Superior Asset Recovery through Industry Expertise and Cutting Edge Technology Akooba attempts to recover reusable electronics whenever possible and allowed by the customer. Assets that are refurbished through Akooba go through a rigorous process to ensure each recoverable item meets the standards set forth by the original electronic manufacturer.All items received by Akooba are first tested to see if they contain data storing devices before being refurbished. In the case that they do, Akooba either erases the data from the device or destroys the device entirely as indicated by the client. All refurbished computers that undergo the data wiping process are done so in a manner that meets and exceeds the industry standard NIST 800-88 level of data erasure. The destruction of devices occurs in our AAA-certified Annapolis facility for data destruction.

Our expert technicians then replace or restore components to bring the item to OEM standards. When applicable, assets are imaged in order to add the appropriate software to a device. These items are then tested again to verify performance. IT assets that are unable to be restored are submitted into our electronic recycling process.
