IT Asset Recovery services for service providers.
Multi-channel remarketing that maximizes the value of your used electronic assets.
Today, many IT assets are not handled properly by the electronics recycling industry. Some products are scrapped entirely while the products still have resale value in consumer markets. Other products are not refurbished properly, failing to maximize the full potential in the value of those products. Even when products are properly refurbished, they may still be remarketed in the wrong sales channel, causing a company to miss out on potential revenue.
At Akooba, we value ourselves as experts in the secondary market, able to achieve highly competitive recovery rates for IT assets. By working with companies within the electronics recycling industry, we are able provide significant returns on excess or obsolete IT assets.
Through a combination of our in-house developed asset tracking software and industry-leading remarketing experts, Akooba is able to determine the best course of action for each type of electronic we receive. When needed all data-storing devices are sanitized based on the preference of our customer. The IT asset is then submitted through our rigorous refurbishing and remarketing processes. As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, we are able to add Windows OS to all related machines.
The key to our Asset Recovery services lies within our ability to remarket devices through a multi-channel sales approach. Because not all products are valued the same by different end-users, we find success in remarketing specific IT assets through channels where they are wanted. To accomplish this, we sell through a multitude of channels, including our proprietary e-commerce store GeekFurb and ITSupplyGuy; leading e-commerce platforms like Amazon, eBay, and New Egg; and private wholesale networks.
Customers who would like to keep their products in-house can still take advantage of our multi-channel sales approach through our Virtual Fulfillment program. By sharing inventory with Akooba, our remarketing team can submit each IT asset into our multi-channel sales approach. Our in-house software tracks and supports these processes while providing our customers with transparent reporting on the final sale of each item within our system.
When Akooba is unable to refurbish an IT asset, the asset is responsibly recycled. Akooba meets the NIST 800-88 (2014) requirements for Data Destruction, and is certified by the National Association for Information Destruction for the destruction of hard drives in our Annapolis, MD facility.
