BroadSoft Enhances Xtended Incubator Program, Expanding Opportunities for Third-Party Developers, Service Providers 
New Third-Party Apps Being On-Boarded to the Xtended Marketplace 
GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 --  BroadSoft, Inc.
(NASDAQ: BSFT) announced today that its annual Xtended Incubator
Program -- a global initiative that accelerates the development of
mobile and Unified Communications (UC) applications by providing seed
funding to third-party app developers -- has been expanded into an
on-going program thanks to its success and growth over the past few
Now operating as a year-round program, participating developers will
have expanded opportunities to earn revenues from application sales
by having their apps on-boarded and promoted in the BroadSoft Xtended
(R) Marketplace, an application ecosystem where service providers can
tap into BroadSoft's community of more than 5,000 developers to more
rapidly deliver innovative applications to their enterprise customers
and consumers.  
The benefits of the Xtended Incubator Program to developers are
powerfully illustrated by a pair of third-party developers whose apps
are currently being on-boarded to the BroadSoft Xtended Marketplace:  
Camelon IT Wallboard - A web application that displays real-time data
on BroadSoft Call Centers. The Wallboard provides a visual display of
key metrics for call centers and displays high level statistics and
triggers preset alerts. 
Speech Mobility - A pair of apps, Road Warrior and Smart Number, that
integrates speech-enabled virtual assistant functionality with
Unified Communications to provide intelligent telephony and safe
"BroadSoft recognizes the funding challenge developers face getting
applications from concept to customer, and by committing funding,
resources and support -- as well as access to our global customer
base of more than 500 service providers -- we aspire to accelerate
enterprise and consumer adoption of innovative applications," said
Leslie Ferry, vice president marketing, BroadSoft. "The openness of
our program allows service providers to provide input on apps their
customers want, so that developers like Camelon IT and Speech
Mobility can create apps meeting these needs."  
BroadSoft Xtended will also inco
rporate new APIs for BroadSoft
UC-One(TM), the only "open" unified communications platform for
service providers to design and introduce a comprehensive set of
communications solutions spanning across BroadSoft's product
Ferry adds, "With openness built into UC-One, service providers can
easily integrate other applications designed for a broad range of
users and verticals, including healthcare, retail and education. At
the same time, third-party app developers can not only receive up to
thousands of dollars in seed funding from BroadSoft, but also earn
revenues when service providers integrate these apps with their
Unified Communications solutions."
