Salesboom Says Salesforce.com Bullying Rivals: Salesboom vs Goliath.

— Halifax, NS, Canada-
Salesboom.com, industry leading on demand Cloud CRM system & ERP provider has released parts of legal
documents exchanged between Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) and its direct
competitor, Salesboom Inc. In the documents, Salesforce.com senior Vice
President and former General Counsel David Schellhase openly accuses
Salesboom, on more than one occasion, of attempting to "trade off the
goodwill created by salesforce.com" citing the similarities of the two
companies' names. Salesboom President Rami Hamodah responded, denouncing
the Salesforce.com accusation as an "absurd statement" and stating that
SFDC appears to be engaging in "intimidation practices". The documents go
on to further accuse Salesboom of attempting to trade off the goodwill
created by salesforce.com through various industry-standard terms, such
as the Hosted Model employing an intrinsic "Zero Software Promise". These
documents reveal a menacing side of Salesforce.com not previously seen
in the Hosted Cloud CRM market.
"To say that this letter has proven that even a company the size of
Salesforce.com isn't beyond reproach is an understatement", commented Rami
Hamodah, President and Co-founder of Salesboom. "The fact that such a
prominent Salesforce.com executive like Mr. Schellhase has the audacity
to accuse Salesboom of any wrong doing; creates the impression that the
document is being used as a way to bully smaller competition out of the Cloud
CRM space. If Salesforce.com and others want to wage corporate warfare,
be my guest, but Salesboom does not intend to be drawn, nor bullied,
into an unsubstantiated argument. Rather we pledge to continue our long-standing
Salesboom has since documented continued incidents of Salesforce.com employees
misrepresenting their information in an attempt to gain access to the
Salesboom system, a direct violation of the Salesboom Terms and
Conditions of using the Salesboom.com service. In a Salesboom rebuttal
to the Salesforce.com allegations, Salesboom finds "it very disturbing
that an organization of the size and stature of Salesforce.com be
condoning such disgraceful business activities", and feels that "it is
against the goodwill continually shared between all other friendly
competition in this explosive market space."

documents in question, interested parties are asked to contact Salesboom
