RA'ANANA, Israel & DALLAS -- NICE Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq:NICE), the global provider of advanced solutions that enable organizations to extract Insight from Interactions[TM] to drive performance, today announced the City of Dallas has selected NICE's interaction analytics and its IEX workforce management solutions to improve emergency response and customer service in the city's uniquely combined 9-1-1/3-1-1 communications center.

With the addition of the IEX workforce management solution, the City of Dallas center will be able to efficiently forecast and schedule telecommunicators and streamline staff planning, assuring better service and improved response time.

"Our center handles both 9-1-1 emergency and 3-1-1 calls for the City of Dallas and our goal is to provide the best possible service to the citizens of Dallas in every situation," said Willima Banner, 9-1-1 System Operations Manager, City of Dallas. "NICE will help us achieve this goal by giving us insight into our interactions to improve performance, and by helping us ensure that the right telecommunications specialists, with the right skills, are always on the other end of the line when citizens need immediate help."
