Circular Computing launches RaaS to help businesses re-use tech

Circular Computing, a remanufacturer of laptops, is announcing the roll-out of Remanufacturing-as-a-Service (RaaS), to larger businesses across the UK and other geographies.

The launch of RaaS will see Circular Computing take in current or incumbent laptop estates from companies and send them through its own Circular Remanufacturing Process to give laptops a second life.

At a fixed cost of £150 per laptop, the remanufactured laptops are built to serve another full lifecycle of use. Remanufacturing is rooted in the circular economy and helps to prevent overconsumption of additional resources, avoids e-waste from the disposal of old hardware, and reduces the pressure of supply issues on an already strained tech industry.

Rod Neale, Founder, and CEO, Circular Computing said, “the founding principles of Circular Computing were to disrupt the tech industry, so that it protects the future of our environment, planet, and respective industries. The industry’s current model of taking, making, and replacing is both unsustainable and outdated making it ripe for disruption.

“We now have the technology and expertise to be able to prolong the lifecycle of existing technology to ensure precious natural resources are protected and old hardware does not add to the concerning e-waste crisis.

“Our new RaaS offering is an industry-defining move, which offers larger companies the opportunity to reuse their hardware at scale, more sustainability and cost-effectively, without a loss in quality or performance.”

The remanufactured laptops are certified as equal to, or better than new, by the world's first BSI Kitemark. Through the unique Circular Remanufacturing Process, laptops are made brand new both cosmetically and in performance. This ensures that all fleets of laptops are remanufactured to BS standard 8887 saving businesses up to 70 per cent when compared to buying brand-new laptops.

Steve Haskew, Head of Sustainability at Circular Computing added, “high-quality, reliable second-life hardware is the solution to the growing e-waste crisis our industry faces and the mounting sustainability challenges that organisations in every industry are dealing with.

“The introduction of our new RaaS offering democratises access to the innovative remanufacturing processes we have built over years of experience, meaning businesses can make substantial changes to their operations and meet important ESG targets without spending more money.”

Companies from all industries are facing similar pressures, to go net-zero and cut costs while continuing the need for the latest technology to serve their workforce. Reducing Scope 3 emissions is a key step toward a carbon-neutral future and the launch of RaaS by Circular Computing is an innovative approach to help organisations further their ESG focus.
