The challenge

Our client had an inventory of windscreens that were obsolete in the local and international markets. They were causing a loss to the business that also came with high destruction costs.

Our solution

  • Active collaborated with the client to identify trading opportunities within their portfolio. Their media expenditure was an opportunity to drive value back to the business.
  • Active worked closely with the client’s media agency to identify which of Active’s media partners will fit in line with their strategy.

  • The media was then traded at the agency’s negotiated rates and quality parameters.

  • For every $100k of media traded using Active’s media trading partners the glass repairs company generated a $20,000 cash rebate which could then be used to fund underlying business expenses.

  • The ultimate solution for the client with the financial benefit they received from partnering with us they were able to cover the cost of destroying the windscreens, decreasing the cash outlay to their business.

If I had my life to live over again I would elect to be a trader of goods rather than a student of science. I think Barter is a noble thing.
