INDIANAPOLIS -- October 16, 2013

The Customer Experience Professionals Association  (CXPA) has honored
Interactive Intelligence Group Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ININ) Vice President of Client
Success and Education Pam Hynes as one of its CX Impact Award winners.

The CX Impact Awards recognize individuals who help make great customer
experiences happen in companies around the world.

Hynes received the award for establishing the Interactive Intelligence client
success program in 2011, whose mission is to ensure that customers get maximum
value from the company’s products and services.

“With our corporate goal of helping companies turn customer service into a
competitive weapon, it was appropriate to start a program that enabled
engagement with our customers with the sole goal of driving customer success
by better understanding their organization and helping them see the full value
of the solution they purchased,” Hynes said. “The result is a client success
team whose sole job is to understand how these businesses operate, how they
measure customer service success, and what we can do to better address their
challenges. On behalf of the entire team, I’m proud to accept the CX Impact
Award and want to assure our customers that this is just the first step toward
maximizing the value of their investments.”

In addition to forming a global team of client success managers, Hynes has
applied performance measurements to the program using the Net Promoter System
(NPS) methodology, and has initiated a cross-departmental effort called
“Putting Customers First” to raise awareness among employees about their role
and impact on customers.

As a testament to the success of the program, from 2011 to 2012 NPS scores
improved by 45 percent and survey participation improved by 50 percent. The
program also contributed to an increase in customer reference activity, which
was up 90 percent in 2012 compared to the previous year.

Hynes has served in various service management roles since joining Interactive
Intelligence in 1996. Prior to Interactive Intelligence, Hynes functioned in
support and technical service roles at helpdesk software company, Software
Artistry. Prior to that, Hynes was a technical support engineer at American
Financial Resources.

Since Interactive Intelligence joined CXPA in 2011, Hynes has been an active
member, most recently playing an instrumental role in hosting a CX Day
networking event Oct. 1 at the company’s headquarters in Indianapolis, Ind.
The event was part of a CXPA-sponsored global celebration of the companies and
people that create great experiences for their customers.
