Zift Solutions, a leading provider of channel marketing automation solutions, today announced that it was identified as a Strong Performer in Through-Channel Marketing Automation by Forrester Research, Inc. in its independent report: The Forrester Wave™: Through-Channel Marketing Automation Platforms, Q3 2015. In this Forrester Wave evaluation, Forrester’s first of TCMA platform vendors, Zift received the highest score among all vendors in the Technology category and was cited for its deep integration capabilities involving partners’ applications in addition to being named as a Strong Performer in the emerging TCMA market.

“What sets Zift apart in the TCMA vendor landscape is a commitment to transparently integrating its TCMA solutions into the partner’s application landscape,” stated Forrester in the report. “This lowers the barrier to action and drives partner engagement above the average of 20%”

“We believe that our position as a Strong Performer and highest score among all vendors in the Technology category of this Forrester Wave Report validates why nearly 10,000 channel partner organizations around the globe, representing over 50 vendors, already rely on Zift Solutions for Through-Channel Marketing Automation,” said Ken Romley, CEO of Zift Solutions. “We also feel that Forrester recognized the vital importance and impact of injecting marketing and sales tools directly into the systems partners currently use and enjoy.”

Designed to help B2B marketing professionals identify the top vendor candidates for through-channel marketing programs, The Forrester Wave Report evaluates currently available TCMA platforms, identifies significant vendors in the marketplace, and analyzes products according to 20 criteria garnered from interactions with B2B marketing professionals.
