Cicero Inc. Wins the American Teleservices Association Technovation Award

CARY, NC--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - On Tuesday, October 6, 2009, Cicero Inc. (OTCBB: CICN), a leading provider of desktop automation and integration solutions, was honored by the American Teleservices Association (ATA) with a Technovation award for the Cicero Platform. During the three-day National ATA Convention and Expo, Cicero was judged by a panel of representatives from the software and contact center operations industries to have provided an innovative solution for a problem facing the majority of contact centers; namely the need to bring together data from a variety of applications in a rapid, cost-effective manner.

The Cicero Platform is a leading framework for organizing, integrating and enabling an organization's various enterprise software applications to operate seamlessly on users' desktops. Cicero goes beyond the more typical server-based solutions by non-invasively exploiting the interaction between the applications and the platform on which they run. A set of tools and a structure ("Framework") makes it simple to integrate applications that aren't typically designed to work together onto one desktop, eliminating incompatibility issues while creating operational efficiencies.

"We are thrilled to be honored by the American Teleservices Association. As a member of ATA, we recognize how distinguished this award is," said John Broderick, CEO of Cicero. "I'm pleased that the Cicero Platform is recognized for its contribution to the growth and the education of contact center capabilities."

Cicero is implemented in contact centers to increase agent productivity, in financial services to streamline workflow and consolidate information, and in government to extract information from legacy systems without access to backend systems. To learn more visit: www.ciceroinc.com.
