Remarkit are constantly thinking through better ways of doing things. Recently this lead to Remarkit developing a software application that enabled one of NZ's biggest financial institutions managing the tracking of their assets to a near on 100% accuracy. This saved staff time and ultimately the corporate made significant dollar savings.
Over many years Remarkit processes and systems been subjected to numerous security, OSH, financial and environmental audits. This scrutiny has resulted in Remarkit being very confident that its all-round systems are fine- tuned and robust to support any project. Remarkit currently hold ISO14001 certification. Recently Remarkit, after a competitive tender, were involved in a multi-million dollar project on behalf of the Government. Remarkit achieve all the goals set in the project and meet all the audited criteria which resulted in a high ranking Government official saying that "Remarkit have been professional in everything they have done through the 3 year project".
While it is true that no organisation is perfect yet Remarkit have manage to achieve some results that have been stunning. From running multi million dollars contracts on behalf of the Government to deploying thousands of computers over a few days/nights, to innovating national projects. All this hard work has resulted in Remarkit having a reputation as a business that can make things happen in a professional manner.

An important part of the decommissioning process is the removal of all sensitive data from hard drives or media that contains any sensitive data. To ensure integrity of this service we have, from time to time, engaged specialist forensic analysts to conduct internal auditing of our processes. On top of this a major International Corporate conducts monthly security audits on our facility and processes. Part of the audit involves randomly selecting equipment that has been security wiped and subjecting this equipment to a forensic program to try and recover data. This means our processing is constantly subject to scrutiny and has passed every time.
The results of this monitoring has meant we are extremely confident in our security wiping services. We believe our decommissioning process are among the best in the World. In fact a major financial institution after rating us against others in our industry rated us "number one".
Remarkit also have in-house shredders and hydraulic crusher to deal with any equipment containing sensitive data that cannot be security wiped effectively.

Remarkit have been on the forefront of the E-Waste recycling industry for many years. Remarkit have not only been an organisation that champions the need for sustainability, but also have been part of innovative solutions to this growing problem.
Remarkit initiated funding from Government to do the first ever E-Waste study in NZ. Remarkit were the first to apply for a Basel Permit to ship CRT Monitors offshore for disposal in an Eco Friendly way. Remarkit were at the forefront of initiating and organising the first ever E-Day in NZ.This was where consumers were able to dispose of their Computer waste for free. This helped to inspire a nation which has resulted in many other organisation, like ours, Councils and Corporates being involved in running E-Days in other parts of New Zealand.
Through our National and International Network we can organise the disposal of most IT Waste, aiming at diverting in the area of 98% from Landfill.
Much has been made of the pollutants that exist in obsolete IT equipment. For example a CRT Monitor can contain up to 3Kg of Lead. This poses a serious health hazard if the Monitor is just dumped at a landfill, for the lead has the potential leach into the soil and contaminate.
Initially the best way to dispose of equipment is to recycle back into "useful life" There are many groups, small business, schools and end uses that find great value left in second-hand equipment. As we re-use the equipment it becomes useful again right through its intended life span and beyond, which sometimes can be as much as 5 or 6 years later. So rather than equipment sitting in rooms where its useful value decreases daily, or dumped in landfills, it is better to get the equipment back into a situation of usefulness.
Over the last 15 years, we have commissioned, deployed and environmentally recycled over a one million customer assets working with organisations of all types and sizes across New Zealand and Australia. It became apparent to us over time that a large number organisations were struggling to track and manage their own assets across all elements of their ICT.
