Callidus Software Inc. Q2 2010 Earnings Call Transcript
We also signed six multi-year contracts, including renewal of one of our largest on-demand lines, who made a three-year irrevocable commitment at a total contract value of approximately $16.5 million. Four other customers made multi-year commitments in excess of $1 million.

We are carefully monitoring go-live dates, to ensure that we begin to recognize revenue as early as feasible. Even with these challenges, I am pleased to report that we had one of our best consulting bookings quarter in the recent times. Read the rest of this transcript for free on seekingalpha.com
