<p>“Our approach to unified communications is quite different than that of other vendors,” said Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO, Dr. Donald E. Brown. “Rather than simply trying to improve the efficiency of communications, we’ve taken communications technology and used it in an innovative way to automate core business processes.”</p>
<p>Interactive Intelligence first released its unified all-in-one IP communications software suite in 1997 to eliminate the cost and complexity introduced by multipoint products. The company continues to expand its vision for UC with its communications-based process automation solution, Interaction Process Automation™ (IPA), which addresses primary challenges cited in the Gartner UC Magic Quadrant report. These include application and product complexity, and lack of a business case based on soft return on investment.</p>
<p>“By decreasing the number of employees required in a given business process, eliminating process latency, reducing human error, and providing standardised methods for handling processes, IPA delivers on the promise of UC with a straightforward solution offering measurable ROI,” Brown said.</p>
<p>IPA leverages the Interactive Intelligence IP-based unified communications platform to orchestrate the delivery of work, thus giving organisations everything they need to capture, prioritise, route, escalate and track each step of a business process. To learn more about IPA, visit:</p>
