in-company sales

What to do with used computers and laptops in a company?

Aging electronic equipment in a company can be a problem – computers and laptops that no longer meet requirements and are registered as fixed assets in the company, tend to take up storage space. 

  • How do you get rid of old computers and laptops in a company?
  • How to sell fixed assets that are no longer needed?

A specialized tool for in-company sales, SilentClicks, will allow you to turn unwanted equipment into additional revenue – find out how it works.

Old electronic equipment in a company – issue or opportunity?

Technology is constantly providing new solutions to meet the growing needs and requirements of companies. As a result, electronic equipment in companies is increasingly being replaced by newer models. The difficulty in this situation becomes storage, but also effective disposal of equipment such as old computers and laptops, which are fixed assets of the company.

Getting rid of unnecessary items from the company generates difficulties, concerning:

  • depreciation of fixed assets,
  • transferring equipment to other companies,
  • safe disposal of electronics,
  • selling equipment that is still usable.

Fixed asset depreciation is a process that involves the gradual loss of value of a piece of equipment Depreciation of fixed assets in accounting is done in the same way as liquidation, but depreciated equipment can be sold.

The sale of depreciated electronics must be done through the issuance of an invoice, and therefore tax must be paid on the resulting income. Such action is an opportunity for you to generate additional income in the company and at the same time get rid of unused laptops or computers, but also other equipment, unnecessarily occupying space in the warehouse. 

Selling depreciated fixed assets is the best way to get rid of old equipment. Other options, including even liquidation, require additional activities that do not bring any profit to the company, and are time-consuming to organize. 

Safe disposal of electronics is ensured by handing over used equipment to special companies that liquidate waste in an environmentally friendly way. By choosing this option, you are probably giving away the opportunity for additional revenue to someone else. Even with completely broken equipment, precious metals, including gold, can be recovered from it, for example.

How can you sell old computers and laptops in a company?

Organizing a sale of old computers and laptops in a company can seem like a challenge, especially with the large number of equipment you want to get rid of. Or with the assumption that some employees perform their duties completely remotely. Contrary to appearances, creating a bargain on old company electronics doesn’t have to be difficult.

A specialized tool for in-company sales, SilentClicks, was created to implement the sale of depreciated equipment in companies, so it is ideal for creating purchasing opportunities for your employees. The intuitive interface, clear functionalities and simple rules turn the challenge of an internal sale in a company into a prospect of quickly and effectively getting rid of unnecessary items with the possibility of generating additional revenue.

Through the SilentClicks tool, you can create a sale zone with a list of all laptops, computers, printers and other equipment, accessible only to invited email auction participants – your company’s employees.

How to make an internal sale with SilentClicks?

To use the specialized tool SilentClicks in organizing an internal sale of unneeded equipment in your company, all you need to do is register from the SilentClicks tool website. 

The process of organizing an internal sale using the SilentClicks tool is contained in a few simple steps:

#1 Creating a list of items and preparing offers

Before listing your chosen equipment on SilentClicks, prepare a list where you write down everything you want to sell: the names of items, the quantity available, a brief technical description, photos, and the amount you would like to receive for the item. Once you have such a list, it will take you just a few minutes to make an auction on SilentClicks.

Creating an auction through SilentClicks is done from a simple form: you fill in basic information about the item, add photos and a description.

#2 Selecting an auction type and setting the duration of the auction

In the offer creator, in addition to entering basic information about your items, you can choose one of three auction types:

  • Buy Now,
  • English auction,
  • Increment offer.

Buy Now is the simplest form of conducting an auction – you set an amount that you consider adequate to the value of the item, and it is at this price that auction participants can make a purchase. 

If you decide to choose a sales bid with an English auction structure, the invited participants bid for exactly as much as they declare, taking into account the predetermined minimum bidding amount. In this type of auction, there is no bidding mechanism. The system suggests the highest bid at the moment, and a participant’s bid cannot be lower than the bid of the bidding leader.

Increment offer is a type of auction in which auction participants can raise the bid in two ways: for the minimum raise amount set in the form, or by predetermining the maximum bid they are able to offer for the product. In the second case, it is system that will automatically raise the bids of other bidders using the post bid mechanism. Participants do not know what the maximum bid is, and the winning participant can buy the product at a price lower than his or her maximum bid, as long as other participants do not raise that bid.

#3 Invitation auction participants

Auctions on SilentClicks are closed – that is, only your invited company employees have access to your sales area and can participate in auctions. 

Inviting participants is done when you create each product listing, but the SilentClicks tool allows you to modify the list of participants in your auction later.

Depending on the chosen license, you can invite from 10 to 250 auction participants, or, in the case of the Enterprise package, an unlimited number of participants.

#4 Waiting for the auction to end

When you publish an offer, your auction is active and participants can bid or buy items in real time. 

A Buy Now auction ends when the transaction is finalized, and Bidding continues until the time you set when creating your bid. If your item is not sold in the time you set, you can reactivate your bid.

#5 Completion of the formalities of the sale of items

The right to purchase an item from an auction type auction is given to the participant who offered the highest amount. Then all that remains is to issue an invoice for the item and wait for payment, and fulfill the participant’s order in one of two options: courier delivery or personal pickup. The SilentClicks tool does not charge a commission on sales, so all the profit goes to your company’s account.
