ZINFI Acquires Multiple New Enterprise Customers for Its Industry-Leading Unified Channel Management Solutions and Grows Software Revenue by 72%
Pleasanton, CA — January 15, 2018 — ZINFI Technologies, Inc., a company leading the definition and creation of Unified Channel Management (UCM) solutions, today announced it has ended 2017 with 72% revenue growth in its software business and a significant increase in profitability as the result of multiple new customer acquisitions and renewals of existing software and services contracts. In addition to expanding its customer base, ZINFI also won several major industry innovation awards for its industry-leading partner relationship management (PRM) and partner marketing management (PMM) solutions.
Among other accomplishments, ZINFI expanded its global presence in 2017 to provide in-country multilingual support around the world. Currently ZINFI supports English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Spanish for the European market, and Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese languages for the Asia Pacific market. ZINFI is the only channel management software vendor that currently provides deep channel concierge capabilities in all key countries around the world with an in-country, “boots on the ground” presence.
“It’s been another great year, and the results speak directly to our companywide commitment to making our customers successful,” said Sugata Sanyal, ZINFI’s founder and CEO. “Through our Customer Linked Innovation & Creation (CLIC) process we introduced more than 600 new innovations to our platform in 2017. We also expanded our global footprint with the introduction of in-country concierge resources in five major countries in Europe. ZINFI’s Unified Channel Management (UCM) platform is redefining how the industry approaches channel management, and established competitors are now turning to acquisitions in their struggle to keep pace.”
In 2017 ZINFI won the following major industry awards:
- Red Herring North America Award for most exciting and innovative 100 private technology companies
- Golden Bridge Awards (silver), New Products and Services – Cloud Computing/SaaS/Internet category
- One Planet Awards (bronze), New Product or Service of the Year category
- Stevie® Award (bronze), New Product or Service of the Year category
ZINFI has garnered recognition from major analyst firms as well. In its Partner Relationship Management 2017 report analyzing the PRM marketplace, SiriusDecisions, a major analyst firm, noted that ZINFI’s PRM software platform is well-positioned to address channel globalization, with “the greatest footprint outside of North America of all the pure-play PRM vendors evaluated. In addition, ZINFI’s platform natively supports more languages and currencies than the other platforms.”
The Sirius report also praises ZINFI’s focus on integration with other channel management automation systems, offering “discrete PRM, CMM and CSM platforms that also can be seamlessly integrated. This positions ZINFI as the only vendor with a native platform across these three core application areas.” The report also highlights ZINFI’s “simple, all-inclusive pricing approach [which] provides a very strong competitive advantage. Other solutions, which charge by license or user, can get very expensive as the supplier’s partner ecosystem grows.” To access the full SiriusDecisions SiriusView report on partner relationship management platforms, click here.
