Overview

With an expansive physical footprint and best-in-class technology, Sprout does processing differently. It's not simply equipment receiving, scanning, & diagnostics to us. We triage equipment with your best interests in mind. And through our value-added processing, we maximize your overall return in a way that distinguishes us amongst our peers. This is why our processing enables you to:

Earmark equipment for donation to local communities, with Sprout taking on responsibilities of diagnostics, re-imaging, and warranty

Coordinate devices for screen, clean, refurbishment, reformatting, and return

Designate equipment types for asset-level registration and others for bulk recycling

Determine every detail of your custom solution, even if that's to destroy everything to smithereens

Equipment Triage

As each equipment pallet is unloaded at a Sprout-designated facility, we apply a unique barcode (if one had not already been appended at point of pickup), capture detailed receiving photos, and provide a bulk weight breakdown. There is no lag between these activities occurring within the facility and in the portal, so you can see the entire triage process, even from thousands of miles away. 

If the equipment is comingled, Sprout operators will streamline the equipment into similar product categories. Once all the equipment has been triaged into conforming product categories, the pallets are moved into secure storage aisles, queued up to move through Sprout's processing lines.

System-Automated Processing

For product categories designated for asset-level tracking, the first step of Sprout's processing is to register the device by serial number, IMEI, asset tag, or other unique identifier. We also capture the device's make, model, and key attributes to provide you the most accurate records. Product categories designated for bulk processing are registered by weight and recycled without any monetization attempts.

Once a device is registered, the system can work its magic. Within Sprout's proprietary platform is a predictive analytics module called Load Builder. Load Builder scrapes our sales database and the web for the best related price to each newly registered asset. In seconds, it spits out a shortlist of potential monetization outlets and a benchmark of historical values. These outlets can range from selling a refurbished device on a specific B2C channel like Newegg to tearing down a particular device and selling high-demand parts to select extended warranty service providers with open POs at Sprout. Whatever the outcome, Load Builder instructs our technicians to process each asset in a manner that produces the optimal financial outcome.

Of course, if you can set up a rule, you can also break it. In the event that you don't want your devices to be remarketed, as a whole or in parts, you can build custom instructions accordingly. Down to the particle size to which you'd like to see your equipment shredded, Sprout's platform gives you the power of choice.
