CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/10 -- ForceLogix Inc. (www.forcelogix.com) (TSX-V: FLT), leaders in Sales Management Optimization solutions delivered via the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, announced that Lenovo, one of the world's largest makers of personal computers, has successfully deployed the ForceLogix SalesForce Optimizer solution to evaluate, coach and develop their sales team. Lenovo joins the growing list of customers that have deployed the ForceLogix platform, SalesForce Optimizer, including Corning, Motorola, Savvis and Quintiles.

Mark Smith, Executive Vice President of research firm Ventana in San Mateo, California said ForceLogix is part of a new wave of companies offering software that lets sales managers measure, coach and optimize salespeople toward better performance.
