Saving cash is easy. After your business becomes a member, simply shop and save with your trade dollars and keep your cash in the bank.
It’s barter, just much bigger and way better.
The international IMS Barter network has 16,000 member businesses, allowing your company to conduct business-to-business trading for goods and services outside of your normal markets. This gives you the opportunity to purchase goods and services for your business using trade dollars, instead of cash. Which means your business can save cash on normal business expenses like printing, repairs and improvements, professional services, travel, office equipment, corporate gifts, company meetings, and much more, by spending your earned trade dollars instead.
And, because you are earning trade dollars on your goods and services at normal everyday selling prices, you are able to turn those earnings around to purchase items at your wholesale cost!
Here’s how that works: You buy your widget for $80 each. You sell your widget for $169 each. This sale price is true in both the cash and trade worlds. Which means, when you spend $169 trade dollars, you have already saved $89 cash!
"We started with IMS when we owned one hotel, and now have eleven. They have been a fabulous business partner for moving unsold inventory. Each time we buy and build another hotel, we add IMS as another marketing dimension for the hotel."
