About Us

IMS Inc - Empowering Product Development for CPG, Personal Care and Pharmaceutical Companies

IMS Culture
IMS recruits only the best and brightest -- and our employees are constantly growing and developing. Over the last ten years, our teams have created exceptional breakthroughs by focusing their technology skills and innovative energies on solving the fundamental problems faced by our global customers. Everyone has a voice at IMS, and the company’s success has been the direct result of the vision, intelligence, passion and commitment of the IMS team members. One other point, we understand how busy you are, and thus we have designed our systems so that in the vast majority of cases when you call IMS during business hours, instead of getting voicemail, you get to speak to a friendly, intelligent person who genuinely wants to assist you with your needs.

Customer Funded
In contrast to many technology companies that are struggling in today’s environment, IMS is 100% customer financed. Our proven products provide excellent value to our customers -- and for the last ten years we have reinvested our profits from selling products and services to further grow our business. Our customer base includes leading global CPG, Personal Care, Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical companies.

History
Frustrated by years of working with technology vendors that had "no idea" concerning the fundamental needs of global product development organizations, Dr. John P. Sottery left Procter & Gamble in September 1992 to found IMS Inc. He had a vision for a company that would focus on creating new technology specifically designed to empower global product development organizations. Headquarters are located in Milford, Connecticut, and there is a manufacturing facility in Portland, Maine.  The company is privately held.
