Sunnyvale, CA (September 3, 2014) – eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN)
eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN), the leading provider of cloud customer engagement solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2014.
Ashu Roy, eGain’s CEO, commented, “During the past fiscal year, we invested heavily throughout the organization, particularly in sales, marketing, products, cloud infrastructure and partner relationships to further strengthen our capabilities. We saw increased momentum with our Cisco partnership during the year with significant new customer wins and a growing pipeline worldwide, with geographic expansion that included our first significant wins in both India and Australia in the fourth quarter.
“Our recent acquisition of Exony combines voice and digital platforms to deliver a single view of the customer to our clients, with real time actionable analytics. Exony represents a market first solution to help enterprises take the effort out of omnichannel customer engagement. We believe the resulting scale and expanded technology offering will create significant new opportunities to further accelerate our growth.”
Mr. Roy, concluded, “I was also pleased to see the growth in bookings during the fourth quarter, which grew 98% sequentially and 5% over the record bookings achieved in the prior year quarters. We are focused on building on this positive momentum in the new fiscal year.”
