Asset Management Solutions
Products and Services:
One of the most challenging aspects within many industries is the ability to accurately forecast product demand. The shifts in demand created by frequent and unpredictable up and down turns of the business cycle invariably impact the balance of supply and demand. This imbalance is further compounded by ever shorter design and life cycles of products, creating additional risk and uncertainty as new programs rapidly move in and out of production. As each player within the supply chain attempts to adjust to these many factors, inventory misalignments are often created. The end result is that companies inevitably end up with excess, obsolete, and slow moving inventories, both at the components and finished goods level, that adversely impacts their profitability and return on assets.
Converting Non-Performing Assets into Cash
Inventory Management Partners has been adeptly managing clients’ Inactive, Excess & Obsolete (IOS) material for over 13 years. Over that period IMPartners has far outperformed the traditional E&O Liquidation/Broker model, returning some of the highest cash recoveries in the industry. Our asset management programs include:
- Revenue Sharing – Consignment Programs
- Liquidation Programs
- Custom Solutions
- Metals Recovery and Recycling Services

Customized Asset and Inventory Management Solutions
Proactive Non-Performing Asset Marketing
Market Analysis: At the outset of every Client engagement IMPartners conducts a detailed part by part market value analysis. We evaluate the following factors when establishing an estimated recovery value and suggested price for products.
- Manufacturing Part Number
- Standard Cost
- Current Market Price within the primary channels,
- Factory Lead Time
In addition to the above IMPartners evaluates subjective information related to current and historical demand trends and the current availability of your materials within the secondary and primary channels. Once all of these factors are considered, IMPartners meets with each client to review their standard costs and define by line item the recommended price.
100% Material Verification
IMPartners robust incoming inspection process includes validation of component counts, packaging inspection, verification and logging of material date codes, and a thorough review of product condition and quality. We then share our detailed assessment with our clients.
Optimized Product Value
IMPartners service and value proposition is to optimize the value recovered from IOS materials and product by aggressively marketing it globally through our network of Primary (OEM/EMS) and secondary (Independent Distributor) channels. Our unique channels and relationships enable IMPartners to return the highest possible revenue to our clients
We recognize that a key consideration of a client’s decision to partner with IMPartners is their trust and comfort in putting a valuable asset (inventory) in the hands of another organization. Over our history IMPartners has earned an exemplary reputation for honesty, integrity and accountability, fully aligned with our Client’s business goals and objectives
All of clients’ materials and products are visible and accessible through the IMPartners Website Portal. Using a secure User ID and password clients have the opportunity to check in real time all product listings, transactions and revenue settlements as frequently as they prefer. This transparency and open access is important to clients needing immediate information to support internal meetings related to inventory availability and the progress of their asset recovery programs.
Significant in the decision as to which asset recovery model makes the most sense is an understanding of the industry and market trends. IMPartners prides itself on its demonstrated credibility, reputation and industry knowledge. IMPartner’s principals bring over 65 years of technology market experience to recovering value for our Clients. Our focus is on maximizing returns over the long term, as opposed to a quick liquidation that primarily benefits the broker
IMPartners recognizes that not every component or product can be remarketed for reuse. In those situations where components or finished goods have no market value or are proprietary IMPartners assists our clients in recycling and reclaiming value in the component’s materials. Many components have small quantities of precious metals that can be recovered through a reputable reclamation process. IMPartners collaborates with well-established reclamation and recycling affiliates to ensure your materials are handled professionally and in an environmentally responsible manner
To assist our clients SOX compliance requirements, all transactions are fully auditable and records of each sale are kept for a period of not less than 3 years.
Certified Stocking Independent Distributor
Millions of dollars of in-stock; available-to-sell component and finished goods inventory.
In-depth Industry Expertise
IMPartners personnel have over 65 years of industry experience thus assuring our clients of receiving the right product on-time.
Asset Liquidation Programs
In an Asset Liquidation Program materials are typically purchased by line item or full lot bids, typically at a steep discount (90-95%) to the original purchase cost. Due to the very steep discounts associated with Liquidation programs IMPartners recommends “liquidation” only in rare instances or if the client needs immediate cash.
Although IMP has the ability to support Client’s liquidation requirements and has purchased millions of dollars of excess and obsolete material, we strongly recommend our client’s explore a customized solution that considers proactive marketing of non-performing assets.
