"I am pleased with both our financial performance and the progress we made against our strategic objectives in the first quarter," said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. "The undeniable shift by enterprises from premise-based PBX solutions to cloud-based, mobile-centric unified communications is a significant opportunity for our service provider customers. 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. We look forward to building upon these successes throughout the rest of the year."
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
