This acquisition enables us to accelerate our focus on helping service providers and succeed in the device as a service and software as a service, cloud-first economy.
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) December 29, 2020
Total Technology Results, a leading reverse logistics and Internet Technology Asset Disposition (ITAD) provider, today announced it has completed the acquisition of long-time partner company Emplacement, an e-waste location software-as-a-service (SaaS) company. As a result of the acquisition, Emplacement’s software will become a key offering in Total Technology’s portfolio.
Emplacement software offerings act as the missing key in hardware vendors’ ability to maintain relationships with their customers through the end of a technology device’s lifecycle. Total Technology can now offer the ability to incentivize brand loyalty to hardware manufacturers through purchase discount and trade-in programs.
Emplacement software offerings are part of a much larger digital transformation strategy at Total Technology. “This acquisition enables us to accelerate our focus on helping service providers and succeed in the device as a service and software as a service, cloud-first economy,” said Total Technology Founder and CEO, Michael Taghavi.
Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturers, like Tile (http://www.thetileapp.com), particularly see value from Emplacement software. Over 60,000 Tile users access recycling information each month. Through integrating Emplacement into their mobile app, Tile was able to remove ~$1.4M in shipping costs from their mail-in program while continuing to move their customers to sustainable end-of-life actions.
About Total Technology
Total Technology is a services company (based in San Diego CA) that brings sustainable practices to technology end-of-life. We are uniquely able to manage the entire end of life cycle of a product, by:
1. Managing device reclamation and refurbishment
2. Recycling devices responsibly, only when components are no longer usable
3. Remarketing and resale of refurbished goods
Hardware customers, from schools to the enterprises, benefit from selling old or underutilized assets to fund refresh efforts or other areas of the business.
Emplacement is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Emplacement partners with hardware and Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturers by integrating into a manufacturer’s mobile app or website to allow customers to easily locate e-waste facilities accepting their specific item. This offsets the costs for a manufacturer provided mail-in recycling program while still positively impacting sustainable outcomes within a company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals.
