When Sage extends the useful life of a gadget, that’s good for the environment, and puts more money in our customer’s pocket.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) April 15, 2015
Sage Sustainable Electronics today announced the opening of its third national repurposing center in Baltimore, serving the eastern states. Sage CEO Robert Houghton said the company’s objective is to help businesses retire old technology more sustainably, and with better value recovery.
“Two-thirds of electronics recycled for raw materials are still perfectly functional,” he said. “When Sage extends the useful life of a gadget, that’s good for the environment, and puts more money in our customer’s pocket.”
Company President Jill Vaské noted that for many businesses, data security trumps financial concerns. “It’s no longer necessary to choose between data protection and optimal financial and environmental results,” said Vaské. “Our chain-of-custody and data destruction processes are demonstrably reliable, and Sage indemnifies our clients against the costs of a data breach.”
Sage provides data destruction services for all types of technology from personal computing to mobile to the data center. The company also offers low-cost “legal hold” services for businesses that must securely retain data from retired devices for a period of time before erasure is permitted.
Sage has invested millions in data systems – including the world’s most comprehensive electronics value reference, the Sage BlueBook – to become the nation’s most efficient IT asset disposition (ITAD) company. “Sage’s low overhead makes our best-in-class services extremely competitive,” said Houghton. “Since Maryland doesn’t charge sales tax on business services, it’s like getting a rebate in Baltimore compared with the same services performed elsewhere in the region.”
As a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher, Sage updates PCs with genuine Windows operating systems before offering them for sale. “When you buy a Sage refurbished PC, you pay a refurbished price, but we deliver a new-device experience,” said Vaské. “Refurbished computers work great with cloud services, and are a reliable solution for families on a budget.”
