Interesting Points:

Mary Melcher is also listed as an officer of Stratix Solutions Group, Inc., Stratix Electronics, LLC, Team Performance Products, LLC, BWTF, LLC

It is unclear if the company is a marketing company or has extensive experience in delivering the services listed.

The Stratix website does not appear to have any information on it regarding program performance, fees, or a publicly available client agreement.

BBB Reviews & Ratings:

The BBB currently gives the company an A rating. – Source


None found. But if this company was a marketing company and farming out the service to others, complaints would be under the name of other companies.
