Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 26, 2004

Lucidics, Inc. and Juice Software(R), Inc. today announced a joint effort to offer sophisticated sales reporting and analysis to small and medium sized companies that use the popular salesforce.com sales force automation system. Lucidics will develop solutions using Juice Software's powerful business reporting and data integration solution to provide salesforce.com subscribers with penetrating insight into their sales and customer relationship environment through custom report packages and Juice powered Microsoft Excel-based templates.

The power of Juice software and the Lucidics analytical sales management framework will combine to rapidly translate raw data from salesforce.com and other sources into powerful, intuitive analytic reports. Instead of sifting through cumbersome list-oriented displays, sales managers and reps can focus on the insights revealed in the report packages and take the appropriate focused actions to improve the productivity of the sales, marketing, and CRM environments.

The flexibility of the report packages allows subscribers to quickly implement action-oriented reporting from the sample report templates or custom designed reports integrating special fields in salesforce.com with web-accessible external data sources and local databases. Companies can explore the possibilities of analytical sales management via a free trial of Juice Pro for salesforce.com containing report templates from Lucidics, at http://salesforce.juice.com.

"All firms need insight into their sales environment that they can quickly translate into focused programs and actions to achieve business objectives," said Richard Grant, COO of Lucidics, "Juice Software and Lucidics are providing the highest-level analytic reports to firms that don't have a sales operations staff or advanced IT resources."

Key benefits include:

-- Analytic Excel reports and performance scorecards revealing

consolidated and customized view of sales performance and

customer relationships without troublesome mining of

salesforce.com

-- Highly flexible, dynamic Excel report templates combining

salesforce.com data and any external data sources, providing

360(degree) views of customer relationships and sales

performance.

-- Increased productivity of sales and marketing forces by

providing powerful insight that will direct focus and action

to fix sales bottlenecks and leverage best practices.

"Juice Pro for salesforce.com fulfills customers' requests for the industry's first hosted solution for Excel based ad-hoc analysis, reporting and scorecards of salesforce.com data," said Eric Yau, CEO of Juice Software. "Juice Pro for salesforce.com extends the worth of sales information by seamlessly combining internal information sources with salesforce.com and presenting through a complete business view. Lucidics is combining the power of Juice with their experience analyzing and managing sales environments to rapidly produce customized sales operations support."
