Flexco, a leading manufacturer of products and solutions used to improve conveyor belt productivity, engaged Movéo to launch its Partners Plus initiative. Flexco wanted to recruit upper tier, well-positioned distributors. The company planned to provide specialized training and elite certification for this select group, improving incremental revenue.

In the short term, Movèo targeted a larger group of distributors with incentives to join the program.
