BLUEROADS Extends Enterprise Commitment With Significant CRM Enhancements to Its BLUEROADS Connect Integration Platform

Packaged Data Exchange Capabilities Added for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Siebel CRM and Siebel CRM OnDemand

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - BLUEROADS, a leader in Partner Opportunity Management solutions for medium and large enterprises, today announced an extension to its BLUEROADS Connect integration platform to include packaged connectors for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Siebel CRM and Siebel CRM OnDemand. Simplified integration of BLUEROADS with the most highly adopted CRM packages allows companies and their partners to maximize revenue by unifying the management of opportunities across direct and indirect channels. Businesses and their channel partners can now collaborate and gain insight on leads and opportunities through the entire sales lifecycle from first interaction to cash.

The BLUEROADS Connect integration platform allows multiple options for the exchange of data with existing on-premise and on-demand enterprise applications, with solutions that range from pre-packaged integration processes all the way to file-based import and export processes. In addition, BLUEROADS Connect provides comprehensive, industry-standard Web Service interfaces that allow customers to implement custom integration processes for their specific business needs. As a result, BLUEROADS has further simplified data exchange with the most commonly used and sophisticated CRM applications for medium and large enterprises.

"Most of our customers have very complex application environments and our solution typically manages 50 percent or more of their overall revenue. These customers are demanding that we provide a solution that unifies the information stored within our SaaS environment with other enterprise data," said Shinya Akamine, CEO at BLUEROADS. "Through the BLUEROADS Connect integration platform we can deliver a faster time to market with our Software as a Service solution while participating fully in our customers' existing, heterogeneous IT ecosystems."

Through the use of BLUEROADS Connect for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Siebel CRM, Siebel CRM OnDemand and their previously available connector for salesforce.com CRM, BLUEROADS customers will have bi-directional exchange of Lead and Opportunity data, resulting in:

--  Improved lead routing and distribution
