The U.S. Micro Challenge: Compare Our Process

Four Distinct Capabilities
that Set U.S. Micro Apart:

1 - U.S. Micro-trained technicians

U.S. Micro’s highly trained technicians control every step of the process, from onsite data sanitization and pickup/shipping to final disposition by reselling or demanufacturing. No subcontractors or third party downstream vendors are used. Our technicians receive extensive training in existing and emerging technologies as well as locating often overlooked data-containing devices, e.g., copiers, smartphones, fax machines, scanners, printers and USB drives.

2- Enertia

Enertia, our industry unique, proprietary technology enables U.S. Micro technicians to track assets in real-time, providing electronic updates every step of the way to confirm 100 percent asset recovery and data sanitization, eliminating human error.

3- Closed-loop recycling

Closed-loop recycling at U.S. Micro’s next generation IT Demanufacturing and Distribution Center ensures that e-waste is processed in-house, eliminating the need for downstream vendors. We offer a full range of recycling alternatives: refurbishing, reselling/donating and demanufacturing.

Upfront Purchase Agreement

Guaranteed price upfront – no consignment that erodes equipment value and adds numerous service fees; title of equipment and associated risk of loss is transferred to U.S. Micro when the assets leave your location.

Onsite Inventory Reports

U.S. Micro electronically reconciles equipment inventory at your location to account for all assets intended for disposal and emails a real-time report while onsite.

Onsite Data Sanitization

Assets certified as data free
ONSITE AT YOUR LOCATION.

Onsite Wipe Verification

You receive a final, system-generated real time report verifying data sanitization on each piece of equipment before we leave your location.

Asset Transportation

Although U.S. Micro reduces the risk of transporting IT assets by destroying data before it ever leaves you location, shipping is still handled by highly trained U.S. Micro employees.

Final Inventory Audit

U.S. Micro conducts another, final inventory audit after assets arrive at its facilities to verify that all equipment originally marked for disposition is reconciled. All assets containing hard drives are then subjected to an additional DoD wiping process.

Refurbish

U.S. Micro refurbishes approximately 90 percent of equipment for resale or donation. As a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher, we also preinstall genuine Windows software on computers before reselling.

Demanufacturing

If equipment cannot be refurbished and resold or donated, it is demanufactured through our closed-loop recycling facility in Las Vegas.

Closed-loop Recycling

U.S. Micro has a 100 percent no landfill policy and offers a full range of recycling alternatives. When equipment cannot be refurbished and resold, it is demanufactured at our facility and materials are sold to the commodities market.

Resell/Donate

U.S. Micro views reusing IT assets as the highest form of recycling. In addition to reselling equipment, we offer customers the option to donate a portion of their refurbished equipment to causes of their choice.

4- Upfront Purchase Agreement

The U S. Micro Upfront Purchase Agreement creates profit for customers by providing a guaranteed price, eliminating the numerous service fees and asset value erosion associated with consignment models. In addition, the title of equipment and associated risk of loss is transferred to us when the assets leave your location.
