Ra’anana, Israel, April 6, 2015 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that for the eighth consecutive year, it has been recognized as the contact center workforce management (WFM) market leader by DMG Consulting LLC.

In DMG’s 2015 Contact Center Workforce Management Report, NICE is recognized as having the largest market share based on number of seats, with a 23.7 percent share. NICE achieved an impressive 14.8 percent increase in number of seats in 2014. In addition, NICE received the top ranking for Product Satisfaction, based on vendor average, with a score of 4.33 out of 5. This ranking is significant as the results were derived directly from DMG facilitated customer surveys.

It also engages employees by giving them performance data to motivate the ‘right’ behaviors and results,” said Donna Fluss, president of DMG Consulting. “WFM is in the process of transforming into an engagement tool that can help drive high levels of agent productivity, satisfaction, and retention, while improving quality and reducing the cost of service.”
