IQ reseller the #1 IT Reseller ERP leverages the certified secure data erasure and hardware attribute reporting from Blancco.

MINNETONKA, Minnesota USA, April 12, 2011 – IQ reseller the #1 IT Reseller ERP software specifically designed for IT resellers and recyclers who sell, service and maintain the global IT infrastructure, including IT asset disposal (ITAD) professionals, has announced a strategic partnership with Finland –based Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions.

By integrating with Blancco’s data erasure and hardware reporting software, the IQ reseller ERP system obtains hardware details needed for re-marketing computer servers, notebooks and IT assets. Both Bill Blegen, President and founder of IQ reseller and Kim Väisänen, CEO and Co-Founder of Blancco, believe the complementary nature of Blancco and IQ reseller software supports the niche market of IT resale and refurbishment with out-of-the-box efficiencies that are unrivaled in the industry.

“Our relationship with Blancco is a natural fit, as we serve the IT hardware reseller or recycler with technology specifically designed to expedite processing and remarketing of IT assets while maximizing profitability,” said Bill Blegen, President of IQ reseller. “Integrating IQ reseller and Blancco functionality will save a tremendous amount of work for resellers who need such relevant data for their remarketing processes and to provide customers the most value for their assets in consignment contracts. In addition, those recyclers who previously sold goods by the pallet and pound to other IT resellers on a wholesale basis will now have the capability to dramatically increase margins by selling directly to end user customers since IQ reseller will have the information to accurately represent the attributes and value of the product for resale.

“As developer of the world’s most certified data erasure solutions, we are excited to join forces with IQ reseller in bringing Blancco’s proven technology to an expanded group of recyclers and ITADs worldwide,” said Kim Väisänen, CEO of Blancco. “This relationship ensures Blancco’s software shares essential information for the hardware sales process with the IQ reseller system in an easy-to-use, searchable format, while also creating erasure reports for customers who entrust resellers with secure end-of-lifecycle processes as part of IT asset management policy.”

The IQ reseller ERP system works with the Blancco Management Console, an online solution for handling all aspects of IT asset disposal within a WAN/LAN, including hardware IT asset management and data erasure reporting. The console integrates with the IQ reseller system to support user creation of default attribute templates for a wide range of IT assets, ranging from notebooks and rack mount servers to blade servers and smartphones. Each serialized IT asset is populated with up to 20 of the most critical attributes for maximizing remarketing value in online auction sites like eBay, or in the seller Ecommerce storefronts. IQ reseller’s detailed attribute inventory can be linked to Ecommerce stores to provide buyers the ability to search and purchase IT assets not simply by category or manufacturer, but also by attributes such as processor type and speed, memory type and speed, disk capacity, screen size, video card type, operating system or any other attribute of interest to potential buyers.

In addition, Blancco Management Console provides resellers and recyclers with comprehensive erasure reports they can send customers as proof of data removal for compliance with a growing number of data protection regulations.

As the world’s most certified data erasure software, Blancco’s data erasure solutions adhere to all major government and military erasure standards for overwriting data on hard drives. Blancco software removes all data — even on hidden and remapped sectors – while providing a detailed, auditable erasure report for proof of compliance. From computers and servers to smartphones, netbooks and mass storage devices, Blancco solutions deliver advanced data erasure technology to the widest range of hardware in the industry.
