NICE inContact CXone With RiverStar Improves Compliance and Reduces Training Costs and Errors for Appriss Safety

RiverStar Unified Agent Desktop helps streamline agent experiences and increase efficiencies with individual workflows for agents


Salt Lake City, May 16, 2018 – NICE inContact, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business,today announced business results created for Appriss Safety with NICE inContact CXone and integrated RiverStar Unified Agent Desktop that streamlined agent experiences and increased efficiencies. RiverStar Unified Agent Desktop is available on CXexchange marketplace featuring ready-to-use applications designed to integrate with NICE inContact CXone™, the world’s #1 cloud customer experience platform.


Appriss Safety operates a comprehensive and up-to-date arrest data network, serving government agencies and commercial enterprises to save lives, fight crime, prevent fraud, and manage risk. To comply with state laws at Appriss Safety, agents must follow specific regulations based on the state from which a customer calls. Identifying the state of origin for each call was error-prone and tedious, and difficulty increased as state regulations changed or as new states were added. In addition, as more solutions were added to the Appriss portfolio, accurate communications and compliance management became even more problematic.


To meet the challenge, Appriss Safety uses CXone integrated with RiverStar Unified Agent Desktop to achieve the following benefits:

  • Improved compliance by 72 percent
  • Reduced training costs by 50 percent
  • Reduced errors by 35 percent


NICE inContact CXone with RiverStar Unified Agent Desktop was integrated with the Appriss ticketing system in order to automatically identify each call’s state of origin and display custom workflows accordingly. Using CXone with RiverStar, Appriss has developed dozens of individual workflows to streamline complex, state-based communications across all of their different products. As a result, Appriss agents are able to process calls more efficiently with fewer errors and remain in compliance.


“CXone with RiverStar Agent Desktop helped us trim time from every call handled, enabling better tracking of key success metrics and powering our contact center to automate significant portions of script delivery,” said Josh Bruner, President of Appriss’ Government division. “Training time has been cut in half. Quite simply, a great investment.”
