Actian Selects CallidusCloud CPQ and Litmos LMS to Boost Sales Execution

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), a leading provider of sales and marketing effectiveness software, today announced that Actian Corporation, a next-generation leader in big data analytics, has selected CallidusCloud's Configure Price Quote and Litmos™ Learning Management System to improve sales execution with guided selling and mobile learning. The agreement was signed in the third quarter of 2013.

"Companies are no longer treating CPQ as a discrete solution," said Eric Brown, Senior Vice President, Sales, CallidusCloud. "Being able to embed product, process or services training at the time of quote helps sales professionals to select the optimum combination of products, accelerate the sales cycle and win more deals. We believe that CPQ is far more potent when combined with embedded mobile learning and a live view of the quote's commission value."

CallidusCloud's CPQ provides a 100% multi-tenant, SaaS deal maximizer and deal accelerator. CPQ simplifies and accelerates the selling of all types of products and services. Requiring only a browser, CPQ enables users to quickly configure, price, quote, propose, and sell. The solution specializes in boosting sales through faster, more accurate quotes, collaborative-based selling, and increasing profit margins across companies with simple product catalogs all the way to complex, multi-channel sales networks.

CallidusCloud's Litmos LMS provides an easy-to-use mobile solution for learning and training anytime, anywhere. The Litmos LMS platform enables customers to build and manage professional-looking online courses. System users have access to real-time reporting to see precisely when students have completed their training, how long they took, and what scores they achieved. The SCORM-certified hosted training system does not require any resources or support from the IT department and can be launched in just minutes.
