Create a true partnership.

How can you grow your market share in the face of accelerated timelines, smaller budgets and fierce competition? The goal is clear, but the challenges are tough. When it comes to influencing channel representatives to sell more of your product, channel loyalty programs based on transactions are just a temporary solution. It’s far more effective and cost efficient to transform your reps into genuine advocates for your products and services.

More than three-fourths of channel representatives, managers, and owners believe manufacturer incentive programs greatly influence their interest in and desire to sell their brands.    — Maritz Channel Market Study

Our programs help global companies segment their channel reps, continually measure engagement among both high performers and at-risk representatives, and provide individually relevant rewards, incentives, and recognition experiences. That personal touch is the way to increase performance, loyalty and market share.
