Interactive Intelligence’s Maree moves up to regional role

By

Listed global provider of software and IT services, Interactive Intelligence, continues to ramp up its presence across the Asia Pacific region with the promotion of Brendan Maree from the position of Managing Director Australia, New Zealand & Pacific  to Vice President  Japan, Australia and New Zealand.  

As Managing Director ANZ, Pacific, Maree, who joined Interactive Intelligence (Nasdaq: ININ) eight years ago, has been responsible for growing company sales, managing partner relationships, supporting company acquisitions and boosting the company’s employee base which now numbers more than 120 people across Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

Maree’s appointment to the Asia Pacific role comes at a time as the company continues to ramp its presence across the Asia Pacific region and, according to Maree, witnesses “increased sales momentum for cloud-based contact centre solution deployments.”

Maree said that during the past 12 months alone, Interactive Intelligence has launched new office locations in Perth and Auckland, hosted its inaugural ANZ user conference and was named Frost and Sullivan’s 2013 Australian Contact Centre Applications Vendor of the Year.

“The Australian, New Zealand and Japanese markets are high-growth countries for Interactive Intelligence both in terms of revenue increase and staff headcount.

“In addition, the Asia Pacific region as a whole provides a major opportunity for our cloud-based contact centre solutions as companies seek to harness the productivity, scalability and cost savings which both hybrid and cloud infrastructure solutions provide.  I look forward to expanding my remit to include Japan in 2014,” Maree said.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?
