  • Capability of creating and restoring Windows, MAC OS X and Linux disk images
  • Flat monthly fee, no cost per unit charges
  • Billed monthly with no punitive exit charges or clauses

Aiken’s breadth and depth encompasses virtually every device that an IT refurbisher will handle in today’s marketplace. Aiken automatically detects the specifications of PCs, Macs, Android/Apple smartphones/tablets, monitors, printers and other devices. It retrieves and normalises device data ensuring reports and data exports to ERPs are presenting consistent information for all assets without manual intervention.

With a free-of-charge trial of Aiken Workbench V2, refurbishers and ITADs may evaluate the software prior to buying. We were pleased that we were able to perform a proof of concept and see in our own environment the impact Aiken makes.
