Interactive Intelligence Partner Conference in Full Swing

October 07, 2008

The 2008 Interactive Intelligence Partner Conference, which featured a preconference day yesterday, begins in earnest today at the Westin Indianapolis.
 
The conference is designed to afford all Interactive Intelligence partner team members who sell, support, or implement software solutions from Interactive Intelligence the opportunity to gather, to learn and to enjoy themselves among their peers.
 
This year’s conference has been restructured with new programs, entertainment, and networking opportunities including six learning tracks, featuring nearly 100 sessions all designed to help Interactive Intelligence partners improve their business.
 
A Business Solutions track will offer insight into the current markets and coming market trends. Sales professionals will want to attend the Sales Strategies track and a new track focused solely on Competitive Analysis.
 
Attendees with a more technical bent will want to participate in the “Day with the Developers” — an opportunity to meet one-on-one with Interactive Intelligence developers and product managers with a white board and their undivided attention. For these attendees there are several other options including the Technical Innovation tracks, Hands-On Labs and Advanced Support Troubleshooting track — these sessions are designed to address various levels of technical depth with regard to the content offering each session will cover.
 
A quick highlight of some of the first day’s sessions includes:
 
·         2008 Interactive Intelligence Update: A quick update on Interactive Intelligence in 2008 featuring financial highlights, sales highlights, and more, presented by Gary Blough, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales
