Changes to Interactive Intelligence's CIC Release Model

David Currier

If you attended Interactions 2014, you may have heard that changes are coming to the way Interactive Intelligence (ININ) releases software updates for their flagship product: the Customer Interaction Center (CIC).

Interactive Intelligence CIC 4.0 Reporting Caveats

David Currier

One of the things you may have been looking forward to in CIC 4.0 is new reports. If not, you should be – they’re great! Interaction Reporter includes several categories of new reports built on the ActiveReports engine. Combined with more granular and accurate reporting data, they provide easier access to more information. Sure, you can still write custom reports to display anything you want… but why re-invent the wheel if the data you need is already there?

It has been shopping season at our house….Back to School Shopping just finished. It seems that my 13-year old son is always in need of a larger pair of shoes….and, of course, there are the almost daily trips to the grocery store for more milk. We all do lots of shopping in our lives. But…I’ll bet you’ve never thought about shopping for “accessories” for your CIC system. Did you know that there is a place for you to do exactly that?

Interactive Intelligence 4.0 - 3 Ways to Avoid Test Anxiety during your Upgrade

Ruth Lochary

My mom went back to college after I graduated from college. She loves to learn and she studied hard. However, when it came time to take tests, she froze up – she had a major case of test anxiety. She struggled to communicate what she knew in a testing format. Fortunately, she had a professor who recognized that she was studying hard. He administered one of her exams by sitting and talking to her. Asked to discuss the various essay questions, she quickly demonstrated that she knew the material cold. In that format, she aced the test. 

Recently, I’ve been watching our customers get ready for their 4.0 upgrades.
