Verint Recognized as Customer Relationship Leader, Winning Coveted CRM Watchlist Recognition

2019 List Recognizes Small Number of Industry Trailblazers for “Sustainable Impact, Superb Culture and Excellent Products and Services”



Verint® Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: VRNT), The Customer Engagement Company, today announced that it has been named a winner in the 2019 CRM Watchlist, an annual evaluation conducted by Paul Greenberg, President of the 56 Group, LLC and author of CRM at the Speed of Light.

The CRM Watchlist recognizes companies that not only had the most impact in the customer-facing technology world in the past year, but also are likely to maintain that impact for the next few years. Out of 73 submissions, Verint was one of 14 companies placed on the Watchlist, now in its 13th year.

In his 2019 CRM Watchlist announcement, Greenberg wrote that the Watchlist looked for companies with a “sustainable impact,” a phrase he defines as “a complete company that has been doing [CRM] long enough to have established a rhythm. The company has to be well-rounded: it has financial stability, solid management, excellent products and services, superb culture, and a strong partner ecosystem to help sustain its efforts. It has to have a clear vision and mission and also clear-cut strategies for outreach to get external forces—customers, analysts, journalists, prospects, influencers, etc.—engaged.”

Winners Excelled in Customer Relationships

“It’s an honor to be included in the 56 Group’s annual Watchlist,” says Nancy Treaster, SVP and general manager, strategic operations, Verint. “Paul Greenburg’s judging is meticulous and insightful. This year, for example, his comments about all the winning companies having a strong focus on customer relationships were precisely in sync with Verint’s commitment to developing customers for life.”

Greenburg noted that the winning companies showed maturity in their relationships with their customers. “Each of them had a strong customer success program in place,” he wrote. “They are all highly mature, battle-tested and well-funded, with clear metrics for measuring success. This is an account-focused approach to service that values the customer and allows the customer to see the vendor as a trusted adviser.”
