The company's mission is to provide the equipment industry with the information and tools they need to serve their customers more profitably. IRON Solutions provides a portfolio of innovative and integrated products and services starting with the Official Guides, which for more than 70 years has been the gold standard of used equipment data in the industry. The Guides' trusted foundation of transactional data form the source of other IRON Solutions products and services. These include:
  • IRON Search®, the industry-leading equipment inventory and search engine for Buyers and Sellers to connect. North America's largest used tractor and equipment Web site, IRONsearch.com receives over a quarter-million unique visits each month from professionals interested in selling, buying or researching construction, agriculture and landscape equipment. IRONsearch.com boasts more than 60,000 new and used equipment listings with nearly $2Billion reported sold in 2008.
  • IRON HQ™, a fully-integrated business management solution that provides a seamless process from taking a lead, to providing a quote, to placing and processing the order.
  • IRON Builder™ product configurator, which enables manufacturers and dealers to improve order accuracy, create brand awareness, streamline communication, lower customer acquisition cost, decrease quote turnaround time and track model and option popularity.
  • IRON Guides™ equipment pricing tool that finds used tractor values and other outdoor power equipment and farm equipment values, instantly analyzes the latest sales activity in an area, factors in hours, options and reconditioning costs for the most profitable price for both a trade-in quote and for the sale for the machine.
The products are continually updated and improved. The IRON Search® tool is now included on all Farm Progress' state and regional publications' Web sites that serve farmers and ranchers across the nation. IRON Search® features the SmartSort™ scoring system that ranks equipment listings by completeness of description, along with customary categories like equipment price, age and location. SmartSort™ is automatically included on all equipment searches on IRONsearch.com, searching listings for descriptive information such as equipment photos, options, price, location and other details. The more complete the listing, the higher it rates. Results appear automatically during equipment searches on IRONSearch.com. Equipment sellers do not need to purchase any additional software or hardware to have their listings ranked.

IRON Solutions, Inc. was borne out of the North American equipment dealers associations and their dealer members who contribute data to the Official Guides. Its U.S. headquarters are in Fenton, MO., with offices in Outlook and Saskatoon, SK. For more information see www.ironsolutions.com or call 877-266-4766.
