Austin, TX – January 25, 2018 – E2open, the one place in the cloud to run your supply chain, today announced that it has acquired Channel Data Management (CDM) providers, Birch Worldwide and Entomo. These acquisitions further strengthen E2open’s CDM capabilities, providing organizations the most comprehensive platform in the market to improve sales channel performance.
Birch Worldwide, a leading channel incentives solution provider, maximizes the effective use of market development fund (MDF), co-op and channel rebate programs for customers like Polycom, Symantec and Unify, an Atos company. With the addition of Birch’s deep market presence across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, E2open is uniquely positioned as a global and dominant player in Smart Incentives Management.
Entomo, a leader in channel revenue management, serves customers including Brother, Targus, Kingston Technology and Qorvo. Entomo adds more CDM capabilities to ingest CRM data, manage pricing, incentives, rebates, and commission splits. This enables companies to reduce channel conflict and easily manage sales performance plans.
With Birch Worldwide and Entomo’s solutions closely aligned to those from Zyme, companies will gain the ability to leverage decision-grade data to further optimize on capital deployed in the channel, deliver increasingly predictable ROI, and focus on channel performance optimization.
