ZINFI Technologies, Inc., a leading definition and creation company of unified channel management (UCM) solutions and a leader in omnichannel marketing automation and partner relationship management (PRM), today announced the launch of a complete suite of affiliate marketing Management (AMM) solution as part of its UCM platform.
The newly released Affiliate Marketing Management (AMM) feature will allow companies to promote their brands and drive referrals and lead generation for their products and services through a globally distributed affiliate network. Today, most organizations selling globally are dealing with a mixed network of partners, including non-transactional partners such as consultants, influencers and brand promoters, and transactional partners such as resellers, distributors and agents. Any market-leading workflow automation platform must have core capabilities related to managing a hybrid partner base.
ZINFI’s UCM platform now includes the following affiliate marketing management (AMM) modules:
- market – With this module, brands and suppliers can easily create private and captive marketplaces to allow their ecosystem partners to offer end-to-end solutions to their customer base. The module also allows end users and buyers to find a complementary set of partners to deploy solutions ranging from simple to complex.
- Promotion Management – Promoting a brand to an audience is the core value added that an affiliate can bring to an organization. However, brands must create effective content and distribute it. This module allows members to leverage the power of a distributed ecosystem to deliver effective marketing and promotions.

This module supports registration referrals and link referral tracking via Urchin Traffic Monitor (UTM), both of which are critical for performance management and tracking.
- Payment management – While the job of affiliates is to effectively promote brands to their network through promotions and tools provided by suppliers, rewarding partners financially is critical to the development of a healthy and profitable network. Tax management and payment management are the core functions of this module.
