There’s so much we can learn about partnership relationship management from lions. For lions, teamwork is crucial. Every time a fight arises, the pride that stays united and makes the most of all the talents and resources of its members comes out on top.
Much like a partnership team, the strength of the pride is greater than the total combined power of its individual members.
Additionally, the success of the group also depends on each member being proactive and keeping their ears open. Teams that communicate not only verbally but also on each other's frequency can be very successful.
This is why our exciting new update is so aptly named the Lion Release. Much like our King of the Jungle, the new features encourage seamless communication, teamwork, and efficiency.

As mentioned above, our new features seek to emulate the synergy and productivity of a pride of lions. Let’s learn more about the new features and how they improve your ability to manage partnerships.
As part of our commitment to giving you the best value for your unique partnership needs, our pricing plans have changed to be more inclusive of the evolution of programs.
Initially, our plans were limited to Accelerate and Scale Plans. Now, our new pricing includes the Starter, Scale, and Unlimited Plans.
New customers can now choose from one of the three plans, each of which includes access to all of Kiflo’s features.
If you’re just starting your partner program, then the Starter Plan is perfect for you. For $149 per month, you can add 5 partners and an unlimited number of users.
If you’re looking for a step up, the Scale Plan is for you. You get an unlimited number of users and up to 25 partners (with the option to add more) for $399.
For our partner program veterans, we have the Unlimited Plan. For $699, you get unlimited partners and users.
For more information, check out our pricing page.
One thing we may have forgotten to mention is that lions are very efficient hunters. They kill every three to four days, depending on the opportunities available to them and how much they ate at their last meal. To do this, the lion’s powerful roar is a signal to other pride members to join the hunt.
Just like the lion, this new feature is all about efficiency and communication. Bulk Team Member Invitations allow you to send invites in bulk by allowing you to select multiple members at the same time.
Simply click on the Partners tab, select Team Members from the drop-down menu, select all the team members you want to invite, and send the link.
To see sent, pending, and expired partner team member invitations
To track who to follow up on or who needs invitations resent
To analyze and report data, including the status of the invitation, when it was sent/accepted, and when the Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) were accepted
Did you know that lions understand the concept of roles? Each lion occupies certain roles within the pride. The male lions must create enough territory for their lionesses to hunt and raise their young in peace. This makes the pride very successful.
To emulate this, our read-only coworkers is a security feature that protects data from intentional or accidental deletion or modification. Originally, when you invited co-workers, they all became admins and shared the same permissions, and could see the same data on Kiflo.
Now we have added a feature that lets you change permissions for specific users.
To organize teams based on roles and responsibilities
To protect account data and status, and avoid human error
You can use the partner T&C feature to ensure new users of the partner portal accept your guidelines and requirements. This feature helps you make sure that each individual in the partnership team is aligned. Add terms and conditions that suit your specific partnership needs alongside Kiflo's.
Just click on the Partner Program, scroll down to Terms & Conditions, and click edit to make it mandatory for that particular partner to accept the conditions.
To make your partners agree on different requirements, like how the data is stored or what you will do with the data
To set out what is expected of partners in terms of usage of the partner portal
The redesigned Help Page is without a doubt one of the best aspects of this new update. It is the place to go for answers to your queries and solutions to some of your difficulties.
The layout is well-organized and well-presented, making it simple to navigate the site and locate what you're looking for.

Mass Validate Payouts: Paying partners one by one can be tricky. Now you can create multiple payments and validate them in bulk.
Send Lead URL Templates: Each partner has access to a unique lead form and URL. You can now send the URL in an email to inform new partners that they can use it to send leads.
Create Notes on Customers: In the same way that you can create notes on leads and deals, you can now do so for customers, as well.
Manage Lead Statuses: When a partner submits a lead, you can now accept the lead if it was rejected. You can also reject it if it was accepted and re-open it if it was abandoned.
