Customers can now leverage selling and product configuration tool on the road

ISV momentum on Force.com builds as Dreamforce 2010 approaches

CHICAGO, IL, Nov. 29, 2010 –Cameleon Software (PAR:CAM), a global leader in product design, sales configuration, quotes, and proposals (CPQ) software, is pleased to announce it has moved into the mobile sales space with the announcement of its upcoming application, Cameleoncloud CPQ for Salesforce, for the iPad and iPhone. Cameleoncloud CPQ for Salesforce is immediately available for test drive and deployment on AppExchange 2 at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange/.

Cameleon Software will be attending Dreamforce 2010, the cloud computing event of the year, at Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco December 6 – 9, 2010. Be sure to stop by booth 807 for a demo and more information.

Cameleoncloud CPQ for Salesforce currently empowers users to collaborate more efficiently by leveraging the opportunity module to automate the quotation processes. The move to the iPad and iPhone will assist mobile workers and field sales representatives in their activities by enabling the use of Cameleon’s highly advanced guided selling and product configuration tool from anywhere. As long as their iPad has internet access, users will be able to evaluate the customer’s needs, configure a product, and provide a quote. All information will be securely saved to Salesforce automatically, so once the sales representative is back in the office he or she can edit it, create formal PDF quotes, or finalize it for the customer.

“Mobility is one of the fastest growing trends in the sales industry, and we have seen a spike in interest from customers for a mobile solution from Cameleon,” said Jacques Soumeillan, CEO at Cameleon Software. “Now users can take advantage of our unique and innovative functionality from anywhere, which is going to be beneficial both for them and their customers and prospects.”

In addition to the mobility benefits, users will also benefit from the simple to use interface of the app, which will make the configuration and overall sales process simpler.

“Cameleon has been a leader in adopting new technologies in line with where the market is moving,” said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer at salesforce.com. “They were one of the first companies on our AppExchange2 to incorporate enterprise collaboration to their offering with Salesforce Chatter, and now Cameleon continues to innovate by moving into the mobile space with an app for the iPad and iPhone.”

The Cameleoncloud CPQ for Salesforce CRM app on iPad will be available in summer 2011.
