When is a good time to Boomerang a device?

When workers leave

When people leave your company, their old device will be left to be wiped clean of data and new software to be added for a new starter.

Projects come to a close

You have invested in new devices for a specific project. When that project winds down, it’ll only be logical to repurpose the devices for elsewhere.

To create an asset inventory

It’s often hard to keep track of all the devices you have in use, but Boomerang ensures you’ve always got a go-to list of the ones not in use.

To save the environment

By keeping a device in circulation for longer, you’ll be limiting your e-waste from disposing of the device, instead of reusing it.

Four simple steps to Boomerang

Boomerang has no third-parties to wait around for or set up accounts with. It’s all handled by us!
