SMR serves in five areas of the ITAD space, including data destruction, decommissioning, redeployment, remarketing, and recycling of retired IT equipment and hardware. A key component that sets SMR apart is the company's own in-house developed platform called SmartERP. The most technologically advanced platform to be developed in the industry, SmartERP enables a total chain of custody while providing flexibility, security, and transparency to all parties involved. SmartERP updates in real-time so clients can simply log into the system and see exactly where their material is during SMR’s patented eight-step process, from pickup request to the issuance of a detailed Certificate of Disposition.
SMR Best Practices
To ensure compliance, data security, and safe practices along every step in the recycling process. SMR manages the entire electronics recycling process without the use of subcontractors, we directly handle all electronics by our own staff. SMR can continually improve and offer an economical and efficient recycling solution that is environmentally safe and responsible.

What Makes SMR Different?
SMR is the industry leader in finding companies efficiencies in the reverse supply chain relating to old IT assets (computing, mobile, telecom, storage, auto, and more). Critical technical capabilities lie in our maintenance and continuous growth of our “partner network” at all points in the supply chain (ODM/OEM, 3PL/reverse logistics, end-users, and even other material recovery providers). SMR strives to increase valve for our clients while minimizing risk and maximizing revenue.
We disposition excess End-of-Life (EOL) IT assets and buy back essential parts, to extend the ever-shortening product lifecycles in our increasingly hardware-centric world. We provide a tiered software visibility solution that allows our partners to track disposition transparency while also joining a greater sharing economy to close the loop on their repair liabilities. Our circular design solution produces highly sustainable results that are more economical and at a pace that is quicker than the industry standard. This allows everyone in the network to collectively combat any external actor who is leveraging destruction to increase their revenue by creating parts scarcity.
