Apto Solutions, Inc. was founded on June 1, 2001 by James Kilkelly and Jeffrey Jones at a time when the technology markets were in turmoil and filing for bankruptcy was more than a daily event.
Over the next eighteen months, we worked on several bankruptcies and for several creditors, helping them monetize the assets of their defunct investments. Our client list ranged from the entities themselves to the equipment manufacturers and finance companies including Enron, Nortel Networks and General Electric Capital Corporation.
During this period, we sold assets ranging from simple office equipment to the most complex optical telecommunications equipment. We also invested a tremendous amount of money and resources in developing a state of the art, "best in class" integrated inventory and contact management system that allows us to simultaneously inventory and track assets as well as locate and market to the appropriate group of buyers.
When the dust settled, we were able to review our progress, study economic trends, the behaviors of our customers in good and bad times, and realize that our core competency was in the strategic recovery and remarketing of technology equipment. From here, we identified several additional new sources and vertical markets where we could apply our craft including:
Along with the leading reputation in our industry, we now have ongoing asset recovery contracts with some of the world’s largest corporations. We have invested in some of the brightest people in the industry to help make Apto the industry leader as well as a global brand. As the world becomes more and more dependent on technology, the need for our services will continue to be in greater demand. We look forward to the future.
