ZINFI's Unified Channel Management solution comprises of three core channel solutions -- partner relationship management, partner marketing management and partner sales management. ZINFI has been first to market with an integrated end-to-end channel management platform, driving both vision and execution world-wide. Organizations are now deploying, or considering, an integrated approach to their channel management needs, ZINFI creates a seamless approach to organizations selling through the channel by providing a comprehensive solution.

In a recently released report, SiriusDecisions, a major analyst firm, notes that the ZINFI partner relationship management application is well-positioned to address channel globalization, with "the greatest footprint outside of North America of all the pure-play PRM vendors evaluated. In addition, ZINFI's platform natively supports more languages and currencies than the other platforms." The report also praises ZINFI's focus on integration with other channel management automation systems, offering "discrete PRM, CMM and CSM platforms that also can be seamlessly integrated. This positions ZINFI as the only vendor with a native platform across these three core application areas." In addition, the report highlights ZINFI's "simple, all-inclusive pricing approach [which] provides a very strong competitive advantage. Other solutions, which charge by license or user, can get very expensive as the supplier's partner ecosystem grows."
