Ansira is thrilled to be named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Channel Incentive Management, Q1 2022.

“Ansira solves complex challenges for brands that operate in a distributed ecosystem, inclusive of both transacting and non-transacting partners with varying incentive constructs,” said Ansira President and Chief Revenue Officer Andy Arnold. “We believe our recognition as a Strong Performer in this report, coupled with our recognition as a Leader in Through-Channel Marketing Automation, further validates our work supporting clients from the enterprise level to the local level.”

The Forrester Wave™: Channel Incentive Management, Q1 2022 evaluates channel incentive management providers to help channel professionals select the right one for their needs. Ansira was among 11 companies invited to participate in Forrester’s independent analysis, which assesses providers based on their current offering, strategy, and market presence. For inclusion in the report, Forrester required providers to have enterprise market transaction, revenue totaling at least $10 million, a best-of-breed product available for purchase, and Forrester client interest. In addition, each provider had to have their product in use by at least 30 global customers, three of which were surveyed for the final assessment. Ansira received the highest scores possible in six criteria, including the channel performance and incentives types, and the supporting products and services criterion.
