Past News Releases


FreeFlow, an award-wining provider of inventory asset management services, announced that manufacturing magazine START-IT has named it a 2008 company to "Keep An Eye On." As a business services provider that enables manufacturers, distributors and retailers to disposition excess and at-risk inventory via hosted on-line private auctions, FreeFlow has successfully shifted the asset dispositioning process from a cost center to a revenue program.

START-IT selected FreeFlow as a company to "Keep An Eye On" because of its success in helping enterprises reset their entire approach to remarketing excess inventory. Because companies have traditionally focused on the forward supply chain they seldom have the resources to run an excess inventory remarketing program as a profitable business.

Whether they are an OEM selling obsolete inventory still in factory packaging, or are a manufacturer with returns or component inventory, FreeFlow offers a deployment option to meet their needs. FreeFlow provides pre-auction services such as FreeFlow Market Intelligence to maximize recovery with targeted pricing, fully-hosted online B2B auction technology, and post-auction financial settlement, all on a pay-as-you-go basis. This end-to-end solution has transformed the way enterprises view and manage inventory.

"Over the past several years, FreeFlow has been adopted by more and more Fortune 1,000 companies," noted Alan Scroope, FreeFlow's CEO. "Our latest recognition by START-IT magazine highlights our success in shifting the paradigm of asset dispositioning from a cost center to a revenue program."

FreeFlow has proven to be a top supply chain partner by addressing its customers' needs to disposition aging or end-of-life finished goods and components, wherever those products are located. The company's branded and anonymous auctions provide a private forum where only approved brokers view and bid on a company's inventory. Auction and 'member privilege' dynamics are deployed to improve bidding performance, returning higher recovery rate on all goods.

FreeFlow's inventory asset management solution is utilized in the high-tech, automotive, consumer package goods, telecomm, and apparel industries. With its auction platforms, detailed market analysis and related business services, FreeFlow provides a low-cost, high recovery alternate channel for excess and at-risk inventory in all stages of the product lifecycle.
