SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 17 -- ForceLogix and salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM), the market and technology leader in on-demand business services, today announced that several enterprise customers, including American Home Shield, Innovex, Knightsbridge and Sysix have successfully deployed ForceLogix's Sales Optimizer via the AppExchange.

"ForceLogix's technology allows us to deliver a multilingual coaching process that can be easily and rapidly configured and deployed globally," said Jim Kendall, Senior Director of Innovex Business Solutions. "This promotes the consistent execution of our coaching and enhances our ability to capture, evaluate and rank sales representative performance. Our goal is to help Innovex sales forces deliver higher sales for our customers."
Patrick Stakenas, President and CEO of ForceLogix, said: "Our on-demand delivery model allows ForceLogix to provide value to companies such as Innovex without the time, expense and added risks of having to buy hardware, software and implementation services.
