RA'ANANA, Israel, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced the release of Workforce Management, Performance Management, and Incentive Compensation Management versions 6.2, which include collaboration, adherence and gamification features for greater employee engagement. The new versions are integrated via a common interface, creating a single, easy-to-use portal through which employees can manage their schedules, track their compensation, and improve performance.
"Customer interactions are becoming more complex, and so organizations need to better prepare their people to address sophisticated customer demands," said Yochai Rozenblat, President of the NICE Customer Interactions Group. "Version 6.2 solutions help address this challenge by applying collaboration and gamification technologies to more effectively measure and motivate employee performance and to drive accountability for delivering a better customer experience. In doing so, organizations can get closer to their customers."

Performance Management (PM) and Incentive Compensation Management (ICM)
- Collaboration Tools - The creation of employee profile pages and activity feeds allows companies to foster communication and collaboration.
