8 Steps GreenTek Solutions (GTS) Takes to Ensure a Successful ITAD Process Maximize the Value of Your Used IT Assets While Ensuring Data Security, Environmental Responsibility, and Full Transparency

When it’s time to upgrade your IT equipment, transition to cloud services, or dispose of end-of-life assets, proper management is crucial. GreenTek Solutions' proven 8-step process ensures you reclaim as much of your initial investment as possible while avoiding data security, compliance, and environmental issues. With decades of IT experience, GTS guarantees maximum returns on hardware while meeting your unique requirements.

Here's how it works:


Understanding Your Scope

Before initiating the process, GTS engages in detailed discussions with clients to fully understand their needs and add the most value. Since no two ITAD processes are alike, our team invests significant time in analyzing requirements and providing straightforward guidance. Clients often find that the GTS ITAD services are typically provided at no cost, utilizing direct purchases, revenue-sharing, or sort-and-settle structures, transforming potential costs into savings and revenue generation. After gaining a thorough understanding of the scope, GreenTek presents an offer to the client, outlining the terms and timelines for equipment resale, refurbishing, recycling, and reporting.


Collect & Transport Equipment

The process begins with on-site decommissioning, packing, and transportation of the equipment, or coordinating a freight service to handle logistics. A PO number is created to track items across multiple locations or concurrent ITAD projects via real-time, on-demand reports.


Weigh & Receive Assets

GTS ITAD professionals receive the IT assets at our secure facilities, weighing and categorizing every container. This data is recorded in GTS’ proprietary ERP, along with the location of every container. Our commitment to security, quality, and safety processes is reflected in our R2v3 and ISO 9001, 14001, and 45001 Certifications.


Sort & Inventory Equipment

Next, we meticulously scan the make, model, serial number, and asset tag of every item, processing up to 11,000 assets at a time. We determine which items are fit for resale versus recycling, separating all data-bearing devices, recording them in the GTS ERP, and storing them in secure cages monitored by CCTV and protected with limited keycard access.


Test, Repair & Refurbish Assets

GreenTek then begins the in-depth testing and wiping process, directing any nonfunctional equipment to recycling. Items are safely tested, refurbished, and cleaned to ensure maximum value during the sales process.


Data Wiping and HDD/SSD Shredding

Simultaneously with Step 4, data-bearing devices undergo a wiping process in the secure areas. Any device that cannot be wiped is destroyed by Ameri-Shred Corp Industrial shredders, with the remains sent downstream for material recovery. This step is critical for data security, leveraging best practices and verified by frequent audits.


Market & Sell Products

With every device tested, reset, and wiped—or directed to recycling—the GreenTek Sales Department works to achieve the highest sale price. Using multiple platforms like eBay, BrokerBin, UNEDA, the GreenTek online store, wholesale, or direct sales to end-users, we choose the optimal sales channel based on items, value, quantity, and demand.


Pack & Ship Items

Once an item is sold, our ERP system is alerted to ensure customers receive the item quickly, leading to faster payment for ITAD clients. Items are immediately pulled from inventory, carefully packaged, and transferred to the Shipping Department. Devices are cleaned and inspected once more before a tracking number is uploaded and shared with the purchasing customer.


Recapture IT Investment

Upon completing the previous steps in approximately 30-45 days, the next step depends on the agreement between GreenTek and the client and the chosen revenue-generating strategy:

  • Direct Purchase Order: This is the quickest way to recapture costs. GreenTek and the client negotiate an agreed-upon price and, after the ITAD process is complete, GreenTek purchases the assets directly, providing payment just days after completion.
  • Sort and Settle: Ideal for clients with a mix of new, aged, or unknown equipment, this option involves sorting through the assets and settling on an agreed purchase price, with clients receiving settlement within days.
  • Consignment / Revenue Sharing: To maximize sales revenue, GreenTek engages in IT asset remarketing through effective sales channels. Clients receive ongoing quarterly reporting until all items are sold, plus detailed breakdowns of sold items and sale prices.

Through this comprehensive 8-step process, GreenTek clients recapture substantial IT value and receive payments for resold items while saving thousands by avoiding the high fees of traditional ITAD vendors.
