Chicago, IL – Oct. 19, 2017 CDI Computer Dealers announced today that over the past ten years, it has deployed more than 2.5 million recertified computers and notebooks into North American K-12 schools. CDI Recertified I.T. equipment are business-grade machines that undergo a rigorous 16-step recertification process by certified technicians and then are loaded with a genuine Operating System for deployment into schools.

CDI’s CEO, Saar Pikar, commented on the quality control system developed by the company: “We spend a tremendous amount of time and effort in making sure that the units we recertify look and function like new and run the latest software programs used in schools today.”

CDI is a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR), and all units have genuine Microsoft operating systems. Before being sold, each device goes through another round of automated diagnostics and manual tests at CDI’s 120,000 sq. ft. facility. Tests conducted by the company showed that CDI Recertified products resulted in lower failure rates than brand new equipment. The CDI Recertified program offers a $0 Cost of Ownership Guarantee and roughly 60 percent lower prices than comparable brand new units and is a proven way for schools to get to one-to-one faster while remaining within their budgets.

In the United States, the recycling rate for small consumer electronics such as computers and notebooks is a low 40 percent. Global recycling rates for e-waste are even lower, ranging from 15 to 20 percent.1 “The CDI Recertified Process allows us to recycle over 90 percent of incoming I.T. equipment back into the North American market, mainly to school districts,” added Pikar. “By combining recycling with reuse we help schools get high-quality I.T. equipment at affordable prices while making all stakeholders in the IT product lifecycle responsible stewards of the environment.”

LocknCharge Now Responsible for Charging, Storing and Deploying Over One Million Devices

MADISON, Wis. (August, 23, 2016) - As educators aim to increase the use of devices in the classroom this upcoming school year, LocknCharge, provider of solutions that increase accessibility and usability of technology, celebrates a milestone of storing, charging and deploying over one million devices. Through their variety of basket-based mobile deployment carts, LocknCharge has helped enable 1:1 learning while saving teachers an average of an hour a week in school districts such as the Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD). When CVUSD, a district with 19,500 students in 22 schools that cover an area in Thermal, Ca. as large as Rhode Island, realized that only 16 percent of their students that went on to college graduated, they looked for ways to change their culture in order to better prepare their students for the 21st century. Though CVUSD is one of the poorest school districts in the country, superintendent Dr. Darryl Adams set out to become the first school district to provide all P-12 students and teachers with Apple iPads. The district realized that they also needed a solution to manage over 20,000 devices. With the help of LocknCharge’s EVO 40 cart, CVUSD has accomplished the goals of its 1:1 program with the seamless introduction of the tablets into every classroom.
