TI Broadcast Solutions Group Evaluates, Purchases and Deploys the ShareNow On-Demand Document Service in Just One Week Using salesforce.com's AppExchange

ShareNow for AppExchange deployment within TI Broadcast Solutions Group's Salesforce environment represents a dramatic acceleration over traditional methods of buying and deploying software

SAN FRANCISCO — February 14, 2006 & ShareMethods and salesforce.com [NYSE: CRM], the technology and market leader in on-demand customer relationship management (CRM), today announced that TI Broadcast Solutions Group has deployed ShareNow, an advanced document management and collaboration solution from ShareMethods, via salesforce.com's AppExchange. TI Broadcast Solutions Group, a broadcast consulting firm based in Atlanta, GA, evaluated, purchased, and implemented ShareNow via the AppExchange in just one week.

A leading consultant for broadcast studios and corporations, TI Broadcast Solutions Group was looking for an efficient and effective solution to store, organize, and easily retrieve documents, information, and product specifications from their many television equipment manufacturing partners. TI Broadcast Solutions Group also needed a solution for its consultants to develop different solution packages tailored to their clients' specific needs. Because ShareNow is tightly integrated with Salesforce, TI Broadcast Solutions Group is able to easily link equipment proposals and solution packages with different client accounts and opportunities directly in their Salesforce environment.

"The AppExchange provided an excellent platform for us to evaluate and deploy ShareNow," said Michael Wright, president, TI Broadcast Solutions Group. "We took a test drive of ShareNow for AppExchange with our core team and quickly found the application addressed our business needs for working with documents on demand. Evaluating ShareNow on the AppExchange also gave us assurances the service would integrate directly with our Salesforce environment. When the evaluation was complete, we used "Get It Now" in the AppExchange to automatically and immediately install ShareNow directly into Salesforce. ShareNow makes it much easier to manage and share our business information and documents on demand. Overall, the joint solution of ShareNow and Salesforce allows us to be more responsive and provide better service to our clients and prospects."

"The AppExchange has helped us to significantly accelerate our sales cycle," said Eric Hoffert, CEO of ShareMethods. "To go from a prospect learning about our solution and trialing the service with a small team, to installing it and signing a contract within one week — this represents a new, faster, and dramatically more efficient model for evaluating, acquiring, and deploying on-demand software applications. The traditional method for a customer to acquire business software can take months, if not years, resulting in a challenging process for both customer and supplier. So we are thrilled to be part of the AppExchange; with this new way of doing business, we can better support customers like TI Broadcast Solutions Group to realize their business objectives quickly, easily, and affordably."

ShareNow for AppExchange provides powerful capabilities for customers to securely manage and distribute sales and marketing communications, including full document version control, review and approval workflows, user roles and permissions, Google-like full text search of document contents, customizable taxonomies, and deep integration with Salesforce. Customers can easily and quickly setup a sales and marketing knowledge center which can be securely shared across an extended network of users inside and outside of a company.
