Storage logistics, staging, rollout

Staging

We have a modern equipment infrastructure, a ground-breaking IT platform and flexible storage for every category of IT product. That enables Swiss Remarketing to cover all logistics activities at every point along the flow of goods. That includes taking care of planning and inventory, relocation to new premises, transport and secure storage (quarantine storage).

Our modern, efficient and secure staging infrastructure is available around the clock for software ‘fuelling’ and provisioning of your IT hardware (fat/thin clients, etc.). Our staging area has a fibre-optic link and over 400 staging stations, which means we can also handle bulk rollouts. In addition, we have four customer-dedicated staging areas available for short or long term rental. These premises are all secured by an electronic access system. There is of course video surveillance and an alarm system as well.

In addition, our flexible, motivated and skilled staff are always available for on-site, new installations or for the replacement of existing IT infrastructure. We can handle a subset of rollout activities on your behalf, for example, warehousing, equipment assembly, staging, on-site exchange and data erasure. Alternatively, we can also organise an entire rollout for you including management and planning – whether you want to replace just a few devices or thousands. The same security precautions used in data erasure also apply to our infrastructure and personnel (PSPV). We work safely and securely along process-based lines, and are ISO certified.

Data erasure (wiping, destruction of storage media)

wiping

For data privacy reasons, IT hardware destined for use elsewhere in your company, remarketing to third parties, donation or disposal must first of all be carefully anonymised. The data wiping process irretrievably erases the information still present on storage media (SSD as well).

Swiss Remarketing decommissions and transports your IT equipment in specially secured and sealed transport boxes. Before that, the equipment is inventoried so that the contents of each box is always clear. For transportation, we use vehicles with GPS tracking and real-time data transmission, allowing us to monitor and log the location and route being taken by your hardware. On arrival at our secure facility, the contents are checked and then immediately fed into the data erasure process. Secure intermediate storage is also possible on request (quarantine storage).

Data storage media is processed using recognised and certified professional tools from Blancco Technology Group – the market reference in this segment and one of the only companies who owns an patented-registered method to wipe SSD media. Equipment is anonymised at the same time, making it impossible to deduce its original place of deployment. Data storage media that does not complete the erasure process with 100 percent success is immediately physically destroyed in a shredder facility. If you wish, the same processing can also be carried out locally at your premises.

With us, security and data privacy are given the highest priority throughout the process. As the leading service provider for IT Asset Disposition ITAD, Swiss Remarketing guarantees the highest security precautions to protect your data using rigorous processes, the strictest security standards and PSPV-screened personnel. We guarantee that data has been completely and irretrievably erased and issue corresponding certificates of deletion/destruction. All this is carried out in in accordance with legal requirements and is ISO certified with seamless documentation for each item of equipment.

After that, we take care of refurbishing and sales on your behalf, as well as donations (remarketing) or proper disposal.

«We are convinced: nowhere else will your data be so securely erased. Seeing our infrastructure and assessing our processes will convince you, too.» André Wirth, CEO

Blancco Technology Group

Swiss Remarketing Limited is a ITAD Silver Partner of Blancco Technology Group and employs the latest data erasure tools from Blancco.

Looking for used IT hardware?

Many computer users are no longer willing to keep pace with every step of rapid and costly technological development. Previous-generation equipment is perfectly adequate for many applications. And if that relieves the budget too, it only adds to the joy of computer technology. Dealers also know that used equipment, well-maintained and tested, makes an attractive supplement to their existing selection of new PCs and peripherals.

Our range extends from mint-condition PCs and laptops to previous-generation peripheral equipment.

Every item on offer has one thing in common: all data from the previous owner has been irretrievably erased by us. After completing that process, used equipment is then fully tested, cleaned, and stripped of any identification relating to its former use. We only sell equipment that is in perfect technical order and we provide a performance guarantee.

Private users, dealers and companies with employee sales program

will find a selection of used IT equipment in our web shop – cleaned, in excellent condition with guarantee and support, at great prices:

Recycling

Recycling

IT hardware that is no longer functional and cannot be repaired at a reasonable cost has to be disposed of. Swiss Remarketing cooperates with certified recycling companies to ensure all equipment taken out of service is disposed of in accordance with environmental and legal requirements.

«Last year alone, we sent more than 25 tons of no longer reusable hardware for final disposal and thus made a modest, but not to be underestimated, contribution to protecting the environment.» André Wirth, CEO

360 IT Lifecycle Services

Swiss Remarketing Limited has its roots in IT Asset Disposition ITAD: since 2000, we have been erasing data (wiping), buying and selling, or disposing of used IT hardware (remarketing). From 2005, we expanded our offering to include preparation and installation of new IT hardware (rollout).

As Switzerland’s leading platform for IT hardware services, Swiss Remarketing is positioned as a highly capable specialist for rolling out new devices and remarketing used ones. The comprehensive services we provide help to save costs and resources while also assuring optimal data privacy and process efficiency.

We aim to create space for customers’ own IT core competences by taking care of the entire life cycle management for their IT hardware. Our focus on IT hardware management offers customers the opportunity to outsource a self-contained area of IT, risk-free and cost-efficiently, without entering into any new dependencies.

As an ISO-certified company, we have an in-depth understanding of complex logistical processes. Our high level of automation, seamless security precautions and utterly trustworthy employees ensure one hundred percent data integrity over the entire IT life cycle.

We operate with an eye to long-term success, continually optimising our processes and services. We provide high-grade services to match market and customer needs.

Our employees are both the heart of the company and its strength. Their characteristics are loyalty, acceptance, sound knowledge and a high level of commitment. We are committed to freedom of opinion and an atmosphere of trust and mutual appreciation.

We provide optimal conditions for our employees with regard to their health and safety. For quality control, we use the international standard OHSAS 18001 as well as the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards (ISO 27001 in introduction stage).

Business ethics, both outside and inside the company, are extremely important to us and we are committed to uncompromising integrity. Discretion is guaranteed under all circumstances. 

We are safety-oriented in our daily work, and pay attention to the careful use of resources and our environment.

Environmental management

Unsere Umweltpolitik

Awareness of the threat to natural resources has sparked a change of values in our society. This has led to the introduction of numerous legal regulations and technical standards for the protection of the environment. Environmental management is therefore now a duty for us, and we have integrated it as an ongoing and permanent process within our company. In order to meet requirements, we operate an environmental management system (EMS) in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard. These are its objectives:

  • Gain recognition among customers, employees and authorities and also the public
  • Achieve greater effectiveness and cost reductions
  • Relieve management through greater legal certainty
  • Document clear responsibilities
  • Encourage the development and enhancement of other management systems
  • Define rules for continuous further development
  • Foster the corporate culture.
