December 3, 2013

RA’ANANA, ISRAEL, December 3, 2013 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced it has been named the winner of the 2013 Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) STAR Award for Innovation in Enabling Customer Success, Professional Services. The company received the honor on October 23rd at the Technology Services World (TSW) Service Transformations conference in Las Vegas.

NICE received this accolade for demonstrating an innovative Business Consulting model, which helps customers realize the maximum business value from the use of its products. NICE’s Professional Services’ Value Acceleration methodology is based on the premise that the solution to realizing and accelerating business value is to add support and guidance in the planning and readiness phase of a technology implementation and then leverage quick wins to ensure a long-term impact.

As a result, customer deployment times have been dramatically reduced, and business impacts are not only being measured but are being realized, in some cases in as few as four months.

“We are proud to receive this award, and credit goes to the talented men and women of the NICE Professional Services team that deliver business impact every day,” said Barak Eilam, President of NICE Americas. “It is through our people and innovative methodologies that our customers can realize true value when implementing our solutions.”

“The STAR Awards program is a long-standing honor in the technology services industry, recognizing world-class organizations that exhibit superior initiative and innovation within key disciplines of the technology services arena,” said Tom Rich, senior vice president of programs for TSIA. “NICE has clearly demonstrated its high-level dedication to delivering landmark results in the area of Innovation in Enabling Customer Success, Professional Services, and it was an honor to recognize them at our 2013 TSW Service Transformations event.”
