Enterprise messaging-based team collaboration application accelerates BroadSoft’s Project Tempo initiative to enhance productivity and mobility
GAITHERSBURG, MD, May 31, 2016 – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT), a global unified communication software as a service (UCaaS) leader, has acquired Reston, Virginia-based Intellinote, an enterprise messaging-based team communication and collaboration software application built for the increasingly mobile and millennial workforce.
With team-centric collaboration capabilities that include enterprise messaging, project, task and content management, and over 50 application integrations, Intellinote advances BroadSoft’s vision for Project Tempo. BroadSoft’s Project Tempo is an open communications framework that enables team collaboration and productivity by integrating popular enterprise cloud applications with contextual intelligence and real-time unified communications services provided by BroadSoft UC-One®.
“The consumerization of IT, shadow IT and the rise of millennials in the workforce have upended traditional business and communication models. Users are now in control but today’s point solutions are inadequate and lack integration – leading to scattered communications, ineffective meetings and fragmented workflows,” said Taher Behbehani, chief digital and marketing officer, BroadSoft. “BroadSoft’s Project Tempo envisions an integrated, contextual and mobile collaboration experience, so individuals and teams can work the way they want and focus on areas where they can make the greatest impact. The Intellinote acquisition helps us realize this vision.”
Frost & Sullivan recognized Intellinote’s product innovation with its prestigious 2015 Product Leadership Award for the North American Market. Frost & Sullivan noted that “Intellinote continues providing the best in team communication strategies with its flexible platform—integrating popular business applications, offering file access at any time for any device, and improvements to real-time communication. These combined components allow this solution to stand out and makes Intellinote a notable company to watch."
For 2016, BroadSoft expects the acquisition to be dilutive by about $0.04 to its non-GAAP earnings.
