Postings were included online in the 1980s and online auctions started in 1999. A year later, in April 2000, FreeMarkets Inc.

The acquisitions were integrated with FreeMarkets' existing asset business to form the FreeMarkets AssetExchange, a leading B2B eMarketplace for buying and selling new and used assets. The Record's listings have included more than 70,000 industrial assets such as metalworking and fabricating machine tools, chemical and process equipment, cranes, air compressors, pumps, motors, circuit breakers, generators, transformers, turbines. More than 1,000 businesses list with the online Surplus Record.
