IMS has one objective for our member businesses; increase sales while saving you cash. To make sure that your business continues to grow through our barter network, we actively market your goods and services to our international community of member companies. Additionally, we provide our members with access to IMS' exclusive online marketplace for you to sell your products without the cost of building your own ecommerce presence. These tools make it easy for other member companies to find your goods and services while saving cash themselves.
IMS strives to be a brand new revenue stream for your company. Our member companies are loyal and understand the value of doing business through trade and turn first to other members to purchase goods and services. Becoming a member opens these new opportunities while saving you cash in return.
Trading your goods and services is not just for small companies! With IMS’ Corporate Barter division, we provide effective ways to liquidate excess inventory or resources on a large scale.
Because barter sales are the same as cash sales in the accounting world, IMS provides the appropriate record keeping, and makes available to you an online account where you can view your sales and purchases 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. IMS will send you a monthly statement for your records, and even send the applicable IRS forms each year.
" “TechAnalysts was introduced to IMS Barter several years ago. It was probably one of the best business & marketing decisions we’ve made. IMS Barter has been an excellent source of referral business that we otherwise may not have had an opportunity to receive. During our slower times, we’ve been able to generate trade business instead of having our staff idle. Anytime we need to make a purchase, we check with our IMS trade broker to see if what we need is provided by an IMS member. We have also generated business from referrals given to us by happy IMS members to businesses who were not part of IMS – these referrals paid in cash and not trade. If you are a business of any kind, we would highly recommend learning about IMS to better understand how IMS and trade can become part of your business and marketing mix.”"
