Weathering the Storm

A Message from the CEO of IMS

Since 1985, IMS has helped clients survive recessions, financial panics, wars, credit and liquidity issues, hurricanes, numerous global challenges, and now a pandemic. We have helped our clients weather these storms by leveraging their most immediate yet untapped financial resource, unsold inventory. We are here to help you navigate through these immediate and adverse conditions, and although we aren’t the final answer, we provide liquid asset diversification and deliver new revenue channels.

This business climate went from robust to delivering a knockout blow in what seemed to be almost a split second. Even the survival-of-the-fittest companies could not have been prepared, and most are facing severe challenges. In the short-term, fighting to protect your business can feel like an eternity, especially in these uncertain times. Yes, there will be setbacks; this pandemic has shown how interconnected and dependent this economy has become, and businesses must leverage themselves and adjust for risk.

It is time to take action and control the future direction of your business; to be creative, resourceful, innovative and opportunistic. We at IMS Barter play a part in stabilizing businesses in turbulent times, and that time is now.
