Implementation of NICE SmartCenter Expanded to Improve Customer Service for Major U.S. Electric Utility


To add NICE recording and quality management solutions and integrate with existing NICE workforce management solution already implemented

Ra’anana, Israel - NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), the global provider of advanced solutions that enable organizations to extract Insight from Interactions to drive performance, today announced that Atlanta-based Southern Company, a leading U.S. electricity company, has expanded its strategic implementation of NICE SmartCenter in order to create a more integrated, comprehensive contact center technology environment. Southern Company will replace competing recording and quality management solutions, and will also add screen content analytics. Southern Company is a long-time user of NICE’s workforce management solution, IEX TotalView, and will now expand its NICE environment to help improve agent performance and deliver the highest quality of customer service possible to the company’s over 4 million customers.

NICE will provide supervisors of the 850 agents in Southern Company’s four contact center locations with enhanced technology and tools to support precision quality management for improving agent performance, customer satisfaction, and training effectiveness. It will also enable Southern Company’s contact center supervisors to proactively evaluate the quality of service provided to customers. By identifying key interactions and correlating them with agent screen activity, supervisors can more effectively determine what steps agents can take to deliver world-class customer service, as well as to develop programs for performance improvement.

”This strategic implementation of the NICE solutions presents an opportunity for Southern Company to upgrade to the most robust, comprehensive solution, which will enable us to improve the process of managing agents and their interactions with customers,” said Harvey Ellis, Call Center Operations Support Manager, Southern Company. “We have been using NICE’s workforce management solution successfully for ten years, so it was completely natural to make NICE SmartCenter the standard across our contact centers.“
