The customized solution integrates with Microsoft’s CRM to help marketers manage lead distribution, share marketing assets and view insights into partners’ deals. It also incorporates partner onboarding and business analytics.
“PRM solutions provide companies with a nerve center for managing and optimizing their channel sales ecosystem in the same way that CRM facilitates direct sales,” said Ariel Katz, General Manager of Dynamics 365 for Sales. “Impartner PRM provides scale for companies who increasingly turn to the indirect channel as the growth driver for their business.
