CHAMPSYSTEMS DEFINES REFURBISHED EQUIPMENT
ChampSystems, Inc. is a full service Green IT company that specializes in supplying hardware and system integration service for a wide array of computing environments. Our customers include a wide array of B2B customers, maintenance companies and end users wanting to maximize budget dollars without sacrificing quality or service.
ChampSystems provides refurbished systems, which range from the latest offerings to several generations removed. Our mission is to deliver the highest quality products and services at competitive prices to corporations.
When people think refurbished, they typically think “old”, “broken”, “discarded as useless,” or “buying someone else’s problems.” That is a huge mistake! Not understanding and integrating refurbished equipment into your IT strategy can cost you thousands of dollars on the acquisition cost of your computer equipment.
Refurbished Equipment falls into the following categories:
• Excess Inventory
The computer business is very competitive and people go out of business. When this happens their inventory is liquidated through auctions or large inventory clearinghouses. ChampSystems buys from these channels and resells the equipment after thorough testing to verify the integrity of the system. This equipment is typically in pristine condition and in its original packaging. Often there are units that are still in their original sealed packing.
• Damaged or Traveled Box
Have you ever ordered the “wrong thing?” or, ordered the “right thing” and were shipped the “wrong thing?” In the multi-billion dollar world of Computer and Technology orders and shipments this happens as well. If a unit of equipment has made the trip from manufacturer to channel distribution to the end user and then sent back it is called “Traveled Box” or “Damaged Box Equipment.” This equipment cannot be sold as "new.” This equipment, very often still is in “factory sealed” packing. The box may be slightly damaged on the outside but the product inside is in perfect working condition. When the equipment arrives at ChampSystems it is thoroughly tested to verify integrity. Because it has never been put in service it carries the full new product warranty!
• Open Box Return
Did you ever buy something and the product was what you thought you needed, but after you got it home it was not? So you took it back to the store and got a refund. The product still worked but you returned it because it did not fit your needs. The same thing happens with PC’s, printers, and servers. The only difference is that it cannot be sold as “new equipment.” As above it gets discounted and sold through clearinghouses that handle many manufacturers. Again, equipment is thoroughly tested to verify integrity
• Demo/Trade Show Unit
What happens to that “hot new product” you see at the trade show before you can even buy it? It becomes available as a refurbished “demo/trade show unit” when the product becomes “generally available” through normal channel distribution. Manufacturers and resellers also offer demo units to preferred customers for 30/60/90 day trials. In the event that a particular unit does not fit the needs of the particular customer it is returned. These units with latest generation part numbers cannot be sold as new and go through the same channels. ChampSystems buys, test, and resells this equipment. Carrying the latest generation part numbers, demo/trade show units are barely used, set up by trained professionals, and good as new.
• Off Lease/Trade-in Equipment
Business leases on equipment can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. We buy equipment that has been in service and then taken out of service. It can be taken out of service for every possible business reason that equipment is not needed anymore. This can be a business failure, departmental change, project requirement change, or change in location just to name a few. This equipment is bought, tested and resold through ChampSystems.
• End/Near End of Life
As we know the computer industry is a fast growing business with new products emerging continuously. New products come out, distributors & manufacturers need to purge inventory and give space for newer technology. Often a product is available for resale when it is only a couple months old. It needs to be moved because distributors require a newer model. Sometimes the only difference may be a color change or a larger memory amount in a certain product. These become available for resale offering you, the consumer, a significant price cut.
Where does refurbished equipment fit in your enterprise?
Everywhere, ChampSystems fully test the equipment prior to shipment and Hewlett Packard services it in the field. So refurbished equipment goes everywhere: Mission critical, application, file and print, database, mail, transaction processing, desktop…basically you name it.
Who buys refurbished equipment from ChampSystems?
Microsoft, Boeing, State Farm, 3M, state and local governments, hospitals, colleges, large & small businesses. Really anyone who has taken the time to evaluate the true benefit of saving money and stretching their IT budget to get the best and most technology for their dollar.
