ZINFI Releases New Complimentary Best Practices Guide on Partner Onboarding
New guidebook offers a comprehensive overview of Partner Onboarding and provides readers with step-by-step guidance to partner onboarding using channel marketing management software
ZINFI Technologies, Inc., the leader in Unified Channel Management (UCM) solutions encompassing partner relationship management (PRM) and through-channel marketing automation, announced that its latest guidebook, the Partner Onboarding Best Practices Guide, is now available as a complimentary downloadable eBook. The guidebook is aimed at individuals and organizations interested in bringing a structured approach to developing a partner onboarding program that targets and enables high-potential partners quickly, keeps them engaged and helps them succeed over the long term.
The Partner Onboarding Best Practices Guide has two main parts.
- Part I provides an overview of partner onboarding, with an emphasis on streamlining and automating complex processes using purpose-built channel marketing management software. Topics include onboarding affiliate partners, overcoming challenges with the use of a partner relationship management tool and evaluating onboarding software. Several chapters offer step-by-step guidance in aligning onboarding practices with business strategy and partner types.
- Part II of the guidebook is a detailed look at Unified Channel Management (UCM), a rigorously integrated approach to channel automation that helps organizations align channel policies, channel people, business process automation and channel partners to build a high-performing global channel. Part II begins with a definition of UCM, provides an overview of core and expanded modules for channel marketing automation, and describes in detail platforms for affiliate marketing management (AMM), partner relationship management (PRM), partner marketing management (PMM) and partner incentives management (PIM).
