BURLINGTON, MA, August 27, 2007 – Centive, the leader in on-demand sales compensation management, today announced the Summer 2007 release of Compel®, the most widely used choice for on-demand sales compensation management. Featuring Compel Automated Credit Assignment™ – the first auditable and fully automated crediting suite in an on-demand application – the new release of Compel provides companies with superior tools to enable them to leverage sales compensation strategically to drive sales performance, revenue and profitability.

The Summer 2007 release of Compel also includes enhancements to Compel’s comprehensive reporting suite, plan document generation tools, and quota management, and an upgrade to Adobe Flex™ 2. These new features significantly increase usability for Compel customers, making it easier for sales executives to manage their teams and for sales representatives to better chart their progress towards achieving quota targets. Centive continues to deliver Compel as the industry’s only fully integrated sales compensation solution; there are no additional modules or additional cost for reporting, crediting, modeling or forecasting.

“Centive engages in an especially impressive set of programs for collecting and prioritizing requirements from customers, prospects, partners and industry influencers to help shape their product roadmap,” said Denis Pombriant, managing principle at Beagle Research Group. “The new feature set delivered in the Summer 2007 release of Compel, combined with Centive’s rapid growth and the strong endorsements they receive from their customers, indicate that Centive is successfully staying ahead of the curve in meeting diverse market requirements for sales compensation management.”

Specific feature enhancements in the Spring 2007 release of Compel include the following:

1. Fully Auditable, Integrated Crediting Suite

2. Enhanced Custom Reporting Capability
