Mr. Angrick references two case studies to demonstrate common difficulties facing companies, such as lack of market information and a fragmented process for tracking and selling goods in the secondary marketplace. By utilizing the help of an experienced asset management partner, such as Liquidity Services, the companies — a Consumer Packaged Goods manufacturer and a leading OEM — were able to achieve success through improved brand perception, increased value, and business expansion.
