“Building a high-performing channel is not an easy task. Just like building a high-performing company, it starts with defining clear job-descriptions, recruiting the right talent and training and motivating them properly; the same level of commitment applies to building an indirect sales force, a.k.a. the channel,” said Sugata Sanyal, founder and CEO of ZINFI. “The great news is there are pre-defined steps that an organization selling through the channel can take to identify the right partners, approach them the right way and then recruit, onboard and manage them properly to optimize revenue to receive a better channel ROI. This webinar should not only provide a strategic framework for those organizations who are trying to build a new partner network, but also to those who are struggling to improve the productivity of their current partner base.”

In a recently released report, SiriusDecisions, 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 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.
