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."

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances.

This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
