Remarketing


It sounds like you have a remarketing initiative for copiers as part of your reverse logistics facility. Remarketing refers to the process of reselling or reintroducing products into the market after they have been returned, refurbished, or remanufactured. In the context of copiers, remarketing can be a strategic way to maximize the value of returned copier units. Here are some key points to consider:

  1. Refurbishment and Quality Control: Before remarketing copiers, ensure that they undergo a thorough refurbishment process. This includes repairing any defects, replacing worn-out parts, and conducting quality control checks to ensure they meet industry standards and customer expectations.
  2. Product Certification: If applicable, consider certifying the refurbished copiers to assure customers of their quality and reliability. Certification can help build trust among potential buyers.
  3. Pricing Strategy: Develop a pricing strategy that reflects the refurbished copiers’ value. Pricing should take into account factors such as the copiers’ age, features, condition, and any warranty or service agreements.
  4. Marketing and Sales Channels: Determine the most effective channels for marketing and selling refurbished copiers. This could include online marketplaces, direct sales to businesses, partnerships with copier dealers, or other distribution channels.
  5. Warranty and Support: Offer warranties or service agreements to provide customers with peace of mind. Clear warranty terms and responsive customer support can enhance the attractiveness of refurbished copiers.
  6. Environmental Benefits: Highlight the environmental benefits of purchasing refurbished copiers, such as reduced electronic waste and resource conservation. Many businesses are interested in sustainable solutions.
  7. Customer Education: Educate potential buyers about the benefits of choosing refurbished copiers over brand-new ones. This could include cost savings, reduced environmental impact, and the availability of reliable products.
  8. Data Security: If the copiers were previously used in businesses, ensure that any sensitive data is properly wiped and that the remarketed copiers pose no data security risks to their new owners.
  9. Market Research: Stay informed about market trends and customer preferences in the copier industry. This can help you tailor your remarketing strategy to meet evolving demands.
  10. Feedback and Continuous Improvement: Collect feedback from customers who purchase refurbished copiers and use this input to continually improve your refurbishment processes and customer experience.

Remarketing copiers can be a profitable and sustainable business endeavor when done effectively. It not only extends the lifecycle of copiers but also provides cost-effective options for businesses in need of reliable office equipment.
