PeopleMaps Exhibiting at Dreamforce 2009 as a Bronze Sponsor

Social Sales Application Introduces New Capabilities at Salesforce's User and Developer Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - 7 Degrees Inc., the creator of PeopleMaps, will be exhibiting in booth 1303 at Dreamforce 2009, salesforce.com's seventh annual user and developer conference. Representatives from the company will be on hand to show how organizations can use PeopleMaps' Professional Edition on the salesforce.com platform to accelerate sales by leveraging the power of users' personal and professional networks. 7 Degrees is a Bronze sponsor of the event, which will be held November 17-20th at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

PeopleMaps' Professional Edition gives salespeople deep visibility into their relationship networks by visually mapping how they are connected to any person or company. The powerful PeopleMaps Graph Engine analyzes information from personal contacts, social networks, premium data sources and the Internet to reveal each salesperson's best Connection Paths to his or her targeted prospects and leads, facilitating warm introductions. Using PeopleMaps, salespeople and sales teams can efficiently leverage their relationships to speed up sales cycles and generate revenue more quickly.

7 Degrees recently expanded the PeopleMaps application, introducing integration into the salesforce.com "Accounts" and "Contacts" tabs. PeopleMaps had previously been integrated into the salesforce.com "Leads" tab. This integration enables salespeople to sort leads, accounts and contacts based on the salesperson's connection strength to each, quickly showing their strongest Connections Paths. Features of PeopleMaps Professional Edition include:

-- Automated Connection Strength Ranking™ (Integrated into Leads,
   Accounts and Contacts tabs)
-- Unlimited ConnectionPaths
-- Unlimited PeopleMaps
-- Unlimited CompanyMaps
-- One-Click Warm Introductions
-- Safe Contacts Sharing for Teams & Companies

"The PeopleMaps application is the most powerful way to accelerate sales and is crucial for salespeople looking for warm introductions to prospects," said Timothy Sheehan, CEO of 7 Degrees. "Salespeople are now able to quickly and easily search the broadest and deepest database of relationship information, automatically leveraging all of their relationships and shortening sales cycles to drive revenue more quickly."
