Zyme Extends Its Dominance in Channel Data Management

No Other CDM Solution Surpasses Zyme in Global Reach, Speed of Data Collection, Flexibility, Scalability, Accuracy of Data, Quality of Support, and Return on Investment

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Zyme, the leader in the rapidly expanding discipline of Channel Data Management (CDM), continues to win the confidence and loyalty of some of the world's most successful technology companies with a fast, flexible, massively scalable global platform precisely tailored for their channels.

"Major players in the tech space are moving to Zyme for Smarter Channel Data Management, in part because of our speed and sheer global scale," said Ken Edwards, VP of Professional Services at Zyme. "When you look at the number of transactions that our platform processes every day, the quantity of unique channel partners connected into the Zyme environment, the range of countries where we are collecting data, and the velocity at which we are able to collect, validate, and enrich data, there simply is no equal to Zyme."

Analyst profiles on the vendors that offer off-the-shelf Channel Data Management solutions show that Zyme is more entrenched than all others, with a global directory of 750,000 reporting channel partners in over 200 countries, and collecting more than 20,000 data feeds per week. When compared to the capabilities of other channel data management companies, only Zyme can deliver the global scale, guaranteed data accuracy, and lightning fast speed that large enterprises require.

As an added benefit to its customers, Zyme is establishing the first of several global channel data service centers, where skilled data stewards are providing deep channel expertise with local language support and regional business knowledge to deliver data validation and enrichment. This includes data refinements such as granular identification of precise sold-to and ship-to locations, and resolution of any language and local practice-based discrepancies that competitive channel data products merely reject or ignore. Zyme's unique solutions ensure the highest possible accuracy for POS transaction records and the industry's only guaranteed channel data quality of service levels. The first new Zyme facility is opening in Shanghai, China, with future locations planned for Europe and Latin America.

"Leading manufacturers of computer systems, networking, communications, storage, peripherals, and telecom are decommissioning their channel management software solutions previously purchased from other vendors, and migrating to Zyme," Edwards said. "In some cases, Zyme has demonstrated the ability to collect and process more transactions in one day than other platforms were able to process in a week. For today's global OEMs, only Zyme has the ability to deliver the scale, speed, accuracy, and reliability they need to optimize the efficiency and profitability of their extended channels."

Enterprises are continually working to eliminate inefficiencies, reduce costs, and drive additional revenue through their channels. The Zyme solution helps them achieve this by improving the immediacy and accuracy of sales and inventory data to more effectively measure current sales and balance the flow of inventory. Channel managers get closer to the edge of the channel and determine who is buying their products, why they are buying, what needs to be done to move more inventory, and how buyers can be influenced in increasingly positive ways. Retailers, resellers, and value-added integrators have a significant influence on what is ultimately sold. Zyme enables channel sales people to identify, monitor, incentivize, and assist channel partners to close more deals and drive higher revenues.

"Zyme customers are posting meaningful returns on investment from our solution," Edwards added. "Their salespeople are uncovering revenue opportunities sooner by monitoring and nurturing individual opportunities -- and preventing potential lost revenue before they lose it from resellers who are declining or switching allegiances. Financial managers are on the lookout for nonproductive incentive costs -- and since this is a trillion dollar industry, that can mean many millions in marketing cost savings. There's also a compelling ROI associated with reducing inventory risk, both for write-offs and stock-outs, providing a powerful upside for cash flows and balance sheets. Industry analysts who have interviewed Zyme customers have discovered that a potent ROI is being realized -- conservatively 200 percent per year by one customer, and even higher for others."

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
