Channel incentive company 360insights and enterprise channel management organization Zift Solutions have announced a strategic partnership that will integrate their offerings with an eye toward creating a more comprehensive platform for running programs aimed at channel-sales reps.
The alliance will include the integration of 360insights' Channel Success Platform with ZiftONE platform, creating what Zift Solutions CEO Gordon Rapkin expects will "help our customers optimize their channel incentive program strategy, tactics and spending to boost partner program performance and ROI."
