TMCnet Contact Center Solutions Week in Review

August 11, 2012

The Contact Center Solutions community this week again saw lots of news coming out of Interactive Intelligence (News - Alert) that is worthy of attention. In fact, the company ended this week with what I think is an important acquisition with the announcement that effective August 1, they have purchased Bay Bridge (News - Alert), a Maryland-based provider of long-term forecasting and planning technology specifically geared to contact centers.   

Other Interactive Intelligence news saw the company garnering the IP Contact Center Market Challenger PilotHouse award from Nemertes Research beating out major competitors based on end-user ratings.   And, they released an updated version of their popular Interaction Process Automation (IPA) software.
