Well, it was better than the first quarter. Thank you, Vodafone UK.

Jacada Ltd., a business process software vendor, today reported financial results for the 2005 second quarter. Their operating loss for the 2005 second quarter was $410,000, compared to $4.3 million in the 2005 first quarter.

Net loss for the 2005 second quarter was $233,000, or ($0.01) per share, compared to a net loss of $4.2 million, or ($0.22) per share, in the 2005 first quarter.

Total revenues for the 2005 second quarter were $5.5 million, up from $4.0 million in the 2005 first quarter and $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2004. Software and products revenues were $2.0 million in the 2005 second quarter, up from $0.8 million in the 2005 first quarter and $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2004.

Service and maintenance revenues were $3.5 million in the 2005 second quarter, compared to $3.2 million in the 2005 first quarter and $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2004.

Gross profit for the 2005 second quarter was $4.5 million, or 82% of total revenues, compared to $2.6 million, or 66% of total revenues, in the 2005 first quarter.

Jacada signed a nice enterprise license agreement with Vodafone UK in the first quarter of 2005 where Vodafone purchased an enterprise license to implement Jacada Fusion in more of its UK contact centers and retail outlets.

As was announced on March 30, 2005, the software license agreement is expected to yield several million dollars over the coming quarters, with a portion of the revenue being recognized in the second quarter of 2005.

Vodafone UK is a member of the world's largest mobile network, has 15.2 million UK customers and offers a wide range of voice and data communications.

Vodafone officials say they implemented Jacada Fusion to simplify how contact center agents in its SAVES group access and use applications across different computing platforms, as multiple problems resulted from having agents accessing two separate systems with no real-time data exchange or updates.

Steve Johnson, chief architect at Vodafone says by using Jacada Fusion "Vodafone has cut the time of a successful customer retention call by 50%, and we completely eliminated our manual call wrap-up process."

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
