NICE Receives Award for Customer Contact Center Big Data Applications

NICE recognized by Frost & Sullivan for its full spectrum of analytics capabilities that help organizations improve the customer experience and reduce costs

RA'ANANA, Israel, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



NICE  Systems  (NASDAQ:  NICE) today announced that it is the recipient of the 2014 North America Customer Value Leadership Award for Customer Contact Center Big Data Applications. This accolade from global analyst and consultancy firm Frost & Sullivan is based on NICE's ability to help organizations deliver an exceptional customer experience across channels by leveraging its Big Data analytics solutions.

"NICE has systematically built a full spectrum of analytics capabilities that can enable organizations to effectively marry the twin goals of reducing costs and improving the customer experience," said Nancy Jamison, principal analyst, Customer Contact, Frost & Sullivan. "Furthermore, these analytics tools enable organizations to increase customer and employee engagement, which in the long run also helps increase revenue. In effect, such analytics solutions are not only able to address concerns in the contact center, but also in the back-office, throughout branch locations, and across other channels like retail, mobile, and self-service."

According to Frost & Sullivan, "the ability to combine both structured and unstructured data, mine for nuggets of insight that can be acted upon to effect change, and carry out that change, is a key differentiator for NICE." NICE offers a breadth of analytics capabilities as part of its NICE Customer Engagement Analytics platform, which allows organizations to:

  • Capture and analyze cross-channel interactions, transactions, and events;
  • Sequence events in order to understand and visualize the individual customer journeys;
  • Understand context, uncover patterns, predict customer needs, and personalize interactions; and
  • Use real-time decisioning to determine the next best action.

"Customers are engaging with their service providers via more channels than ever, and this makes it even more challenging for companies to exceed the growing demands and expectations of their customers," said Yochai Rozenblat, president of the NICE Enterprise Group. "NICE is dedicated to helping organizations gain visibility into the entire customer journey, understand the unique needs of consumers, and engage its frontline employees in order to get closer to their customers. This will enable organizations to deliver an exceptional customer experience and drive revenue growth."

The  Frost  &  Sullivan  Award  for  Customer  Value  Leadership  is  presented  each  year  to  the  company  that  has  demonstrated  excellence  in  implementing  strategies  that  proactively  create  value  for  its  customers  with  a  focus  on  improving  the  return  on  investment  (ROI)  that  customers  make  in  its  services  or  products.  Evaluation  criteria  included  technological  sophistication,  alignment  with  a  vision  and  with  market  needs,  and  flexible  application  and  deployment  options.
