Partner Compliance

Optimize partner relationships and drive incremental revenue

In digital channels, partners can create a multiplier effect for brands by driving new customers and web traffic to generate additional revenue. However, partners – including affiliates, franchisees, independent representatives and dealers – may engage in non-compliant activity online by misusing trademarks, logos and branding in their promotional efforts. Misuse, intentional or not, and cost you legitimate sales, erode your brand, siphon away traffic, confuse your customers, and drive up advertising costs.

OpSec Online Partner Compliance enables brands to identify, prioritize and quickly remediate non-compliant partner activity across the Internet, protecting brand value, increasing profit margins and defending against legal and regulatory liability.

Maintain partner relationships to expand reach in digital channels

Brands have become increasingly reliant on partners such as dealers, franchisees and affiliates, to expand their reach into digital channels, but partners that inadvertently misuse your brand assets can cause channel conflict, increase marketing costs and drain profits. Keeping partners brand compliant is a critical activity, but it requires a different approach than with intentional infringers. Maintaining valuable partner relationships while holding partners accountable can be a difficult balancing act.
