Today, IT infrastructure is a strategic component of each and every company, and we can no longer imagine a working day without notebooks, desktops, smartphones and tablets. However, each company has its own requirements.
One needs new hardware, while the other uses refurbished devices. As the Bechtle Group’s specialist in sustainable IT lifecycle management, Bechtle Remarketing GmbH can fulfil both requirements, helping businesses contribute to reducing CO2.
When it comes to remarketing your hardware, we can offset your legacy hardware’s residual price with the cost of the new. What’s more, the lifecycle also covers certified data erasure and the environmentally friendly disposal of parts that can no longer be used. When it comes to lifecycle support and remarketing, our experienced experts are on hand to handle the entire process.
We take on all services related to the IT lifecycle. From buying used IT devices to picking them up and permanently deleting data. The refurbished hardware is then made put back into circulation. All our processes are certified according to ISO 9001, 27001 and 14001 standards. We are by your side as an IT remarketing service provider with 30 years’ experience.
Bechtle Remarketing has over 5,300 m² of warehousing space at two different locations (Wesel and Bocholt) dedicated to the remarketing of used hardware. Up to 10,000 devices can be processed at our dedicated facilities per week and there is room to store over 200,000 devices.
What’s more, our offering also includes a wealth of IT services. We’ll take care of your IT so that you can focus on your business.
Bechtle Remarketing’s lifecycle concept has four distinct objectives that reflect those of the German Waste Management Act (KrWG Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz):
The lifecycles of hardware in companies are becoming shorter and shorter. Constantly increasing demands require notebooks, servers, monitors and desktops to be replaced, even though they still function perfectly well. Even defective hardware is chock full of components that are perfectly functional, which can be removed and stored in our warehouse until they are needed.
Bechtle Remarketing ensures used IT is recycled and reused or professionally disposed of as required, not only protecting the environment, but your budget as well. Bechtle takes on everything from data erasure to remarketing or disposal. On request, we provide lockable trolleys or boxes with which the old hardware can be transported safely At our Bocholt site, we erase your data according to a process defined by you. Technical and visual assessments are then carried out by specially trained and vetted employees, who inspect and test every device multiple times, before creating a test report and a diagnostic file in which configuration and performance parameters are recorded.
When storage media is remarketed or disposed of, it must first be properly wiped. as the damage caused can be significant, both for the company itself and those at the helm.
If they carry any personal data, it is a legal requirement to have them erased and reliable procedures and tools are needed to make sure this is irrevocable. It’s also necessary to have evidence of such in the form of a log.
Bechtle Remarketing has risen to these challenges and offers customers maximum data security and BSI-certified data erasure.
Data erasure only takes place in Bechtle Remarketing’s purpose built high-surveillance facilities. Depending on the individual hard drive capacities, we can manage up to 2,000 erasures per day at both sites.
The logistics centre is secured with motion sensors, and cameras are used to monitor everywhere from the outside of the company premises to inside the corridors and halls.
All data carriers are overwritten multiple times by Bechtle Remarketing. For this purpose, we use all software tools currently available on the market. The number of overwrites corresponds with the respective companies’ data protection regulations, with standard practice being 3 and 7-fold erasure. If required, HDDs and SSDs can be destroyed in a shredder and Bechtle has the compliant devices to do so.
After data has been erased, you receive a log report that shows exactly which storage media was erased and when.
Together with Bechtle Remarketing, you can make a meaningful contribution to climate protection, helping save our planet’s resources.
