BroadVision Standardizes on salesforce.com's Online Customer Relationship Management Application

Rapidly Growing Company Deploys salesforce.com to Meet Demands of Growing Worldwide Sales Team

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — May 15, 2001 — Salesforce.com, the worldwide market leader in supplying enterprise applications as online services, today announced that BroadVision Inc., (Nasdaq: BVSN, Neuer Markt: BDN), the leading provider of personalized e-business applications, will standardize its global sales force on salesforce.com's online CRM service. BroadVision's 300+ person sales team will use salesforce.com to easily produce global sales forecasts, effectively manage up to the minute customer data and opportunities and maximize revenue opportunities.

"BroadVision's rapid growth and immediate need for results made salesforce.com's CRM service the perfect choice,'' said John Dillon, president and CEO of salesforce.com. "The time to value can be measured in days with salesforce.com. We are pleased that our service is playing an important role for BroadVision and its customers."

As one of the fastest growing software companies in the world, BroadVision needed an accurate, accessible way to communicate with its sales force and forecast deals in real-time. BroadVision chose salesforce.com's CRM service to keep its fast-growing sales department up-to-date and help regional managers keep up with what was happening out in the field. With the salesforce.com service, managers are now able to better-forecast upcoming deals and communicate with their sales team more effectively -- something outdated spreadsheets failed to achieve.

"With salesforce.com, we are able to gather information from all over the world, analyze it and create accurate global forecasts in real time," said Peter Downs, Vice President of Finance for BroadVision. "The other software packages we evaluated were outrageously expensive. With salesforce.com, we have already seen a very high return on our investment."

Designed for companies of any size, salesforce.com combines powerful online customer relationship management with a low total cost of ownership and a rapid time to value. Salesforce.com was created to help companies improve productivity, maximize efficiency, gain competitive advantage and enhance long-term relationships with their customers.

Salesforce.com believes the Internet has "democratized" enterprise applications. Companies no longer have to tolerate expensive, risky, difficult-to-use software that takes months and years to install and offers little or no return on investment. The company provides powerful online CRM as a subscription web-based service and charges a low monthly fee per user.
