Ra’anana, Israel, August 13, 2014 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that it has once again been recognized as the speech analytics market leader by DMG Consulting LLC. In DMG’s 2014 -2015 Speech Analytics Product and Market Report, NICE is noted as having the largest market share based on number of seats. This is the sixth consecutive year that NICE has been the market share leader based on DMG’s report. NICE holds a 30 percent market share as of December 2013, based on the number of seats. NICE also has the largest number of customers (p. 167).
NICE Interaction Analytics has recently been bolstered by the launch of the NICE Engage Platform, the company’s next generation capture platform which supports 100 percent real-time analytics at unrivaled scale, speed, and low cost of ownership. The platform empowers more agents with immediate next-best-action guidance, delivering the relevant insights within seconds of the customer engagement.
Speech analytics is also an important component of the NICE Customer Engagement Analytics platform, designed to enable contact center managers and other service and marketing managers make timely, better-informed decisions and drive action to improve service processes. Analytics can be applied cross-channel, using powerful patented algorithms to analyze speech, call flow, social media, email and online chat conversations, customer surveys and agents’ desktop activity.
It constructs a unified view of the customer interactions taking place across the organization’s diverse communication channels and uncovers the insights hidden within them. Leveraging these insights, companies can streamline operations, define and create a differentiating customer experience at the decisive moment, and improve revenue growth.
Donna Fluss, president of DMG Consulting
“2013 was another excellent year for the speech analytics market. Adoption is growing in many countries, as more organizations realize substantial benefits from these solutions. Speech analytics is now being used to address practical challenges, in addition to providing broad insights into the reasons why customers are calling. The increase in regulatory requirements and the ongoing drive to improve the customer experience are two important trends driving investments in both post-call and real-time speech analytics.”
