We offer an entire spectrum of services: from the pick-up all the way to the disassembly of your hardware: a comprehensive package for your company. Professional services are linked to a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project. Find out more about our services and process steps here.
AfB staff equipped with company cars pick up retired hardware directly at the workplace. Great emphasis is placed on the security of personal data: hardware is transported in lockable containers, our buildings are guarded by cameras and access to them is strictly controlled.
The hardware will be transported directly to the nearest AfB location, registered and stored at our own locked warehouse. AfB also offers our partners an optional special service of tracking the hardware from the moment of its registration process. A web login allows our partners to check the status of their hardware processing online and at all times.
The moment the hardware is entered into the inventory, its further destination needs to be determined (e.g. recycling or re-marketing). Afterwards, the hardware details are recorded (e.g. manufacturer, model, serial number, product number) and all customer labels are removed. All data will be saved to the Inventory Management System and linked to a uniquely identifiable Log ID.
We provide certified data erasure using a special software from the company Blancco and subsequently testing of individual devices.
Functional equipment will then undergo a professional cleaning process and, if necessary, will be repaired.
Your hardware is in good hands
Our workflow processes are certified by one of the highest technical standards in the world - TÜV.
