“As a custodian of our clients’ trust we at HCLTech strive to offer them the very best market options, empowering our customers to navigate the challenges of sustainable IT. Our relationship has prospered from your commitment on delivering a product unlike any other in the remanufactured market and we look forward to visiting your factory and seeing your work for ourselves. Also, it will be great to engage with similar companies from across the spectrum around the subject of how sustainable IT is changing the channel forever.”
"There is absolutely no doubt that your company is pushing forward the limits of what is possible with a used product entering the ‘new’ channel, and having seen the product for myself I am happy to confirm it is nothing like offerings from the traditional refurbished market. I look forward to experiencing the hospitality at your facility and seeing what you have built and exploring the available networking opportunities it will bring in the PM.”
Event Organiser & CEO
THE MOST FREQUENT QUESTIONS WE'RE BEING ASKED
The business of used products and where they can be sold is changing. We believe we have been part of that change and have a story to tell. We have decided to tell it to a selected group of people and companies that would find value in it because we believe it would benefit us and attendees alike.
We have contracts to deliver "Reman as a Service" and hardware to many companies that are attending and it will allow them to see first hand how we deliver to them. For companies coming that are from the industry but not fully engaged yet, it will give us a chance to "show and tell" and hopefully lead to increased engagement.
We feel it would be impossible to deliver the same experience unless it was actually at the facility.
Over the past 10 years we have invested to deliver what we believe is the finest laptop remanufacturing and refurbishment facility on the planet. 380 staff on site delivering 20,000 units per month at a standard that holds 2 British Standard Institution Kitemark certifications, One of them being for remanufacture which is the only one in the world awarded for our Circular Remanufacturing Process.
But none of this will matter if we do not take the company to the next stage of growth and development and capitalise on the past work and investment so we need to leverage existing relationships and build new partnerships into the industry that can use what we have built.
Furthermore the afternoon of the day will allow our beliefs to be challenged or validated by industry champions. As the saying goes "if you are the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room".
The morning will cover our process and story for all the reasons previously mentioned and if a used product is your business, or set to impact your business, or an opportunity for your business then the gain is clear.
The afternoon will be about collaborative conversation and we are set to deliver this by "turning the room in on itself" to allow fully explored discussions, debate and input.
Through bringing data expertise and acting as moderators to raised questions or assumptions, it will allow all subject matters to be aired and explored with the huge pool of experience and talent in the room.
Of course we cannot make people get involved (and we are not asking for sensitive company data to be revealed), but we are being told by booked attendees that the opportunity to engage with peers faced with similar issues in a collaborative group setting, is their key reason to attend.
Many people much smarter than us are looking into the implications of a used product entering the brand new channel. The dangers of getting it wrong and the opportunities of getting it right are equally substantial.
We believe that within the next 6 - 24 months many of the early roadmaps will have been driven, and the possible futures will start to become in focus. We think that in that period new long term partnerships will be drawn and the work will begin to bear the fruit expected.
OEM's will have worked out their offerings, Distribution will have the stock on the shelves, Resellers will have worked out the new language of a used product, ITAD's will have seen their position in the supply chain flip from the back to the front and end users will have worked out what to buy and from whom. The shifts will be large and the future will belong to those willing to get out of their comfort zone and move away from BAU.
As for us, as stated we believe we have laid the groundwork foundations for so much to be built upon by the incoming industry changes and the question will be whether we go at that alone or as part of a much larger opportunity where one plus one equals five for both sides.
"After signing our partnership in 2021, Circular Computing is a key component of our Sustainable Digital Workplace offering which we launched at our 3rd Sustainability Conference in Dubai alongside COP28 in December 2023. There is no doubt that your remanufactured laptops are integral to our value proposition, and the most credible offering available on the market today. We are looking forward to seeing the products being built first hand, widening our knowledge of the strong quality processes in place to deliver through Atos to our clients, and exploring ways of enhancing our offering from the networking opportunities and open discussions.”
