Synetic Technologies Realigns Its ISO Certifications to Meet the Highest Standards in Environmental Protection, Quality, and Health & Safety

September 16th, 2019

Synetic Technologies is one of the highest certified Information Technology Asset Management (ITAM) and Information Technology Asset Disposal (ITAD) firms in the U.S.

Not only do specific certifications confirm that your ITAD partner follows certified processes when managing, recovering value from, and disposing of your IT assets and their data, but also, they provide an industry-wide baseline for responsible, best practices in asset management to safeguard your company from liability.

Certifications give credibility to IT asset management and disposal firms, like Synetic, since they are affiliated with third-party organizations, like Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI), which is the housing body for the R2 TM Standard, the leading certification for electronics repair and reuse. The R2 certification demonstrates that your electronics equipment is being recycled with the highest standards for environmental protection, worker health and safety, data privacy, and facility security.

“Our clients lean on us to responsibly and strategically guide them in ITAM and ITAD best practices for maximum liability protection for their organizations,” says Ron Helmer, president and CEO, Synetic Technologies. “Since they operate in highly regulated areas and have IT assets housing highly sensitive and private information, we constantly are on top of the latest standards and realign our processes and services to match. More importantly, we certify our processes with NAID and ISO through global organizations, like SERI and its R2 Standard.”

Synetic Technologies realigned its ISO Standards to strengthen our position in the industry with certified processes in products and service quality, as well as employee health and safety. Synetic is certified in the following areas.
