Channel Data Management: Zyme Validates the Dominance and Leadership of its Cloud-Based Solution

Aug 19, 2015

Superior Channel Visibility, More Complete and Accurate Data, Larger Global Footprint, Instant Data Validation, Faster Channel Dataflow Feedback, Greater Scalability and Availability, Stronger Security, Lower Cost of Ownership, and Better Overall ROI – Only from Zyme

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – August 19, 2015 – Zyme, the leader in the rapidly-growing channel data management (CDM) industry, has now captured more than 70% of the market among those global companies that have invested in third-party CDM solutions, and has established a global footprint almost 10 times the size of the next largest CDM company.

Real-world business results from Zyme implementations include an average 5% annual channel revenue growth among Zyme customers, reduced incentive overpayments of 15%, data error reduction of 98% within 90 days, time-to-pay partners reduced by 54%, time needed to create sales reports cut by 40%, and a 52% drop in inventory required on hand due to greater channel efficiencies. In addition, Zyme users have a tenfold increase in the ability to course correct by leveraging the accuracy and granularity of intelligence delivered through the Zyme CDM solution.

“It’s easy for our smaller rivals to make overstated claims about their capabilities related to channel data management,” said Ted Dimbero, Co-Founder and Chief Customer Officer (CCO) at Zyme. “But when manufacturers who are serious about optimizing the performance of their indirect sales channels take the time to thoroughly evaluate Zyme’s cloud-based CDM solution in comparison to other offerings, the superior business benefits and measurable results produced by Zyme are easy to see.”
