CallidusCloud Announces Internet of Things Platform at Sell-Out C3 EMEA Conference

Platform Makes Sales and Marketing Information Available in Real Time to Sensor-Enabled Devices

DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2016) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), a global leader in cloud-based sales, marketing, learning and customer experience solutions, today announced a ground-breaking new Internet of Things (IoT) platform that will connect customer devices to the Lead to Money suite, driving dramatically new capabilities in service, responsive selling, and customer experience creation and fuelling growth in the connected economy.

The announcement was made at the company's London stop of its C3 user conference in front of a packed house. The new platform provides customers with an innovative way to connect millions of devices to their Lead to Money applications to sell faster and transform customer experience.

"The Internet of Things is a huge opportunity for customers to accelerate growth, develop their talent and deliver phenomenal customer experiences," said Leslie Stretch, president and CEO of CallidusCloud. "Today there are more connected devices than people on the planet and our customers want to seize that opportunity now. We are already working with a customer that is in the process of connecting 100,000 devices to our IoT-enabled Configure Price Quote solution, but we see huge implications for all parts of the Lead to Money process and beyond."

Examples of how the platform can accelerate business include:

  • Businesses can generate quotes or send replacement parts based on data about the use or wear conditions of sensor-enabled equipment
  • Marketing campaigns can be triggered instantly based on customer behavior data
  • Data about usage can automatically generate customer satisfaction surveys at moments of truth in the customer relationship
  • Commissions for IoT-enabled follow-on sales can be paid instantly
  • Sales and purchase behavior can instantly initiate training and coaching courses without the need for manager intervention

The platform, based on a breakthrough API layer that can deliver data in real time to specific sales and marketing applications, will be formally unveiled at CallidusCloud's C3 Conference in Las Vegas, May 9-11.
