Callidus Software Sponsors 7th Insurance Executives' Summit for Strategy, Operations & Technology

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2011) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), the leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), announced today that it is a sponsor at the 7th Annual Insurance Executives' Summit. The event will be held November 8-9 at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Seoul, South Korea. This Summit, now in its seventh year, brings together C-level executives, IT leaders, and solution providers to review how the insurance industry must get up to speed with new technological developments to compete and drive growth, and to anticipate new customer expectations.

Chris Race, Director of Business Development at Callidus Software, will participate in a Technology Solution Panel on Tuesday, November 8, at 2:45 p.m. KST. Mr. Race will address one of the key challenges facing the general insurance industry -- the competition for talent.

"The Insurance Executives' Summit is a great forum for leaders of life and general insurance companies to deliberate on the innovative technologies that are changing the insurance landscape," said Jimmy Duan, Senior Vice President, International Sales, Callidus Software. "Effectively leveraging technology to recruit and onboard agents with the skill sets required for success in each product line is mission critical for insurers to adapt to customers' changing needs. As the market and technology leader in agent lifecycle management, Callidus brings a wealth of experience helping companies develop effective strategies and solutions for recruiting, onboarding, and training top agents, including best practices on compensation. We look forward to engaging with the companies in this region to help them effectively compete and drive growth with the right technology solutions."
