News : Interactive Intelligence Positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant
Indianapolis, IN, Oct 20, 2015 -- Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of software and cloud services for customer engagement, unified communications and collaboration, has been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Contact Center as a Service, North America2.
"This report is especially significant for us because we’re the only vendor to be named a leader in both the cloud and on-premises contact center markets," said Dr. Donald E. Brown, Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO. "We believe this underlines our proven track record in contact center deployments of all kinds. And as the vendor positioned furthest overall in completeness of vision for cloud customer engagement solutions, we also offer contact centers the kind of future innovation required to make superior service a key competitive differentiator."
According to the report, Gartner describes Magic Quadrant Leaders as follows: "Given that the CCaaS market in North America is still maturing, Leaders can best be described as suppliers with a strong multichannel product and service capability, and that have already amassed a large installed base of both large and small customers. They also benefit from being able to support varying levels of deployment complexity, including multichannel deployments and integration to a variety of third-party systems."
This year Interactive Intelligence made available its multitenant PureCloud Engage? service designed for security and elasticity, along with fast deployment and instant access to upgrades.
