Like many other industries, the computer industry has its own share of unethical businesses that will try to exploit uneducated buyers. Xperien has warned against fly-by-night uncertified computer refurbishers that are taking advantage of unsuspecting customers.
 
Ongoing financial pressure has helped boost the refurbishing industry as businesses streamline their IT budgets and become more innovative in their purchasing decisions.
 
Xperien managing director Alvin Peacock says refurbished electronics is fast becoming the preferred alternative. “Refurbished products can be purchased at a portion of the price, but provide a far better price versus value specification when compared to buying a new one.”
 
“However, consumers need to ensure refurbished products are refurbished and certified by a trusted and accredited refurbishing factory that offers adequate warranties and return policies,” he warns.
 
Xperien has introduced an industry standard called Certified Refurbished System (CRS) to ensure refurbished systems are ISO certified and audited. The CRS trademark offers a stamp of assurance and a promise to deliver quality, value for money and integrity in every product sold.
 
With the increased demand, Peacock warns consumers to beware of uncertified refurbishers that are popping up everywhere. “We have introduced these standards and will gladly certify refurbishers who are interested in becoming compliant.”
 
CRS products that have been through factory grade processes that are certified and audited by ISO 14001:2015, ISO9001:2015. They also offers a 12 – 24-month warranty on electronics so that customers can buy with piece of mind knowing that they have purchased from an accredited reseller with aftersales service.
  

Xperien (Pty) Limited is the African leader in Secure IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) services and received Environmental Management System (EMS) ISO 14001:2004 accreditation for refurbishment and redistribution of redundant IT assets and equipment.
 
The company manages millions of devices annually, disposing of them in a sustainable manner and in compliance with the laws of South Africa (PoPIA, NEMWA & CPA).
