Callidus Software On-Demand Surpasses 11,000 Subscribers

The Fastest Growing Provider of Complete SPM Solutions Experiences Significant Momentum Around Its On-Demand Solution

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - August 17, 2007) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), a leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), today announced that it has signed contracts for its hosted on-demand services covering over 11,000 payees since its introduction only 15 months ago. Subscribers to Callidus' On-Demand SPM solutions in 121 countries include C-level and sales executives and compensation specialists inside many of the world's largest Fortune 2,000 companies.

Callidus offers the only fully featured SPM solution in an on-demand environment -- with the same feature set found in the Callidus on-premise version. Callidus is the first SPM provider to offer a hybrid-model to its customers, designed to future-proof their SPM investment against upcoming deployment decisions, be they on-premise or on-demand. Callidus On-Demand offers the scalability and security companies require for the mission-critical processes of sales performance management. It provides a quick and affordable solution that is designed for swift ROI.

Further strengthening its on-demand offerings, Callidus recently announced the availability of the Callidus TrueComp® software Suite for AppExchange. With it, salesforce.com customers have access to a widely deployed and proven SPM suite of products.

"We are very pleased to report that Callidus has now signed contracts for its hosted on-demand services covering over 11,000 payees to easily track and successfully manage the complexities of all things related to sales and sales compensation," said Jeff Saling, vice president of Callidus On-Demand. "While we're proud to offer on-premise solutions to 1.7 million payees in all the markets we serve, it's especially exciting to see such high levels of uptake for our on-demand offerings -- these numbers reflect the ease with which customers can sign-up for and implement our service and see immediate improvements in sales performance."

Callidus' SPM software solutions deliver a high and proven ROI in a very short period of time by allowing sales executives to make better incentive decisions, providing timely visibility into channel operations, and giving them the flexibility to rapidly deploy new sales and distribution strategies and tactics.

In challenging economic times and faced with unprecedented competition, companies are pursuing new ways to drive revenue and optimize profitability. Managing incentives and compensations, the second biggest line item on a companies P&L sheet, is one of the untapped levers to bring revenue and optimization strategies to life.
