Global Technology Systems Takes the Lead for Earth Day: A Free Recycling Program

Posted April 19, 2018

Today, April 22, is Earth day and it’s time to return the love to the planet we all call home. Thanks to Global Technology Systems (GTS) they will be providing a Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling program.

You may be asking yourself why do I need to recycle my batteries? Well, Lithium-Ion batteries consist primarily of chemicals and metals which in turn allow the battery to hold a long charge and remain light at the same time. These chemicals and metals consist of lithium, cobalt, and other materials that can be extremely harmful to the environment we live in. The improper disposal of these batteries as trash leads to water contamination, soil contamination, and among other things negative environmental/health outcomes.

The Recycling Process:

  • GTS will provide customers involved in the program with free battery recycling boxes at each enrolled facility.
  • Once the battery recycling box is filled, simply call the toll-free phone number on the box and it will be picked-up and properly disposed of by a GTS-certified recycling firm.
  • Once a recycling box has been provided to the recycling firm another recycling box will be provided to continue this free service.

Help make our Earth a better place to live, recycle the batteries that help power all of your mobile operations.

Global Technology Systems Introduces Battery Color Coding

Posted July 24, 2017

How old is the battery in your mobile computer? Some can’t answer that question and in that lies the problem. The greater the age in batteries the greater the chance of the battery not functioning properly; that being said it makes sense to have an easy way to distinguish the age of your battery. Global Technology Systems (GTS) is introducing Battery Color Coding, this service will allow you to easily distinguish the aging of your battery population and quickly determine the warranty status of your batteries. More importantly it will also allow you to identify, replace, and recycle the old batteries swiftly and efficiently. Each year GTS will be making different color batteries along with the standard OEM color. For example in 2017 (year 1) GTS will be making blue batteries, in 2018 (year 2) GTS will be making green batteries, in 2019 (year 3) GTS will be making pink batteries and so on. The colored batteries will have no additional cost from the standard OEM color.

Battery Color Coding will give you the following benefits:

  • Cut Labor Costs: Eliminates staff downtime and productivity loss caused by mid-shift battery failures.
  • Cut Battery Costs: Stock only healthy batteries in the appropriate quantities.
  • Cuts Service Agreement Costs: Many mobile device “failures” aren’t a device problem at all but a bad battery issue, allowing you to significantly reduce repair requests and help desk calls.
