Combined Solutions Enable Clients to Better Implement, Execute and Manage Compensation Plans for All Employees

SAN JOSE, CA and MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2009) - At the WorldatWork Total Rewards 2009 Conference and Exhibition in Seattle today, Workscape, Inc., a leading provider of outsourced benefits and talent management solutions, and Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), the leader in Sales Performance Management (SPM), announced a joint marketing relationship. Callidus Software and Workscape extend the functionality of their respective solutions -- Workscape's Compensation Planner and Callidus' TrueComp® Manager software -- creating the broadest set of compensation solutions in the industry.

Providing total control over both sales and non-sales based compensation, the combination of solutions from Callidus Software and Workscape enables Workscape to offer a full-end-to-end sales compensation management solution and further expands its leadership position in the talent management market. Through the partnership, Callidus Software can also offer new functionality such as salary and merit planning and stock option allocations to its customers. Workscape Compensation Planner provides guidelines, budget control and approvals to all merit, bonus, stock and other elements of compensation planning for general employees. Callidus TrueComp Manager software optimizes incentive compensation across companies of any size and industry, drives revenue and aligns employee behavior with corporate objectives. The result is a comprehensive solution-set that can tackle the toughest compensation management requirements.

"We are pleased to ally ourselves with Callidus Software to offer our customers a solution that enables them to improve control of their sales compensation processes. Through this alliance, we can provide our clients with access to a broader array of compensation solutions that are designed to introduce greater visibility and control to compensation practices across an enterprise," stated Tony Marzulli, chief marketing officer at Workscape.

"Our customers want a unified way to manage all aspects of compensation, from salaries to commissions to stock options," said Steve Apfelberg, senior vice president of marketing and business development at Callidus Software. "Through our relationship with Workscape, we now offer software solutions to manage the full spectrum of employee and partner pay."

Workscape Compensation Planner not only tracks salary increases and rewards associated with annual performance reviews, but it also manages off-cycle compensation changes to help avoid budget overruns. Automatic application of corporate compensation guidelines and limits, along with instant visibility into budget impact, makes it easier for managers to handle tough decisions.

The Callidus TrueComp software suite enables companies to more effectively manage the entire incentive and sales compensation processes, from calculation to reporting to dispute resolution. The TrueComp suite provides ease of use and flexibility for compensation plan administration, allowing customers to be agile in adjusting sales strategies to respond to changing market conditions. By optimizing their investment in sales compensation, companies are able to drive revenue within a prudent commission expense structure.

Both organizations are exhibiting at the WorldatWork Total Rewards 2009 Conference and Exhibition in Seattle, which held its opening reception on May 31. Exhibits open on June 1 and continue through June 2. Both companies are conducting a "Compensation Quiz" at the conference and participants can win a Flip video camera.
