(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Interact Intranet, the intelligent intranet software company, today announced the opening of their new Headquarters in New York, USA after a year of exponential growth in the US market. Interact, who already have an office in Dallas, Texas will look to increase its US market share with rapid growth plans including a recruitment drive that will see the team grow by 300% in the coming 12 months.
Nigel Danson, CEO of Interact comments, “The HQ in New York is the key step in our strategy to becoming a global leader in intelligent intranet software and comes off the back of the successful launch of Interact Intranet 7 which provides a combination of productivity, social and collaboration tools to offer customers a smarter way of working. The new office will also allow us to continue to deliver the best service to our growing East Coast customer base whilst extending our reach across the US in tandem with our Gulf Coast office and continue to build on the traction we have gained.”
Interact’s expansion in the US comes at an exciting time for the market place as Gartner estimates that between now and 2016 the social and collaboration market will grow 13.4% annually increasing from a worth currently estimated at $US 840 million to US$ 1.4 billion.
Interact Intranet software is highly regarded by industry analysts with Research 451 commenting, “What makes Interact Intranet 7 stand out is that it is an intranet system that is designed to rethink first-generation intranets and bring relevance to the fore.” It has also been mentioned by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for social software in the workplace, alongside Oracle and Box.
Interact will continue to invest in their cloud technology platform as well as the development of the on premise solution. Scott Hitchins, VP of Sales at Interact comments, “In the last year we have seen a 225% Annual Reoccurring Revenue (ARR) growth rate of our SAAS platform which is great as the technology offers many opportunities for our customers however, we still get a lot of enquiries for our on-premise solution – something that not all our competitors are able to offer so, we see this as a major selling point for us both in the US and the rest of the rest of the world.”
Interact also has four major software updates per year to ensure that the product remains fresh and relevant to the ever changing market requirements, and to ensure that their customers intranets remain essential tools within their business. Hitchins continues, “Customers want evolution, they want to see their investment continue to develop long after they have paid their invoice. Interact is committed to developing features that drive collaboration and engagement to make working together easier and more efficient – this is why Interact Intranet 7 has been so successful.”
With big US names such as Make a Wish Foundation, Florida Hospital Medical Group, ASPCA and Dex Media already customers, Interact expect the new office which is located at 1412 Broadway at the very heart of the City, to become the very hub of its global operation.
