SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference -- Brainshark, Inc. today announced the company has partnered with four well recognized Salesforce.com integrators including Astadia, Bluewolf, OKERE, Inc. - a Fujitsu Consulting Company, and Theikos.

As companies look to enable CRM with tools for sales reps to sell more effectively and shorten sales cycles; these partners will recommend Brainshark for Salesforce.com as a unique value-added service to enhance communications throughout the sales cycle.

Brainshark enables businesspeople to easily create, deliver and track voice-enriched presentations that are available on demand. The integration with Salesforce.com:

--  Enables sales reps to send consistent, quality "rich media" content;
    obtain immediate and detailed feedback on who is viewing their content and
    for how long; and automatically receive follow-up tasks -- all within
    Salesforce.com, improving productivity and reducing cycle time.
--  Enables marketers and sales management to know not only which content
    is being used by sales reps, but also how prospects are viewing and
    responding to content and which content is instrumental in driving closed
    deals.
