IT systems vendor Eurocom is looking to build on its enterprise hardware trade-in platform by offering new system options combined with legacy hardware donation services.
The company said that the Corporate Trade in Program allows enterprises to retire existing hardware and receive Eurocom PCs and server systems at a 20 per cent discount.
Eurocom is hoping that the programme will lure customers looking to replace legacy IT hardware with newer systems.
Eurocom president Mark Bialic told V3.co.uk that, while outdated technologies such as CRT monitors will not be redistributed, enterprise hardware that could still be of use for educational platforms will be refurbished and handed over to non-profits.
"The whole idea is to provide these technologies that are outdated in hardware, but up to date in key technologies," said Bialic.
"The objective is to make companies more responsible for reuse of the technology and involve local communities instead of recycling the traditional way."
Eurocom is also pitching the platform as a way to help non-profit organisations. Rather than dispose of or recycle hardware collected from trade-ins, the company will redistribute the hardware to groups such as educational institutions and training centres.
"The Corporate Trade in Program allows companies to upgrade ageing desktop-centered hardware to newer, portable and efficient computer technology without a major impact on their IT budget," said Eurocom corporate sales manager Matthew Thompson.
