Impartner Software | December 29, 2022

Impartner, a provider of channel management and partner relationship management (PRM) software, has announced partnerships with iPaaS providers Syncari and Tray.io to improve the accuracy of partner data in its PRM system. Through these partnerships, Impartner's customers will be able to sync and standardize partner data more easily between different systems. This will lead to more transparency and better decision-making. These integrations will provide a central entry point for all PRM activity and increase the value of connectivity within an organization's technology infrastructure. With Syncari and Tray.io, Impartner will be able to improve the accuracy of partner data across multiple integrations and update partner information in real time.

ZINFI Technologies | December 21, 2022

ZINFI Technologies, Inc., the leader in Unified Channel Management (UCM) solutions encompassing partner relationship management (PRM) and through-channel marketing automation, today announced that G2.com, Inc., the largest software marketplace, has again named ZINFI as a "Leader" in the Fall 2022 G2 Grid Report for Partner Management Software. ZINFI has earned a position in G2's leaders' quadrant in multiple consecutive quarters dating back to 2019. G2 rates products and vendors based on reviews gathered from its user community and aggregate data from online sources and social networks. The G2 Satisfaction Score is calculated using a proprietary algorithm that factors in real-user satisfaction ratings from review data, taking into account factors like the recency of a review, the amount of feedback provided, attribution, whether the reviewer is a current user and community engagement with the review. "Once again, ZINI's customers have spoken loudly and clearly, and they're saying they love using our platform and are grateful for the services and the responsive support we provide, While we have consistently performed at a very high level over a period of several years in G2's ratings across all of their criteria, we never take success for granted. We read every G2 review, and we are constantly incorporating feedback and input from our customers through a variety of channels as we plan product improvements for the future.

Sugata Sanyal, founder & CEO of ZINFI ZINFI is used as the portal platform for working with one of our main business partners. Use of the portal is efficient, effective, and very user-friendly. I personally make use of the "Content Library" feature very frequently. The platform makes it easy to find content and view documents and even play videos directly on the platform. The features on the platform have assisted me in training and educating myself, keeping me up to date on the products from our partner. I also make frequent use of the portal to find reference material and support documentation when supporting clients on the use of the products. Another major use of the portal is to use the resources provided to plan for future projects, especially with large implementations and upgrades of the partner products. I would recommend ZINFI as it makes the use of the portal possible.
