Tailored for the high-tech industry, ChannelView gives sales teams visibility into the latest, most accurate point-of-sale (POS) data from channel partners worldwide – all within Salesforce.

“Salesforce.com has revolutionized how technology companies manage and share business information. Zyme’s ChannelView application further demonstrates the power of the Force.com platform in rapidly integrating and delivering channel data to our customers in the high-tech industry vertical,” said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer at salesforce.com.
Channel sales and marketing professionals can now securely track partners’ daily or weekly sales activities, link POS data to opportunities, and quickly identify new resellers or enterprise end-customers worldwide. Developed using Zyme’s extensive domain expertise with channel data in the technology industry, ChannelView makes it easier for companies using Salesforce CRM to communicate business-critical information to their field sales and marketing personnel.
“ChannelView will help our sales and marketing teams make better business decisions with readily available channel data, while maximizing our IT investments. Zyme was able to set up, test, and deploy ChannelView in a matter of weeks, with minimal requirements from our IT resources,” said Patrick Collins, vice-president IT at NETGEAR Inc.
Delivering accurate and timely channel POS data to sales teams can be a significant challenge.

POS data is automatically cleansed, enriched, aggregated and linked to the correct Salesforce accounts and products, improving the accuracy of the data and eliminating manual processes. ChannelView can also link the cleansed POS data to opportunities, and help keep track of sales activity.
“ChannelView delivers on our mission to provide customers with high-quality channel data when and where they need it. We are proud that technology leaders such as NETGEAR are using ChannelView on AppExchange 2 to drive greater visibility into channel sales activity,” said Ted Dimbero, senior vice president, Operations at Zyme.
