SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 30, 2009) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), the leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), today announced that PSS World Medical (NASDAQ: PSSI), has selected the Callidus Software TrueComp® Manager, TrueInformation® and Callidus TrueAnalytics™ software modules to manage its incentive compensation programs. Under the agreement, signed in the third quarter of 2009, PSS World Medical will use Callidus' applications for its sales representatives in the United States.
