HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) today announced that it has been awarded the Technology Project of the Year at the 13th Annual Retail Systems Awards together with a UK based insurance provider. NICE Workforce Management (WFM) won the award for delivering increased visibility into key performance indicators (KPIs), improving employee engagement, enabling the contact center to absorb significantly more calls as well as expanding flexibility of planning activities for the insurance provider.
Over a 12-month period, NICE delivered increased efficiency through effective intraday planning, which resulted in significant savings for the insurance provider that has a 500-seat contact center and over 100 branches across the UK. A key benefit NICE WFM drove for the insurance provider was increased engagement with employees via expanded scheduling flexibility. By automating employee change requests for holidays, schedule trade, breaks and lunches and more, the NICE solution allowed the insurance provider to easily and quickly address their staff's needs. Using NICE WFM, the insurance provider was also able to publish offline activities more than a month in advance, allowing their agents and managers time to prepare in advance.
John O'Hara, President NICE EMEA, said: "Winning this award is yet another affirmation of the expansive benefits that the NICE WFM solution delivers and how it can change the game for our customers. Improving experiences, both for clients as well as for employees, in today's economy is crucial to an organization’s success, and NICE's innovative product offering is geared to helping customers capitalize on this and lead in their domain."
