Interactive Intelligence Announces a New Channel Partnership With Call Time International

Auckland, New Zealand (August 21, 1998)

Interactive Intelligence® announced today that Call Time International Ltd. (CTIL) would be the first New Zealand based vendor to distribute the Enterprise Interaction Center® (EIC). EIC is an all-in-one Windows NT based communications server that transforms an ordinary PC into a comprehensive communications console.

CTIL is adopting EIC as part of its ongoing effort to offer small and mid-range enterprises a richer array of communication tools. "EIC provides a communications' product that is flexible enough to operate across many types of media," said Rob Witthoft, Commercial Director for CTIL. "What's more, the EIC platform delivers bundled applications that can be used as tools or solutions depending on the needs of the enterprise. This kind of flexibility, as well as EIC's seamless integration, will afford Call Time customers the most powerful and cost-effective computer telephony solutions on the market."

"EIC was designed from the start to allow easy integration with other software applications," stated Douglas Shinsato, Vice President of Asia Pacific Operations for Interactive Intelligence. "Call Time's staff understand this new technology and is uniquely qualified to identify the correct solutions environment for an EIC implementation. Call Time is also well positioned to sell EIC because they grasp the need of businesses to effectively manage communications across all mediums, especially the Internet."

"The recent focus of the web as a business tool motivated us to seek solutions offering more sophisticated multimedia capabilities," commented Witthoft. "EIC's built-in web integration fits perfectly with our desire to break further into the pervasive communications market. The fact that EIC is fully integrated with email, voice mail and fax services, is something our customers will find truly amazing."
