Callidus Joins With MuniConS to Extend European Reach

Market Leader Drives Sales Performance Adoption in the German, Swiss and Austrian Regions

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), the leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), announced today it has signed a strategic reseller partnership with MuniConS GmbH. Based in Munich, Germany, MuniConS is a leading SPM Consultancy and Systems Integrator, supporting customers in the implementation and operation of incentive solutions and CRM. The agreement, which was signed in the first quarter of 2011, further extends Callidus penetration in the German and broader DACH regions.

"Callidus is the industry's leading SPM provider so this partnership has strategic significance for MuniConS," commented Philip Debbas and Rolf Pollmeier, founders and managing directors at MuniConS. "Aligning with Callidus will allow us to strengthen our business proposition which focuses on improving sales force effectiveness within an organization. This natural synergy was demonstrated to great effect when Callidus partnered with MuniConS on a successful engagement at Kabel Deutschland, one of the largest cable operators in Germany, to manage and implement the incentive compensation programs for its German sales channels."

"We continue to see great momentum in the German marketplace in adoption of Callidus solutions," commented Barry Carson, Vice President, European Sales, Callidus Software. "This new partnership with MuniConS better positions Callidus to meet the growing demand for our innovative sales effectiveness solutions in the German market, and complements our efforts to drive new business in the Austrian and Swiss markets."
