Refurbished IT Equipment Can Provide Better Value For Money

Buying a refurbished system will provide a far better price versus value specification when compared to buying a new one. However, when purchasing a pre-owned computer or laptop, one must ensure that it is a Certified Refurbished System (CRS).

The term ‘refurbished’ often has a negative connotation but one needs to discover the benefits of refurbished products before making a final decision. To make a smart buying decision one needs to understand what refurbished products really are, where they come from, how to buy them, and why refurbished is sometimes the best choice.

Refurbishment helps curb electronic waste by lengthening the lifecycle of electronic equipment. More importantly, by purchasing a refurbished system, one automatically contributes to the reduction of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, promotes a greener planet and creates a better future for generations to come by going green.

CRS managing director Alvin Peacock says after 14 years of innovation and development, the company has refined its refurbishment process which is ISO certified and audited.

"Our mission is to provide affordable computing to all by cutting costs and without compromising quality.”

"If your IT budget is lean, then refurbished products offer high-quality, warrantied product at a low cost. However, there are a number of things to keep in mind when you buy refurbished products. Ensure your product was refurbished and certified by a trusted and accredited refurbishing company that offers adequate warranties and return policies," he adds.

The first step of the refurbishing process is the eradication of data and then a fully-fledged factory process from validating of the Operating System and firmware to re-image PCs to the latest factory updates.

Peacock says refurbishing is not merely the cleaning and packaging of devices. “It runs through an intensive process which includes, replacing faulty components, manufacturer OEM burn in testing, cosmetic surgery, quality control, performance upgrading, software and firmware redeployment and packaging.”

“We offer Grade-A products, all our products are put through factory grade processes that are certified & audited by ISO 14001:2015, ISO9001:2015. We also offer a 12 - 24-month warranty so that customers can buy with piece of mind knowing that they have purchased from an accredited supplier with aftersales service,” he explains.

“Our stamp of assurance is our promise to deliver quality, value for money and integrity in every product sold," he concludes.
