Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. on Monday afternoon announced quarterly results that topped analyst expectations.

The Indianapolis-based software and cloud-services company reported revenue of $96.3 million in the second quarter, up 21 percent from the $79.8 million it brought in a year ago. Five analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research expected revenue of $92.4 million.

Revenues from cloud subscriptions were $21.9 million, an increase of 58 percent from the second quarter of 2014.

The company lost $5.1 million, or 24 cents per share, in the quarter, down from $6.8 million, or 33 cents per share, in the same quarter a year ago.

Earnings, adjusted for stock option expense and non-recurring costs, were $307,000, or 1 cent per share, compared with an adjusted loss of $3.7 million, or 18 cents per share, a year ago.

The adjusted earnings exceeded an estimate of six analysts surveyed by Zacks, who expected a loss of 9 cents per share.

“We saw strong execution against our strategic plan this quarter,” Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO Donald E. Brown said in a written statement. “Demand remained solid for our single-tenant cloud solutions and increased nicely for our on-premises solutions. Importantly for the future, interest is building for our new multi-tenant cloud offerings."
