Xperien is the first ITAD provider in Africa to achieve certification to the new Sustainable Electronics Reuse & Recycling (R2) Standard v3. In this podcast, Xperien CEO Wale Arewa discusses how the company’s latest certification represents a unique opportunity for American and Canadian IT channel companies to participate in the world’s fastest growing economic regions with a partner offering a unique level of services. Arewa describes how his company offers a higher level of equipment processing and recycling that is the highest level that can be found among over fifty rapidly growing economies. Arewa discusses how data breach is common in Africa, where governments have been slow to impose fines and even full regulatory standards. Many international companies have growing operations on the continent. Xperien offers a place where enterprises can confidently dispose of gear coming offline, knowing that the data will be wiped properly and the gear itself properly repurposed or disposed of. Arewa tells us Xperien is looking to build a set of new relationships with North American resellers as long term supply partners.
