According to the award report, Frost & Sullivan selected Interactive Intelligence for "its industry-leading growth in the cloud contact center applications market, competitive and feature-rich capabilities, and excellent customer support."
The report highlights Interactive's growth strategy, and particularly its latest cloud solution, PureCloud®, which has accelerated that growth: "With PureCloud, the company has introduced a full-featured contact center and business communications offering that is simple, scalable, and affordable. Indeed, the company priced this offering to disrupt the market."
PureCloud is a public cloud offering based on microservice architecture and built atop the scalable Amazon Web Services Cloud. Interactive Intelligence also offers a private cloud solution, Communications as a Service℠ (CaaS).
The report states that Interactive's growth is sustained because of its healthy roadmap of product enhancements in the pipeline: "The company continues to address current customer requirements and unmet needs through continual development of its CaaS, private cloud platform, and PureCloud."
Commending Interactive for its customer ownership experience, the award report states, "From the outset, when businesses start to work with Interactive Intelligence, the company strives to understand the breadth of business needs, matching them with its contact center capabilities, but also the greater business. The company's cloud platforms enable customers to also utilize its breadth of telephony and UCC applications, and content management capabilities, which are fully integrated across platforms."
