"Free" seems like a strategic marketing tool, but the results are usually mediocre. Free mouse pads look generic, free tee shirts are too big, and a person only needs so many free water bottles. Companies don’t benefit from a "one-size-fits-all" answer; they require customized solutions.
With Ombligo, free consultations aren’t a blanket marketing campaign. Instead, each evaluation is tailored to address your company’s needs. Send Ombligo your surplus IT equipment and Ombligo will send you a Fair Market Valuation (FMV). Now that’s a solution that fits.

New revenue opportunities
Ombligo provides value added services to customers even when they are not in a position to purchase new products or services.
All companies have cubicles filled with out-of-service IT equipment, e.g., computers, laptops, routers, switches, servers, etc. Ombligo converts IT equipment clutter into working capital for its customers and makes room for new technology.
With Ombligo, customers are not limited to equipment types listed in original equipment manufacturer trade-in programs. Customers can expand their trade-in options to include more equipment types, e.g., laptops, desktops and servers.
Customers can use the revenue generated from the sale of out-of-service IT equipment to finance a current project or reduce the cost of a future project.
Creating Shared Value (CSV)
Companies have a responsibility to their customers, shareholders and the communities that they serve.
Ombligo creates shared value for its partners which encourages innovation. This type of innovation is described by Michael Porter and Mark Kramer in their recent article in the Harvard Business Review. Michael E Porter and Mark R Kramer: Creating Shared Value; how to reinvent capitalism- and unleash a wave of innovation and growth ; Harvard Business review; January-February 2011
Porter and Kramer believe that the success of a company hinges on its ability to address both societal and economic needs.
Employee Purchase Program
Ombligo creates and manages employee purchase programs. Employee purchase programs allow companies to use their old technology equipment to generate goodwill, convert a liability into an asset and reduce their e-scrap output.
Facilitate Charitable Donation
Ombligo picks up, tests, properly licenses and donates (on behalf of its customers) refurbished technology equipment to designated charitable entities.
Sell IT equipment
Revenues generated from the sale of out-of-service IT equipment can be earmarked for charitable contributions to one or more organizations.
Ombligo has an ISO 14001:2004 certified environmental management system in place to ensure that it manages the environmental impacts of its operations.
Ombligo's environmental integrity inspires us to identify new and innovative ways of reusing and recycling IT equipment. Ombligo's environmental objective is to refurbish and resell "used" and "out-of-service" IT equipment while reducing and tracking electronic waste.
Ombligo regularly reviews our operations and procedures to drive continual improvement. We set performance targets for our environmental aspects and strive to reach them. In addition, we adhere to all national, state and local environmental laws and regulations that affect our operations. These efforts contribute to our commitment to prevent pollution.
Our belief is that Ombligo’s sustainability is not limited to our own four walls. For that reason, we collaborate with our clients to ensure we are improving their environmental operations by reusing or recycling their out of date electronics.
In addition, we closely monitor our downstream vendors to ensure that they are properly disposing of materials in an environmentally friendly way and in compliance with environmental laws.
