New iPad Solution to Drive Effectiveness of Sales Force in the Field

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), the leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), in a move to further expand and accelerate its sales mobility platform, today announced the launch of MySalesCoach, a next-generation coaching app for mobile devices, powered by ForceLogix On Demand Sales Coaching platform.

"The Callidus mobile platform equips the sales force with the knowledge, training, and -- with this release of MySalesCoach -- winning strategies they need to effectively do their job. The solution saves precious sales time by keeping front-line sales in the field and boosting adoption, increasing the overall effectiveness of sales coaching programs so the sales team can effectively execute campaigns and win more business."

Callidus will co-host a breakout session with Comcast at Dreamforce 2011: "Build Your Sales Dream Team: How Comcast Uses Coaching to Maximize Sales Potential."
