Its offerings have often garnered the company recognition from third-party organizations evaluating offerings and ranking companies according to value and performance.
Now, the Indianapolis-based company is being recognized for its growth. The Indianapolis Business Journal
ranked the global provider of unified IP business communications solutions the second among its 25 fastest growing Indianapolis-area public companies.
Last year, Interactive Intelligence (News

"Our IBJ ranking is especially meaningful now because it underscores our sustained success in the midst of some challenging economic conditions," said Interactive Intelligence Founder and CEO, Dr. Donald Brown (News
), in a Tuesday statement.
"We compete effectively on a global basis with companies hundreds of times our size. Our 75 percent growth rate -- up from 51 percent last year based on the 2004 to 2006 period -- demonstrates not just our corporate viability, but the value our solutions bring as customers face increasing pressure to improve operational efficiencies and retain customers,” Dr. Brown added.
This was not the only accolade for Interactive Intelligence this year. The company was also named one of FORTUNE Small Business Magazine’s fastest growing public companies. BusinessWeek named Interactive Intelligence as a 2008 “Hot Growth 50” company.
Indianapolis Business Journal began its fastest-growing companies ranking in 2001 and includes separate rankings for both the fastest growing public and private companies in the Indianapolis area.
