Latest Innovation Addresses Case Management and Workflow Processing

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 5, 2008 Webcom, Inc., the leader in simplifying the complex, today announced the availability of CallidusCloud WorkFlow, Webcom's newest offering addressing the case management and workflow processing areas. CallidusCloud WorkFlow is designed to speed "time-to-resolution", eliminate unnecessary time delays and improve overall communications and productivity through improved transparency and collaboration.

CallidusCloud WorkFlow is a robust case management and workflow solution that helps organizations keep their projects on track without making the lives of team members more complicated. This basic application provides a central location for managing the key aspects of all types of cases, including product and service defects, customer and supplier complaints, non-conformance issues, health and safety incidents and RMAs. Separate tabs keep key information within easy reach. Your team can log issues as they arise, prioritize them, and update their status as appropriate. Built-in reports let you see open issues by project, projects by stage, and many other categories.

"After months of review and the evaluation of numerous vendors to help implement a Product Information Management system, we chose CallidusCloud WorkFlow from Webcom", stated Mark Hughes, Internet Marketing Manager at Broan-NuTone. "Having several thousand products to manage from conception to obsolescence, we wanted to have stability out of the box. We feel that CallidusCloud WorkFlow is the perfect fit", added Hughes.

With some research indicating customer acquisition costing as much as 10 times as customer retention, CallidusCloud WorkFlow complements Webcom's quoting solution, WebSource CPQ, quite well and continues the company's focus on simplifying the complex. "Attaining your goals and objectives requires not only a focus on obtaining new business through a quote-to-order solution such as WebSource CPQ, but just as rigorous a focus on retaining your most treasured asset, your customers", commented Aleksandar Ivanovic, CEO and founder, Webcom, Inc. "CallidusCloud WorkFlow is just the type of solution needed to help drive customer satisfaction, innovation and repeat business", added Ivanovic.
