SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - Selectica, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTC), provider of cloud-based sales configuration and contract lifecycle management solutions, today rolled out the latest version of Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management 5, further expanding a feature set that had already made Selectica CLM the preferred choice for companies managing sell-side contracts. Since first announcing Selectica CLM 5 in May 2011 at Fusion '11, the company's annual user conference, Selectica has released three major updates to the product.

"Selectica CLM 5 is very customer-driven, and we're delighted to see how quickly users are embracing the new features," said Joe Lipple, Vice President of Product Management at Selectica.

By listening to our customers, we've released the most significant advances since the product's introduction."

Mobile: "One-click" contract approvals, rejections, and reassignments from Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, and iPad

E-signature: Seamless integration to the most popular e-signature solutions

Reporting: Significant enhancements to reporting across contract types, creation of tables for external reporting/business intelligence (BI) tools, and the ability to email report results in PDF, CSV, or XML format

Usability: Complete overhaul of the user interface (UI) framework, reducing the number of steps to complete actions and enabling better persistence of user settings

Support for Microsoft Office 2010: Full support of Microsoft Office .docx and .xlsx formats for contract documents, attachments, and imports

Authoring: Contract creation, check-in, and validation without leaving Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word Template Management: Addition of approval lifecycles for contract document templates, template versioning, and "future effectivity" for the effective date range of templates

Amendment Visibility: Enhanced insight into agreement status through views showing auditable roll-ups of all amended terms

Selectica CLM 5 is the latest version of Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management, an automated solution that allows companies with complex contract processes to manage contracts from request, authoring, and negotiation through ongoing obligation management and renewal.
