ZINFI Releases Latest "Feet on the Street" Video Podcast on Partner Ecosystems Featuring Asher Mathew, CEO and Co-Founder of Partnership Leaders

PR Newswire | May 31, 2023

ZINFI Technologies, Inc., the leader in Unified Channel Management (UCM) solutions that include affiliate marketing management (AMM), partner relationship management (PRM), partner marketing management (PMM) and partner incentives management (PIM), today announced the release of its latest "Feet on the Street" educational video podcast focused on partner ecosystems. "Elevating Partnership Leaders and Pioneering the Science of Partnering" features special guest Asher Mathew, CEO and co-founder of Partnership Leaders, and ZINFI CEO and founder Sugata Sanyal engaged in a lively discussion of partner leadership as well as industry trends and strategies for building high-functioning partner networks. The four-chapter video podcast series – which is now available on demand from the ZINFI website – begins with an account by Mathews of the history of the origins of Partnership Leaders, an international team and ecosystem of more than 1,800 members whose mission is to elevate the role of partnership professionals and strengthen partnership teams. "We view ourselves as a platform for success rather than just a community," says Mathews. "We really take this seriously." Chapter 1 of the series, "Pioneering the Science of Partnering: Rethinking Operations & Strategies for Success," builds on research Partnership Leaders conducted in collaboration with HubSpot and Canalys on the current state of partner operations. An important insight that emerged from that research is that most organizations, even some of the smallest companies, are managing multiple partner types. This means, according to Mathews, "a partner organization needs to be dialed in on what their ideal partner profile is and do that research work upfront, and then really go into defining why they're partnering and what value they can generate." In Chapter 2 of the series, "Scaling SaaS Companies: When & How to Build a Partner Network for Optimal Growth," Mathews and Sanyal discuss how organizations can determine when they are ready to begin establishing a partner network and what to consider as they begin to identify potential recruiting targets and develop a framework for partner programs. Chapter 3, "Community-Based Learning Model to Empower Next-Gen Partnership Leaders," features an in-depth exploration of Partnership Leaders' work to understand in detail the characteristics of great partner leaders, great partner programs and high-functioning strategic partnerships. In the final chapter of the video podcast series, "Empowering Partner Ecosystems through Collaboration, Loyalty and Automation," Sanyal and Mathews wrap up the discussion with a vision for success in partner operations where partner leaders are held accountable, just like other members of the leadership team, and where vendor organizations have a detailed understanding of what motivates their partner base, how to build loyalty among partners, and how to use automation, AI and analytics to ensure long-term growth.
