New Business Win: Comba Telecom Selects Callidus Monaco On-Demand

One of Asia's Leading Wireless Enhancement Solutions Providers Selects Callidus Software for Sales Performance Management

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), the leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), continuing its SaaS momentum, today announced that Comba Telecom Limited ("Comba"), a major supplier of wireless enhancement solutions, has selected the Callidus Monaco Suite to manage its sales performance and incentive compensation programs. Under the agreement, signed in the fourth quarter of 2009, Comba will use Callidus Monaco On-Demand for its direct sales force.

"Up to this point, Comba managed its sales compensation and performance through a difficult and inefficient manual process based on spreadsheets," said Simon Yeung, chief operating officer at Comba. "Comba needed a process that could match our rapid growth within Asia and the rest of the world. We needed an efficient and flexible system to help implement new incentive programs quickly, ensure alignment between our incentive programs and corporate objectives, improve sales productivity, retain our top-performers, and enhance corporate governance and compliance. Comba is pleased to partner with Callidus Software and leverage its SPM solutions to help accelerate our growth, efficiency and profitability."

As a rapidly growing high-tech company, Comba will benefit from the scalability and flexibility of Callidus' SPM solutions. The solutions will help design and roll out creative incentive programs and Special Performance Incentive Funds (SPIFFs). This will optimize product mix, penetrate new markets, introduce frequent contests and promotions, and build a strong pay-for-performance culture in the entire organization.

"Callidus already has a strong presence in the financial services and telecommunications industries in Asia Pacific," said Jimmy Duan, senior vice president of emerging markets at Callidus Software. "We are excited to accelerate our market growth in the region and further expand into the high-tech industry by signing Comba as a customer. Callidus' industry-leading SPM solutions enable fast-growing, high-tech companies, like Comba, to scale their businesses and improve efficiency and profitability."
