With the array of new mobile devices available in the market today, so is the growing need to provide an effective method to recycle and dispose of old devices. OVATION offers a program to address this growing concern while also protecting our environment. Our mobile device recycling program is easy to use and helps companies ensure that any sensitive data (both personal and corporate) is safely and securely removed from all used mobile devices. The program is completely free for clients to participate, in fact it generates additional revenue. OVATION oversees the mobile device recycling program by providing assistance with multiple methods of communication to your employees as well as providing full compliance reporting to enhance your company’s green initiatives, all with a detailed audit trail.
All mobile device types are accepted regardless of their condition including cellphones, Smartphones, all types of data cards and Mifi’s. Each handset is scanned and validated for model and serial number. A high quality inspection is performed on each device to determine its functionality and/or obsolescence. Our recycler performs a 100 + point data erasing process on each handset to ensure that all sensitive data is completely removed from each device. Obsolete or non-repairable devices are recycled and given no value, all other devices are appraised with a value. The appraised value is highly volatile and changes monthly as new devices are being released.
We also provide free shipping labels for our clients that wish to participate in mobile device recycling so that there is no cost incurred for this program. Users click on a link to request their free shipping label(s) and are emailed the shipping labels along with detailed instructions on how to pack and send the devices. Based on when the devices are received at the recycler, the turn-around time for payment for the devices varies but is within a 90 day period.
Data security is an important aspect of mobile device management for businesses today. OVATION realizes that old devices that are accumulated in desks and offices can become a security issue if not dealt with properly. Our mobile device recycling program ensures safe and secure removal of sensitive data while protecting the environment and creates a win-win scenario for our clients.
