What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
Ohio offers us a great environment to grow and to succeed within. We have been able to work with many local suppliers to help us accomplish our business goals. The mid-size market of Dayton has helped us to work our way up with office/warehouse space and to be able to continue to grow within the same geographical areas.

Description of business:
IVS founder and President Patrick McDonald is a US Army veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and proudly served starting in 1988 up until 2006. 

IVS's beginnings trace back to an online T-shirt store that McDonald's wife opened to provide a job opportunity for their disabled son Nick, who was bedridden due to uchene’s Muscular Dystrophy. After his death in 2007, she expanded the Nick's Novel-Tees business and began looking for ways to diversify it. "It was 2:30 a.m. and I couldn't sleep; the wheels in my head kept spinning," recalled McDonald. "I thought, something mobile that could move from location to location, and wherever it worked it worked, and if it didn't, we'd move it -- vending! We could put it in remote areas and expand without opening a brick-and-mortar store."

IVS is considered the leader in Automated Retail Innovations. IVS has worked with Make-A-Wish foundation on a project “Hoops for Hope” and is a proud supporter of their efforts and accomplishments.

IVS is the first company in North America to develop software to dispense using the Twitter application. IVS has proved to be effective in its marketing efforts and technology from a long list of clients and customers. IVS is smaller than its competitors and has proven to be one of the leaders in the automated retail industry and is still growing strong for almost 6 years. IVS builds, develops manufactures and supports entirely in the USA.

IVS has worked on various technologies and applications and with various companies to include Wal-Mart, Sony North America, Twitter UK and Twitter US, IKEA, KIA, MTV, GM, Ford, Hyundai, Google and many more.
