As a recognized leader in international medical devices, IML has equipped our dealers with the tools to succeed since 2011. We help our dealer network achieve their goals by providing more than just medical devices, information, and sales opportunities.

Premium dealer support through the entire sales cycle
Identify high demand products
As a dealer, you want high quality products that sell. Staying up-to-date with all the latest developments in medical technology can be an onerous task. As a top company in the field, IML helps our dealers keep their finger on the pulse of state-of-the-art medical technology. We search the world to find the highest quality innovative medical systems and make them available for our dealers to add to their range of products.
Researching, identifying, sourcing, and providing products to dealers is only part of the story, however. Fostering relationships is a key piece of the IML experience.
We help our dealers hit the ground running with turnkey sales support material. IML support and resources help facilitate relationship building with hospital decision makers, such as surgeons and senior management.
Build rapport with decision makers
Forming relationships and selling to skeptical stakeholders in hospitals can be challenging for medical device dealers. Surgeons often prefer the familiar, while senior management may have concerns around total cost of ownership and surgery volumes. Patients may have their own questions and concerns about the use of new technology in procedures.
All of these audiences need to be educated in ways that focus on learning and answering questions, with no high-pressure sales tactics. Genuine knowledge sharing fosters curiosity that leads to surgeons, hospitals, and patients wanting to learn more. Prospects who are eager to learn will ask questions, and the objections they raise can be addressed and overcome with empathy using our high-quality suite of product knowledge and sales resources.
Provide educational resources to assure prospects
Understanding the questions of various stakeholders, and providing relevant resources is a key part of moving prospects through the buyer’s journey. That’s why we developed the IML sales toolkit. This premium educational resource enables our dealer network to:
- Provide relevant and timely product information to all stakeholder audiences
- Answer questions and gain understanding using empathy
- Overcome objections
- Increase confidence in the purchasing decision
As a trusted partner, IML provides dealers with world-class product information that helps move prospects through the entire sales cycle from start to finish.
Every buyer’s path to purchase is different—some require more time and education than others. Many prospects require multiple touchpoints delivered through various channels over time.
Our dealers grow their businesses when they are able to focus on doing what they do best—building rapport and providing solutions to their customer’s most pressing needs.
To generate sales conversions, dealers must focus on linking a given product, platform, system, or technology and its benefits to the strategic objectives of hospital decision makers. These objectives may include:
- Boosting revenue
- Increasing efficiency
- Decreasing costs
- Enhancing cash flow
- Improving patient outcomes and instilling confidence
- Addressing surgeon ergonomics
- Attracting and retaining top surgical talent
Hospitals have a need for leading edge medical devices that can help them achieve their strategic goals. Moving decision makers all the way through the sales funnel requires their complete confidence in the post-sale support the dealer provides.
