IVM, Inc., a vending management company, will apply for a GSA (Government Services Administration) schedule 874V and actively pursue federal contracts. Government officials utilize GSA Schedules as a means of procuring goods and services knowing that companies on these schedules have been qualified by the GSA. IVM cited the fiscal restraints placed on federal agencies' budgets and their ability to assist them with controlling the distribution of products as their primary motivation in seeking a GSA schedule contract.
"For a small business, the opportunity to service federal agencies and help them take control of some of their costs opens up significantly more markets throughout the country," said Michael Pitts, president at IVM, Inc. in a prepared statement. He continued, "Getting our company on a GSA schedule will expand our reach beyond the federal level to numerous state and municipal governments and other public entities as they will be able to take advantage of our supply vending products at set government pricing."
In addition to worldwide vending management and revenue enhancement services, the company claims its automated supply distribution services are growing. This division allows businesses and manufacturers to provide their employees with supplies, free of charge, while maintaining cost and usage controls on those products. Automated supplies range from safety glasses to drill bits to office supplies. IVM's distribution equipment remotely tracks disbursement, allowing clients to control usage abuses and cut supply costs. IVM's vending technology has been deployed to the campuses of Facebook, Logitech, Google, and HP and to notable manufacturers including GE, Goodyear, Owens Corning, Pepsi Americas, BNSF Railway and Toyota.
IVM manages the traditional vending programs for hundreds of clients across thousands of locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and England.
