM), with a 39.5 percent market share based on number of seats, according to the 2013 DMG Contact Center Performance Management Market Report.

In the contact center WFO segment, NICE holds a 40.2 percent market share for 2012, which is an increase from 37.9 percent in the previous year. This is based on DMG’s 2013 Workforce Optimization (Quality Management/Liability Recording) Market Share Report. According to this report, NICE also holds the leadership position in the fast-growing cloud-based WFO market. The report analyzes approximately 45 WFO vendors worldwide whose offerings include four or more of the ten modules found in WFO suites, including: quality assurance, workforce management, performance management, voice of the customer/surveying, speech analytics, text analytics, desktop analytics, coaching, eLearning, and call recording.

“NICE’s ongoing leadership in the WFO market reflects our continued innovation and ability to deliver solutions that help organizations get closer to their customers in order to provide an exceptional customer experience. Our solutions enable enterprises to help meet customer needs by better understanding the user, engaging employees, acting in real time, and closing the loop to ensure ongoing improvement in agent performance,” said Benny Einhorn, Chief Marketing Officer at NICE. “Additionally, our leadership in the cloud-based WFO market further demonstrates our commitment to our customers as we are providing them with a choice of different deployment platforms in order to help them obtain the greatest possible value from their investments.”

“2012 was a strong year for the workforce optimization market and a good year for CCPM solutions,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting. “Tighter integration of CCPM with the other WFO modules is extending the benefits and output of the modules and breaking down information silos.” DMG’s CCPM report presents an in-depth analysis of this technology segment and covers both leading and emerging vendors.

NICE’s WFO contact center suite contains all 10 modules to help their customers evaluate and improve all aspects of the customer experience: recording, coaching, e-learning, performance management, surveying, speech analytics, workforce management, desktop analytics, text analytics and a WFO back-office suite.
