In the first quarter, we had an increasing number of customers further leverage their investment in our UC-One platform in order to meet this demand. We also had significant interest in our BroadCloud PBX capabilities, as many existing and prospective customers are investigating the accelerated time-to-market benefits of this service delivery platform in order to rapidly capitalize on this growing market trend."
"We had a solid start to 2013 with billings growth in the first quarter of 16% year-over-year. We were particularly pleased with the growth in our core hosted UC business and continued revenue strength in Europe," said Jim Tholen, chief financial officer, BroadSoft. "It was also a strong cash-generating quarter for us; total cash, cash equivalents and investments increased by $11 million from year-end 2012 to over $204 million.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
