Interactive Intelligence Announces Positive Preliminary Earnings

October 12, 2010

There are a few things I wish for regarding earnings in the tech space.

  • I wish I had time to give my thoughts on every announcement
  • I wish they were all as good as what Interactive Intelligence just accomplished
In short the company just released preliminary third-quarter numbers and said they had nine orders over $1 million with two of them being larger than $2M. I am not sure how this compares with past quarters but regardless, these are significant customer sizes in an era of price compression.

The company says its cloud offering is doing well and you may recall company CMO Joe Staples spent some time recently (video) in the TMC Newsroom giving me details of the launch.

ININ expects total revenue to be between $41-$42 million with GAAP net income between $3.3-$3.9M. Last year the number was $2.8M meaning an increase of at least 17% over last year's sales.

According to founder and CEO Dr. Don Brown, the size of the deals gives the company increased operating leverage and revenue growth.

Here are additional details regarding the company's earnings:

Interactive Intelligence plans to issue a press release announcing its final 2010 third-quarter results Nov. 1 at 4 p.m. Eastern daylight time.

ITEXPO West 2010 Show Guide Available

October 1, 2010

The ITEXPO West 2010 Show Guide is here and if you are flying to the show - you may want to download it to your Kindle/laptop/iPad/netbook/smartphone or print it. I am on the plane now and we have the equivalent of a 300 baud modem's worth of bandwidth so I can't download it but as I recall it is over 100 pages and gives you a solid overview of the dozen conferences taking place next week.

In addition it shows you the exhibit hall with over 200 exhibitors and which sections correspond to which technology.

I have this dream that I will have enough time to go through the directory and point to some of the interesting highlights in a blog post.

We'll see how that works out.

Here is the PDF and it is fairly compressed down to 5 Megs as I recall - we may be getting a higher res one soon as well in case you have the bandwidth.







Apple, Sony, Microsoft, Google and ITEXPO News September 1, 2010

September 2, 2010

It has been an extremely exciting week again for tech news and moreover for me personally as I got a chance to open up my Sony Dash and it is a very cool addition to my desktop as it allows me to view my photos and take advantage of widgets of all kinds which among other thinks allow me to see the pandas at the San Diego Zoo. This handy gadget has a slew of communications, social networking and calendar features as well but for now, I just want to see the pandas.

 

The big news from yesterday of course was Steve Jobs onstage pushing a slew of new iPods and a rental-only model for Apple TV and a social network integrated into iTunes.

We have been seeing an incredible stream of registrations for ITEXPO and related events and as is always the case, my team has done its absolute best to make this show better than ever. At TMC we take education extremely seriously and in a trade show market where companies regularly fold up and go away, we are proud to be putting on industry-leading events for 24 years.

What I have personally learned over the years is if you provide the best education to your customers with a wide enough array of topics, your attendees walk away very happy.
