Topics covered:

  • Security: Upon receipt of your devices, PlanITROI wipes them to DoD/NIST standards, documenting the process with chain-of-command reporting.
  • Social impact: PlanITROI’s Digital Dreams Project aims to close the digital divide, passing along gently used devices to disadvantaged groups, with a focus on families of Black and Brown students.
  • Sustainability: PlanITROI works on two fronts — they ensure that tech departments are able to expand their budgets and purchasing power (including receiving OETC credit) and keeps devices out of landfills and in the hands of those who need them.
  • Guaranteed highest prices for Chromebooks: With transparent pricing, you can get up to $50 per device for select models.
