Comprehensive reporting about community engagement also keeps channel organizations abreast of partner involvement. Zift Community sites enhance the Zift customer social experience by supplementing technical know-how with strategic vision and peer communication. Customers can use Zift Communities to listen, learn from, and engage with fellow customers as well as channel partners, share input on software development, examine channel insights and trends, as well as distribute educational materials.
