Case study:
Bristol City Council

Bristol City Council

Sustainable IT in the public sector

For several years now, Bristol City Council have been using remanufactured laptops as part of their IT infrastructure.

The majority of employees use ICT solutions daily. However, technology is a big contributor to CO2 emissions in the production phase. BCC's challenge was to maintain the required operational levels while not contradicting the Green Capital remit, or compromising the user experience.

There is also the concern of cost – particularly when spending public funds, it is imperative that purchases represent the best value.

Henry Stiles said “of course environmental commitments are at the heart of all decisions here at Bristol City Council, so it is fantastic that we have sourced machines which are environmentally sound as well as being fit for purpose. [...] Remanufactured laptops also represent a substantial saving against brand-new products.”

Remanufacturing - quality without compromise

What makes remanufacturing so different?

Cosmetic renewal

Each laptop is dismantled into its major parts. Top covers, bottom covers, palm rests, bezels and keyboards are all fully repaired and repainted. We repaint in matt, gloss and soft touch finishes to match that of the original laptop.

 

Screen refresh

Screens are fully tested, dismantled and repaired if necessary. 100% of our screens are free from scratches or pressure marks. (Our Premium Edition laptops all have brand new screens)

Remanufacturing process - Inside and outside

Inside and outside

Alongside cosmetic refinishing, every unit is fully tested at component level - any worn or broken components are replaced or upgraded.

 

Attention to detail

As well as the major components, smaller details such as pointing sticks and laptop feet replacement is built into the remanufacturing process.

Quality control

Rigorous quality control processes during the unique 5+ hour, 100-point remanufacturing, ensures unrivalled quality.

 

End user experience

Our aim is to deliver our laptops in a manner which is at least on par with a new product experience.
