. announced that it has earned two prestigious CRM magazine “Service Winner” awards—the publication’s highest honors—in the categories of Workforce Optimisation (WFO) Suite and Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM). For the fifth consecutive year, Verint’s Impact 360® Workforce Optimisation™ suite swept the WFO category and was cited by editors as continuing to “dominate the industry.” CRM also presented top honors to Vovici™, a Verint company, as the ultimate winner in its Enterprise Feedback Management category.
The CRM Service Awards, as announced in the March 2012 issue of CRM magazine, use direct feedback from industry analysts and consultants to rate the top vendors in eight categories. These categories include a composite score across several core areas that include reputation for customer satisfaction, depth of product functionality and company direction.

Verint outscored other contenders in consideration for this award, earning it the top position in 2012 across three critical WFO evaluation criteria. The company also was highlighted for its recent acquisitions and product strategy. According to the publication, Verint was recognised for adding “more analytics and Voice of the Customer (VoC) capabilities to its already powerful Impact 360 [Workforce Optimization] suite…with the acquisitions of GMT and Vovici.”
“While its product strategy continues to evolve…Verint’s acquisition strategy and the execution of its market expansion tactics [are] nothing short of brilliant,” says Paul Stockford, chief analyst, Saddletree Research and CRM magazine judge.
Dick Bucci, principal analyst for Pelorus Associates, differentiates the Verint suite over other market solutions by adding, “The difference is that Verint provides superior integration and ease of use.”

Verint first received CRM’s “Service Leader” honour in the EFM category in 2010, the same year that Vovici was named “One to Watch.” In 2011, Vovici became one of the publication’s EFM “Leaders,” moving on to earn the top “Service Winner” acknowledgement in 2012.
John Ragsdale, vice president of technology research for the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA), notes that Verint’s acquisition of Vovici—which took place in 2011—has “great synergy for both firms and their customers.” He also cited Vovici for offering a “rich, intuitive application design” and on demand model that “keeps costs and complexity low.”
