Callidus Software Inc. (CALD) is traded on the NASDAQ.
Callidus acquired the leading provider of on-demand portal software for sales enablement, iCentera in July 2011.
iCentera was the leading provider of SaaS solutions for sales enablement. iCentera’s patented platform replaces static portals with a single sales enablement system that quickly enables business users to create and distribute marketing content to sales teams, partners, and customers. The iCentera platform provides easy-to-use solutions for business users that incorporate automated content management, portal creation, and built-in trend and behavior analytics through a cost-effective implementation that is running and available within days. In addition, iCentera Mobile and integrated collaboration platform enables sales users to access subject matter experts and best practices when they need it most — when selling.
Through the acquisition, Callidus adds a leading SaaS-based sales enablement platform to its core pillars of sales performance management: Selection, Onboarding, Coaching and Learning, and Compensation Management. The new solution enables customers to easily deploy insight and best practices to optimize sales and channel partner onboarding, gain more predictable campaign execution, and ultimately increase the effectiveness of sales campaigns to win more business. Callidus also adds a valuable patent to its sales performance management intellectual property portfolio through this acquisition.

O.K., full disclosure, Andy Zoltners was a professor of mine at Northwestern. Sure, I still like the guy. But these are great books. I wish that I had them when I was a sales manager!
