(NASDAQ: NICE),the worldwide leader of intent-based solutions that extract insight to impact business performance, reduce financial risk and ensure safety and security, today announced that it has received the Customer Value Enhancement of the Year Award, North America 2011 from analyst firm Frost & Sullivan. The Award is presented each year by Frost & Sullivan to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value and help improve the return on investment for its customers. It is a recognition of NICE’s accomplishments in Contact Center Real-time Decisioning and Agent Guidance.
Keith Dawson, principal analyst at analyst firm Frost & Sullivansaid, “With NICE’s real-time decisioning capabilities agents no longer have to ‘duck out’ of an application to open a new program to find customer data, or decide whether a particular offer is right for a customer. The NICE solution facilitates the automation of those processes. With real-time guidance it also presents agents with personalized next-best-action instructions on how to handle specific issues - or opportunities - as they come up.Furthermore, the NICE approach is notably different from other Real-time Decisioning providers in that it enables a variety of information to be pushed to the agent's attention during an interaction, including details of cross-channel communications that have happened before the current call. This is a key element involved in making the agent's process through an interaction more consistent.”
Dawson also noted, “This approach is the hallmark of enhanced customer value: perfecting and institutionalizing best practices. As such, NICE Systems’ capabilities for real-time decision-making, and approach to the contact center real-time decisioning market earns the company the North America 2011 Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Enhancement of the Year Award.”
Udi Ziv, President of the NICE Enterprise Group, said “We are pleased to be presented with this award from Frost & Sullivan, reflecting the unique value we provide our customers with our real-time solutions delivering a real-time impact on customer experience and business success.”
