Innovative Hardware Lifecycle Management: 7 Unique Advantages with Revivn

At Revivn, we understand that the disposal of IT assets is not just a logistical challenge, but an opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment and society. Choosing Revivn is more than just a decision for efficiency and security — it’s a commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. By repurposing devices, we maximize the hardware lifecycle and divert waste from landfills. 

In this blog post, we’ll explore how Revivn’s unique approach offers distinct advantages, setting us apart as a leader in responsible, secure, and efficient IT lifecycle management. We’ll also explore why partnering with us is not just a choice, but a statement of your company’s values and vision for a better world.

Ease of use and time savings

With Revivn, scheduling a hardware pickup is straightforward and fast. Simply select your preferred day and time in our SaaS platform (the Revivn App), and wait for confirmation from our concierge team. This efficient process eliminates the need for extensive email exchanges for scheduling. 

Furthermore, for your convenience, we collect a comprehensive range of corporate IT equipment, including phones, monitors, computers, tablets, keyboards, cables, servers, and more. With Revivn, the need to coordinate with multiple vendors for different types of equipment is eliminated. This unified approach not only saves time but also ensures consistency in handling and security across all your IT assets.

Earn funds back with a guaranteed quote upfront if needed, no surprises

In line with our “net positive” program, hardware pickups most likely come at no out-of-pocket cost, with the opportunity to earn money back from your outdated hardware. In instances where there might be a charge, it can be offset using funds accumulated from your previous pickups. We have developed various products to help our customers remain net positive, and our team will work closely with you to implement a custom solution at scale.

We can also offer you a guaranteed quote in advance, eliminating the need to wait for the resale process to receive funds. This approach removes the unpredictability of the traditional revenue share model, where clients are left uncertain about whether they’ll ultimately receive compensation or incur fees, depending on whether their hardware is sold. Our unique direct buyback model enables faster, more predictable payments to customers. 

Exceptional customer service 

Exceptional customer service is at the heart of what we do. Our global white glove logistics are designed to make the disposal process a world-class experience, regardless of your location. We pride ourselves in unmatched service for our customers. 

For hardware pickups, you are not required to pack up any equipment or consolidate devices into one area. Our on-site team packs everything for you. Our experienced team will arrive on site with all supplies needed to safely package your assets and transport it to our secure facility. 

All customers have 24/7 access to our concierge team, as well as a dedicated account manager to guide them through each step, ensuring a smooth experience. Additionally, customers get real-time updates in our SaaS platform.  

Certified data destruction, held to the highest security standards

Revivn’s product sanitization measures all meet or exceed the standards set forth by the Department of Defense and NIST 800-88. This process may include measures such as overwriting, purging, shredding, disintegration, incineration, and pulverization. Revivn is also certified in ISO 9001, 45001, and 14001, and all processes are independently audited by a third party. 

For every pickup, we provide a certificate of destruction (COD), certifying that all data has been completely destroyed in accordance with NIST 800-88 or Department of Defense standards. 

Commitment to social good

As a certified B Corp, Revivn is committed to social responsibility. By working with Revivn, companies choose to promote sustainability, transforming end of life disposal into a socially responsible act. After each pickup, customers receive an impact report detailing the number of devices repurposed, the poundage of e-waste recycled, and the poundage of e-waste prevented. 

Revivn also partners with hundreds of nonprofit organizations to provide devices and tech access to underserved communities. Customers have the option to make donations directly through the app if they desire. They can completely fund a project or contribute to a wide variety of initiatives. 

Ease of auditing and compliance 

Within the Revivn app, customers can easily view certificates of destruction (CODs) for data-bearing assets. Customers can also access asset lists for every pickup, which include serial numbers, makes, models, and conditions of devices. Centralizing these documents in one easily accessible location simplifies the auditing experience.

Our software offers multiple tiers to suit your specific reporting requirements. Additionally, we provide custom reporting capabilities and can recommend report types that align with your company’s size and growth stage. 

Automate end-of-life processes through our app

With Revivn’s API and webhooks, customers can automate end-of-life processes, creating predictable and recurring workflows for all employees.  

Here are some examples of processes that can be automated with Revivn’s app: 

  • Device retrieval for remote employees. For instance, if an employee’s status changes to “Terminated” in an ITSM, this action automatically triggers the process of sending a box to their house to collect their device
  • Automate the reconciliation process and status change with your ITAM 
  • Automate the removal of devices from enrollment programs (for example, Apple DEP) 
  • Schedule a pickup when you generate a disposal list in your ITAM 
  • Ingest and store CODs in your ITAM

In this post, we’ve explored the many ways Revivn is redefining hardware lifecycle management. By choosing to work with us, your company not only benefits from cost effective, secure services, but also aligns with a vision for a more sustainable future.
