supporting micro & start-up businesses
We don’t just believe in helping the bigger guys – we believe in uplifting and growing the South African economy from grassroots. That’s why when we can’t help a micro business that doesn’t qualify for finance we assist them with leasing Refurbished IT. These are laptops, desktops and printers that have come off-lease, have been fully refurbished – and are now affordable and accessible to micro’s and start-up businesses.
supporting our planet
We care a great deal about our planet and one of the areas where we’re able to make a responsible impact is around green computing. We do this by combating electronic waste through correct disposal and e-waste recycling methods & standards.
In addition, our approach is to maximise the beneficial use of technology by our multiple re-use strategy. Practically, when the IT assets come off-lease instead of scrapping it we first re-use it by utilising it in Short Term Hire. Secondly, by refurbishing and re-selling it to first time IT users and start-up businesses via our affordable & accessible e-commerce platform Half Price Computers. In this way these machines live many lives and help many people whilst minimising environmental pollution through re-use.
