At our company, we help our customers contribute to the circular economy by preserving and extending the useful life of leased equipment. When we refurbish used equipment and give it a new home, it reduces the amount of e-waste generation from old technology, helping our clients reduce their carbon footprint.
At our core, we are a technology company. We have an acute understanding of the relationship between equipment, maintenance, and end of life disposition. This understanding helps us to achieve sustainability throughout the entire equipment lifecycle.
When entering into a lease partnership with us, we work closely with our clients to develop a sustainable refresh strategy – ensuring they have access to state of art equipment today while developing a roadmap to upgrade to more powerful energy efficient technology in the future. We make this process extremely easy on our clients because we own our own return and refurbishment centers.
At the end of lease, equipment is returned to our technology center where all equipment is received, audited, and refurbished by our Microsoft A+ certified technicians. Equipment that passes all necessary audits are remarketed to commercial and public sector schools, businesses, and organizations globally, and in some instances donated to various non-profit organizations. The continuation and extension of useful life of our equipment keeps electronics in the hands of those who can still use it.
Any equipment that doesn’t meet our standard for refurbishment, is ecologically disposed of through our partnerships with ISO-14001 certified e-waste collection and recycling companies. Our partners must undergo rigorous examination to ensure they comply with all international, EPA, state and local standards and regulations. We regularly audit their procedures to ensure they adhere to the strictest guidelines and maintain a no-landfill policy.
Sustainability has been core to our business model for over 35 years. Our focus on all aspects of the technology lifecycle and ongoing investments in this area will ensure that we continue to help our clients implement and manage their technology refresh strategy.
