(Nasdaq: VRNT), The Customer Engagement Company ™, today announced that it received the top customer satisfaction score in the product satisfaction and product effectiveness categories of DMG Consulting LLC’s new 2018/2019 Intelligent Virtual Agent Product and Market Report.

Verint also achieved the top rank for customer ratings of product effectiveness and achieved the top score in eight of 10 categories, including the ability to increase sales; the ability to deliver a personalized customer experience; the ability to improve productivity and increase the use of self-service; the ability to increase the use of digital channels; and the ability to reduce customer effort and improve the customer experience.

In DMG’s customer satisfaction survey regarding the five vendors themselves, Verint was further cited for top scores in overall vendor satisfaction; current product; training; ongoing service and support; responsiveness to product enhancement requests; and vendor communication.
