Proven expertise with 30 years experience...
Integrated Marketing Solutions started in 1983 when Chris Petersen formed a consulting group focused on retail. Over the past 30 years of working with manufacturers and retailers, the IMS value proposition for our client partners has remained the same:
Results Count ... everything else is conversation.
While we appreciate conversation as much as anyone, today’s competitive environment demands fact based intelligence to drive measurable results and ROI. That is who we are and what we do.
Our Results Count philosophy is reflected in our 5 Core Principles of Engagement, and our commitment of measuring all aspects of strategy, processes, investments and execution:
1. You can’t aim without targets.
2. Improvement requires keeping score.
3. What gets measured gets done.
4. What pays off gets done first.
5. Accountability is not a four letter word.
