ERI is committed to providing our clients with the highest value of return on capital asset investments. Through ERI’s Asset Recovery Program, ERI can identify, sanitize, test, refurbish and resell each device. ERI is focused on maximizing the value of not only intact, tested, and working devices but, is also skilled at “harvesting” useful parts that are also remarketed.
The parts harvesting process is unique to ERI and allows our clients to generate revenue from otherwise non-working devices. ERI’s remarketing and investment recovery services offer revenue-share potential from these sales and provide a significant value-add back to the customer for the management of its end-of-life electronics.
ERI’s asset management team specializes in complete asset refurbishment and resale including the following:
Testing, Auditing and Tracking
Once equipment has been received and is centrally located, ERI will perform testing and auditing services to determine the usefulness of the item and to capture important tracking information from each major component.
Due to the sensitive information contained in almost all electronic memory components, ERI follows a stringent data management process to ensure that sensitive data is not inadvertently compromised.
ERI will determine current market conditions and identify equipment that can be resold at a fair and reasonable price. Part of the validation process includes a determination on what type of a return-on-investment can be achieved.
ERI is the largest fully integrated electronics & IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company in the United States.

Just 1 gigabyte of data can equal as many as 675,000 pages of information.
Most computer hard drives are 500GB, meaning they can contain up to 337.5 million pages of information!
MIT tested over 150 used hard drives and over 92% contained recoverable sensitive information including social security numbers, credit card numbers, medical records and more.
An average small data breach costs a company $3.5 million dollars.

Many states mandate e-waste recycling, and more companies are now starting to mandate data destruction for company devices.
Electronics are the fastest growing solid waste stream in the world.
E-waste can contain lead, mercury, cadmium and other hazardous materials which when improperly recycled can leach into the soil and groundwater.
More devices today contain sensitive data, from smartphones to computers to tablets and beyond. This data must be destroyed when a device is deemed obsolete, or the information can be obtained by e-waste data miners.
