Redwood Shores, CA — Dec. 8, 2016 — Zyme, the market leader in the rapidly growing discipline of channel data management (CDM), today announced the addition of several new partners to the Zyme Connect Partner Program, including Perks, Steelwedge and Xactly. Global enterprises, ISVs and SIs can now leverage Zyme’s decision-grade channel data via zymeConnectSM APIs to seamlessly power best-in-class business applications for sales commissioning, partner incentives, demand planning, partner relationship management (PRM) and more.
Customers can now extend the zyme cloud platform 3.0 to other applications from Zyme Connect Partners, so that high-quality channel data can be accessed in a secure, on-demand and hassle-free manner, with lower integration costs. Zyme Connect Partners can offer their customers faster time-to-value, and minimize implementation costs and data integration effort. Importantly, enterprises can begin to realize the vision of a “single source of truth” for channel data across various mission-critical business processes. For example:
- Incentive Compensation Management (ICM) solutions can now include channel sales to calculate commissions accurately at a partner or sales-rep level
- Loyalty rewards solutions can now attribute rewards points accurately based on actual sales transaction data
- Partner portals can serve up validated rebate statements to partners, and map partner registration processes more accurately using Zyme’s Global Channel Directory
- Supply chain and demand planning teams can make decisions based on real-time, fully informed perspectives of demand and the inventory positions to serve it
These partners chose to join the Zyme Connect Partner Program because of Zyme’s leadership position in the CDM industry, amplifying the business value of their solutions for customers that sell through indirect channels. Zyme covers distributors and resellers in more than 150 countries and 15 languages, and is on track to process more than $175 billion in channel revenues and more than 1 billion transactions annually in 2016 for leading global manufacturers.
