Agency investigations. Disgruntled employees. Hostile customers. If you’re like most retailers, the threat of litigation is something you contend with regularly. With a pandemic still running rampant while stores reopen, many retailers are looking for software solutions to protect them from potential lawsuits.

Unfortunately, more than half of retail companies still use manual methods – like email and spreadsheets – to track compliance and (in the event of a pending investigation) conduct a legal hold. This approach is time-consuming at best, and unnecessarily risky at worst. 

Think about it: Would you trust a District Manager to keep copies of all of their correspondence with a store? Do you really know if a store manager read those new policy changes?

Fortunately, Retail Zipline is designed to reduce risk and save retailers money by shortening investigations, providing a single source of truth, making it easy to demonstrate compliance, and substantially reducing the likelihood of being hit with huge fines or difficult lawsuits.

Everything is preserved.

Zipline’s infrastructure, systems, and data management procedures are compliant with legal holds at all times. That’s because all data entered into the system – such as group messages, file uploads, tasks, assessments, and more – is preserved throughout the lifetime of a customer’s contract. Backups of the application database are taken daily.

Everything is tracked.

Fully auditable event logs are kept of all actions and events in the application (like when a task was created, when it was completed, or when a Resource Library item was uploaded, and who it was uploaded by.) This audit log exists independently of the database, ensuring it cannot be changed or tampered with by a Zipline user or support personnel.

You can rest easy.

Retail Zipline does not have any data disposal processes in place for the lifetime of the customer contact. Data is retained for a further two years after the contract has ended, to assist with security incidents or legal investigations which the customer may become aware of after terminating use of the service.

What is a UTM and what does this form do?

A UTM is a set of parameters added to a link that tells Google Analytics how that visitor got to our site. And this form helps you make one!

Don't forget, whatever you fill in here will be seen by whoever you share the link with, so be sure not put anything in here that wouldn't necessarily be obvious or worse, could be insulting; ex. don't make the 'campaign' tier-3-prospects.

Please be sure to use all lower case, and dashes-instead-of-spaces.

If there is a gated version (behind a form fill), you will be able to select the gated or ungated (direct to the content) link.

Most common Zipline sources are:

  • linkedin
  • salesloft
  • paid
  • sales
  • qr-code
  • newsletter

The 'Source' is where the traffic is coming from, or the referrer.

Most common Zipline medium are:

  • social
  • email
  • banner
  • sem
  • event

Medium describe 'how' the traffic is coming to the site. So for example, clicks from LinkedIn or Twitter are coming through social media, so we simply call it 'social'. Another example is for email newsletter or direct sales email, the medium would be 'email'.

Current campaigns include:

  • zipline360
  • retail-talent
  • nrf
  • abm
  • holiday-comms

The campaign is an internal description of whichever campaign the link is a part of. Are you promoting an event like NRF? use 'nrf'. Maybe it's part of a new marketing campaign, then use the name of that campaign!

Term is optional, but can be used if there is a keyword associated with where you're sharing the link. This parameter is generally used to identify the search term used to find a paid ad for example.

Content is a good parameter to use when you are sharing multiple links from the same source/medium. If you have the same link in two different LinkedIn posts, you could use 'content' to differentiate based on the thumbnail used, or time of day. For example, 'Content' could be 'wed-afternoon' and 'thurs-morning' to describe when it was posted, or 'platform-thumbnail' or 'man-holding-clipboard' to describe the image associated with the link.
