INDIANAPOLIS & SYDNEY--()--Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of unified IP business communications solutions, has acquired Sydney-based CallTime Solutions, an exclusive reseller of the vendor’s software suite since 1998.
“CallTime has been our largest revenue-producing reseller in Australia and New Zealand for the last three years”
Per the terms of the acquisition, effective July 1, 2011, Interactive Intelligence has purchased 100 percent of CallTime’s privately held stock in an all-cash transaction. CallTime will operate as part of the Interactive Intelligence sales and services organization in the Australia-New Zealand region.
CallTime has been operating from offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland serving nearly 50 customers, including brand-name companies in the financial services, health care, insurance, non-profit, retail, and telecom industries.
"CallTime has been our largest revenue-producing reseller in Australia and New Zealand for the last three years,” said Interactive Intelligence Group founder and CEO, Dr. Donald E. Brown. “Following this acquisition we’ll have approximately 30 experienced employees to take better advantage of the largest customer opportunities in the region, while providing superior channel support. It’s in line with our strategy of accelerating growth in targeted regions outside of North America, and also nicely augments the recent opening of our Sydney data center, which supports our growing communications-as-a-service business.”
Interactive Intelligence will continue to market its solutions throughout Australia and New Zealand both directly and through its existing channel of authorized resellers.
The headquarters for the combined operations will be in Sydney.
