INDIANAPOLIS & ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- February 20, 2013

Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of
unified IP business communications software and services, has released an
enhanced version of its Bay Bridge Decisions^™ product suite.

Version 3.9 of the contact center forecasting, capacity planning, and analysis
product suite has been enhanced to reduce costs and improve customer service.

“We added multichannel features, custom feedback metrics, and a new
cloud-based deployment option to help our customers further reduce staffing
costs, while improving their customers’ service experience,” said Bay Bridge
Division vice president for Interactive Intelligence, Ric Kosiba.

Bay Bridge Decisions^™ 3.9 includes the following enhancements:

  *Email, chat and casework features -- Enables managers to create timeframe
    defaults that calculate staffing over longer periods of time, and includes
    multichannel “sensitivity analysis” graphs for increased staffing
    efficiencies resulting in reduced costs.
  *Customer experience metrics -- Gives managers new custom feedback metrics
    so measures such as “net promoter scores” can be factored into staffing to
    better match hiring needs with interaction quality trends for improved
    customer service.
  *Cloud deployment option – Customers can now deploy the full Bay Bridge
    Decisions^™ 3.9 feature-set via a cloud-based model for lower initial
    costs, faster deployment, and reduced IT requirements.

First released in 2000, the Bay Bridge Decisions^™ product suite has become
the most widely used long-term forecasting and planning solution by large
contact centers throughout the U.S. The solution helps contact centers
optimize delivery strategies, agent resources, and performance by getting the
right number of agents in the right place at the right time to deliver better
service.

In 2012, Interactive Intelligence acquired the makers of the Bay Bridge
Decisions^™ solution, and today it’s offered as part of a complete suite of
all-in-one IP communications software and services for contact centers and
enterprises of all sizes.

Bay Bridge Decisions^™ 3.9 is available worldwide (English only) and can be
purchased through the Interactive Intelligence global sales team.
