About Us

IMS, what is today a remarkably successful North American barter exchange, began as a humble company. Don Mardak, the founder of IMS, started from his home office in New Berlin, Wisconsin in 1985. Since then, we have steadily and carefully built the most respected trade dollar in circulation today and the most comprehensive trading network of small businesses in the history of barter. We set out every day to change the way the world does business. We accomplish that through our dedicated employees and satisfi ed members. Today, with 18 offices serving 51 markets, IMS has branded the largest full-service, membership-based trading network in the United States and Canada.

International Monetary Systems is a publicly traded company (OTC BB: ITNM). For us, this means that our financial reporting and accounting methods are audited and subject to to strict regulations. For you, it means you can trust IMS to be a lasting resource in your business growth.
