São Paulo, September 17, 2014 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that it is the winner of two Customer Service Excellence Awards – for Intelligent Analytics and Digital Recording – which it received at the 2014 National Congress of the Company-Customer Relations (CONAREC 2014) that took place September 9-10.

Award winners were selected based on a study conducted by Grupo Padrão (Brazilian Sector Overview Customer Relations 2014).

“Delivering excellent customer service is a top priority across all sectors in Brazil. Yet, consumers are demanding more and more from their service providers – they want companies to engage with them on the channels they choose, and at the time and place that is most convenient to them. Our study pinpointed the challenges still facing organizations today and also gave us the opportunity to highlight the companies that have succeeded in delivering innovative solutions to help organizations exceed customer expectations.”

NICE’s broad portfolio of real-time analytics solutions includes Real-Time Speech Analytics, Real-Time Authentication, NICE Fizzback, and NICE Customer Engagement Analytics. The company recently introduced to the market its new NICE Engage Platform, a next-generation capture platform which allows organizations to incorporate real-time interaction data and analytics, at scale, into all of their service processes.
