Benefits of ITEX

ITEX Generates New Customers

 It allows you to expand your market and maintain your cash paying customers. This is incremental business; customers who will go out of their way to bypass competing merchants to consistently do business with you.
ITEX Conserves Cash and Increases Profits

 Barter generates new customers because buyers are motivated to pay with their own products and services and save their cash. Simply put - if you had to purchase a copier, what would you rather do? Write a check or pay with an equal amount of your product/service at its normal selling price to a new customer? Most businesses prefer to trade and conserve their cash.
Barter Moves your Excess Inventory

  1. Retailers: Retailers must keep their inventory moving. Each season, customers shop for the most current merchandise. We bring you buyers to move your excess inventory, thereby eliminating the advertising and heavy discounting costs otherwise needed to accomplish this.
  2. Manufacturers/Wholesalers: We coordinate the selling of your surplus inventory, while helping you obtain the best possible prices for your products. We negotiate for you to receive either the going price in the marketplace or at least your full normal selling price to distributors. This allows you to maintain your current pricing integrity as well as upgrading your return on investment.
Increase Productivity by Filling Downtime and Unused Capacity

  1. Service Business: Increased billable hours! If you are not at full capacity twelve months a year and if you can handle new customers, we can help you fill this idle time with new business opportunities.
  2. Hotels: If you have vacant rooms and you need landscaping. We provide a way for you to have the work done without spending cash and at the same time fill more of your rooms at their full retail price.
  3. Manufacturers: If you are currently operating at 90% capacity, going to 93% could change very little in the cost of production. Tell us your optimum production level – and we will strive to meet or exceed your expectations.
Networking Expands Your Customer Base

 ITEX customers bring with them the same cash referrals that your present clients bring - as long as you give these customers the same services and pricing as you offer everyone else. ITEX is a networking tool.
