Hospitals Save Money Buying Recycled Computer Parts
With a ballooning number of baby boomers hitting their golden years, requiring surgery, physical therapy and life-saving efforts and, the addition of the “me” generation (post baby boomers who spend more on healthcare than their parents did), it is no wonder that the medical care industry is one of the largest consumers of computers and computer parts. Hospitals and medical offices around the world now use the computer for every of aspect of their business. Whether it’s accounting and administration, complex laparoscopic surgeries, diagnosis of disease or networking among medical professionals sharing unique health conditions in their research studies, computer technology is the essential tool today’s medical professionals admit they could not be without. It is virtually impossible for humans to simultaneously track every movement of patients’ internal organs, but computers do it with ease.
As healthcare cuts sweep the nation and the burgeoning demand for healthcare increases, hospitals are encouraged to be more savvy with their technology maintenance and spending. Purchasing recycled equipment and parts, where possible, has literally saved them millions of dollars.
Code Micro has been and, continues to be, a significant supplier for these often difficult-to-find parts to the healthcare sector. A great example of a hospital saving money buying recycled computer parts is Loma Linda Hospital in southern California. Loma Linda is among the many customers that reap the benefits of buying recycled computer parts. And a great example of computer parts organization like Loma Linda Hospital save big money on are genuine EMC Symmetrix replacement parts. Not only are they saving money and consequently saving their patients money, they are contributing to the “green” cause which, in its self, is nothing to sneeze about!
My neighbor has a parcel of land next to my home with nothing but dirt and rocks on it, and yet, he goes to huge lengths to protect his pile of dirt. Chain link fences and “No Trespassing Signs” would suggest he has something intensely important to protect. Perhaps there is an entrance to a secret underworld that only he knows of. He marches off the perimeter of his property daily just to ensure a rabbit, coyote or, Heaven forbid, a human walking a dog has not breached his formidable security. I wonder if he’s this careful with his home computer security. Does he have a triple password, a thumb scanner, or perhaps even more importantly, a back-up power supply?
Do you have a back-up power supply? A battery backup to your redundant power supply? Perhaps you do, but it is time to check the condition of your battery modules in your UPS (an example of new replacement battery modules is the APC Symmetra SYBT3 battery module)? If you lose power, you lose access, business is down and you could even lose important files. My neighbor is a little OCD about his pile of dirt but protecting your business computer systems is essential. If you don’t have a back-up power supply, or need assistance with replacement old battery modules on your APC Symmetra SYBT3, don’t despair. Code Micro’s got them for you. New and refurbished – best prices, best service, nicest people. Unlike my neighbor, Code Micro wants you to come see them. Visit http://www.codemicro.com for all your computer and peripheral needs.
We received several requests earlier this week for codemicro.com review popular computer components. What is a category of IT equipment most commonly in demand right now? What is a strategy to assure your IT gear runs optimally and without fail? A popular computer component we will review here today is the powersupply: why do they break down so often and what can be done to mitigate risk of failure?
It seems that computer power supplies, various types and sorts of powersupplies from small AC adapters (for example the IBM 83h6339 AC Powersupply) to the big powersuppliesfor rackmounted networking equipment (for instance the Compaq-163744001-Refurbished), seem to go out quite often. This is a problem because these powersupplies are critical to operating computer equipment at their peak and making sure that they function correctly. So why do they go out so often? Our customers report that power supplies break down because of the moving parts such as fans, and are prone to overheating (they also have parts that specifically overheat such capacitors) and this can often cause failures. Powersupplies also endure much stress, such as power surges and power outages which contribute to failures. And of course many powersupplies run 24/7/365 so they get much wear and tare. Therefore there’s the need to make sure that your power supplies are working at top condition. What can be done to mitigate risk? One common tactic (having saved many an IT professional’s career!) many of our clients adopt is to make sure they are stocked up on spare power supplies for their most critical equipment (servers, data storage equipment, network communication equipment and the like). At codemicro.com we specialize in provide our clients with mission critical powersupplies and help stock up on spare and backup powersupplies. Visit us today and select from our vast selection of powersupplies by all major manufacturers, or pick up your phone (call toll free: 866-419-6615)and speak with our trained IT professionals to assist you with your powersupply requirements. You can never prepare too much or too soon.
Stay tuned for upcoming codemicro.com reviews of popular computer replacement parts and strategies to help you manage your IT equipment.
As Valentine’s Day approaches – love is in the air, but we can’t always afford to have what we’d truly love especially when it comes to our computer systems. Every minute of the day computer manufacturers around the world are churning out some 400 plus million units of PC’s and servers, tempting us with the latest technology, purporting them to be the greatest, the fastest, the most user-friendly, the most energy-efficient and tomorrow – it’s replaced by something even greater and more omnipotent. The point being the computer industry is an ever evolving machine churning out tomorrow’s replacements. What a vicious trap they set and what of the waste?

Did you know that, in general, the original owner of a laptop only keeps it for three years before it’s disposed of?! A cell phone is kept for even less time, on average 2 years before it’s tossed. Tragically, 85% of all e-waste does not get recycled, amounting to more than 3 million tons in the US alone. And it is not only cell phones and laptops, but even the large servers and networking equipment which are routinely thrown out. Such a waste! Imagine, when you’re looking at larger items like APC Power Modules or Nortel Passport Power Supplies. The toll on our landfills, not to speak of our wallets, is staggering. We have decided to do something about that.
Re-using and recycling IT hardware is not only good for the planet, it saves you on average 70% over the cost of replacing with new! This is why at Code Micro we specialize in quality refurbished computer equipment to keep your business running: popular brands like Sun Sparc, IBM X series, HP servers, Dell Servers and of course APC and Nortel equipment.

Have you ever gone shopping for that special gift only to discover that the one store you thought might carry it has completely sold out? Nothing is more frustrating, right? Around this time of year it seems to happen a lot, yet for some reason people still choose to buy in store rather than online. Well when it comes to hard-to-find computer parts, we suggest you go online first before shopping at a local parts retailer.
Whether it’s Holiday season or not shopping online can save time and money. With so many online computer part vendors to choose from, the power is really with you, the consumer. With that being said the hard part is actually choosing between the different online suppliers for your first purchase. If you are satisfied with that initial purchase then you can feel at ease shopping there for future online replacement parts and don’t have to spend time looking at other retail websites. For those of you who are not so lucky here is a “how to guide” for finding the right on-line retailer.
How To Choose The Right Online Computer Parts Supplier
The technique for making the right online purchase of computer and computer-related parts is to have a general idea of how to canvass prices across different retailers. While computer products typically have a standard suggested retail price, online stores may dictate their own pricing due to the special nature of their business—shipping and handling costs, premiums due to the item being discontinued, limited availability, and other factors can affect values. But not all prices have to be of the expensive variety.
It’s entirely possible to buy computer parts and pieces for far less than their usual price. One way to go about this is to search for inexpensive used computer parts, which can still perform optimally. Another method is to look out for items, which will soon be replaced by later models—outdated parts are sure to have costs much lower than current ones. But how do you know if a supplier also provides timely deliveries, exceptional customer service, and a quality product?
Upon visiting an on-line computer part retailer look out for testimonials, guarantees of satisfaction, delivery, and customers service as well as look for customer reviews of particular products. Trust worthy suppliers will offer guarantees of different varieties and customer reviews of particular products will help give you a real idea as to the value and quality of that product.
In the end shopping online is the best way to save yourself time, money, and energy. During the holiday season or even over the average weekend you can expect that ordering online is much more convenient that visiting a local store. Using the tips above to find the right computer parts supplier will make your choice of shopping online that much easier.
