Russian Telecom Giant, VimpelCom, to Leverage NICE Systems for Improving Business Performance in VoIP Contact Centers


Expands NICE implementation to enhance customer service

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 leading Russian telecom, VimpelCom (NYSE: VIP), will be expanding its NICE environment with additional VoIP contact centers, bringing it to a total of 13. The NICE solution, with a unique Russian interface, will be used to enhance the service provided to VimpelCom’s customers across Russia as well as CIS countries Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and Armenia.

VimpelCom is a multi-billion dollar company that provides telecommunications services, fixed-line, wireless, and Internet and integrated telecommunications services under the Beeline brand name. It also provides value-added services, including infotainment, mobile Internet, voice mail, short messaging service, multimedia messaging service, caller number identification, call waiting, and data transmission, among others.

NICE will enable VimpelCom’s contact center supervisors to proactively evaluate and improve the quality of service provided to customers calling about VimpelCom’s range of wireless, fixed, broadband voice and data services. By targeting key calls as well as correlating them with agent screen activity, supervisors will be able to more accurately identify how agent behaviors are impacting quality of service so they can develop programs for sharing best practices as well as programs for performance improvement where needed.

“Our experience with NICE’s solutions in Russia made them the clear favorite for further enhancing our capabilities in our contact centers,” said Leonid Kramarenko , Customer Service Director of VimpelCom. “With the increased familiarity of the Russian and CIS consumer with mobile phone services, even well-known brand-names such as our Bee-Line require top customer care to reduce attrition and find new ways to extract insights that can help us expand market share and reduce costs. NICE provides the ideal solution.”

“VimpelCom’s decision to enhance its NICE environment underlines NICE’s ongoing commitment to providing the most advanced solutions to telecommunication companies worldwide,” said Tamir Ginat, President, NICE Systems EMEA. “With a unique capability of uncovering customer wants and needs, as well as the level of service agents are providing, NICE’s solutions are enabling telecoms all over the world to increase their odds of success in a fiercely competitive market, by helping to decrease churn and increase average revenue per user.”
