Kitting Center

The customer arranges shipping of computers and smartphones from the manufacturer to our warehouse. The equipment is safely stored, if necessary a restricted area can be created.

PCs can be imaged with the company image, if there is any required configuration or stickers as we will apply those as required. Afterwards the PC can be shipped to the end user anywhere in Japan. Next business day delivery is available for most of Japan, only remote islands will need longer shipping times. It is possible to have localiced stock in places like Okinawa or Hokkaido for faster delivery.

Broken or end of life computers can also be returned to the warehouse for repair or disposal. If required we can also issue a LoreaTec signed data safe erasure certification, third party certifications such as Blancco are also available upon request as well as disk drilling service.

Throughout the process all devices can be tracked, we can use a customer provided tool or customers can also be on-boarded into our own tracking and database tool.

Managing IT assets while securely handling your data

We provide worry-free IT asset managing solutions, including, hardware repair, kitting, responsibly recycling your electronic scrap, securely handling your data, packing, crating, shipping, tracking, and warehousing.

NBD delivery is available in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and most prefectures in Japan for orders made before midday. For remote sites such as Hokkaido and Okinawa, 2BD is the standard. For critical operations same prefecture warehousing can be set up for faster delivery.

For this example project we provided parts storage and quick replacements. When the customer had a PC or smartphone with a hardware problem, we would immediately ship a replacement, then once the faulty is received it will be repaired and put back in stock for future replacements.

Optionally when the user does not want a replacement, the same PC can be repaired and returned without touching the data. We request all customers to use encryption so that there is no way that the data can be altered.
