SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) -   Selectica (NASDAQ: SLTC), provider of software that accelerates sales cycles and streamlines contract processes, has been recognized as a finalist in the 4th Annual 2012 Golden Bridge Awards in the Best New SaaS or Cloud Computing category for its Selectica Guided Selling cloud-based offering.

"Selectica Guided Selling empowers growing companies and their sales channels to accurately map customer needs to their solutions, and protect margins by enforcing pricing and approval policies," said Kamal Ahluwalia, Chief Strategy Officer at Selectica. "We're honored to have the Golden Bridge Awards acknowledge our mission to deliver this patented, cloud-based sales technology to a broader market." 

Introduced to the public in February 2012, Selectica Guided Selling is patented configure-price-quote (CPQ) software that can be integrated with Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) to take users end-to-end, from configuration to quote to contract. Using Selectica Guided Selling, companies can easily define and maintain rules to guide the sales process. Once rules are in place, sales teams can configure deals using a step-by-step selection interface, powered by a declarative constraint engine that dynamically includes or eliminates choices based on user input.

The annual Golden Bridge Awards are an industry and peer recognition program honoring the best companies of all types and sizes worldwide in categories such as Best Products, Innovations, Management and Teams, Women in Business and the Professions, and PR and Marketing Campaigns. Winners will be honored in San Francisco, California on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 during the fourth annual awards dinner and presentation.
