The fourth quarter also marked the first sequential quarter of revenue growth in over a year," stated Jim Milton, president and CEO of SoundBite Communications. "In addition to our financial performance, we also continued our focus on operational improvements. During the quarter we received PCI re-certification as a Level 1 service provider. Achieving this most rigorous level of validation available under the PCI Data Security Standard provides a high level of strategic value to us and our clients." Milton continued, "We continue to make progress in our key initiatives – global growth, mobile expansion and the hosted contact center. Our clients are welcoming our expansion efforts, as evidenced in the new and unique pilots underway, and are looking towards SoundBite for their future proactive communication plans. The headwinds we experienced throughout 2010 continue, but we are starting to see improvement that we believe will have a positive effect on the second half of the year."
