Wisetek doubles its online sales since the launch of Wisetek Store
Wisetek, a global leader in advanced IT asset disposal, data destruction, technology reuse and manufacturing services, has doubled its total e-commerce sales since launching its consumer e-commerce brand, Wisetek Store, in October last year. . The volume of IT equipment sold through the Wisetek store has grown rapidly since its launch, with sales volumes now matching Wisetek’s pre-existing e-commerce channels, which primarily targeted businesses.
Wisetek Store was launched to allow consumers to purchase high quality refurbished computer hardware including laptops, smart phones, tablets, keyboards, computer mice and a range of other hardware options without having to pay high prices for new items. The new site also serves as a further demonstration of Wisetek’s core value of sustainability, as more than 2,000 laptops have been refurbished and given new life since its launch.
Wisetek has also partnered with Trees on the Land and pledged to plant a tree for every order placed on Wisetek Store. Over 5,000 native Irish trees have been planted across the country in the first round of tree plantings, in conjunction with Trees on the Land.
Sean Sheehan, CEO of Wisetek said “Wisetek is delighted with the strong response we have seen from customers since the launch of the Wisetek store. Launching a stand-alone consumer brand has been an important milestone for our business, and over the past year we have seen the significant demand that exists in the market for refurbished items. Consumers, and especially young people, are increasingly aware of the sustainability of their purchases and how what they buy affects the world around them. It has been extremely encouraging to see the strong sales growth we have experienced since launching the site, and particularly recently to coincide with the start of the school year.
Every item listed on Wisetek Store goes through a rigorous evaluation process to determine its suitability, during which the material is thoroughly tested. All existing data on the device is erased and the equipment is refurbished if necessary before it is certified to be listed and sold on the site.
iPads have proven to be the most popular item since the site launched, and the company has also added gaming laptops, iPhones, and 10s.e Generation MacBooks in its catalog for a year to expand its offer.
Wisetek has grown exponentially since it was founded in Cork by Sean Sheehan in 2007 and has expanded its international presence to include installations in Ireland, UK, USA, Middle East and Thailand.
To date, Wisetek has erased, certified and destroyed 13.7 million hard drives, registered and processed 19.2 million computer parts and recovered 1.75 billion euros worth of computer components for reuse for its customers across the world.
