SaaS tech companies come together to repurpose unused office furniture and equipment to businesses who need it most.
CHICAGO, IL, March 11, 2019 — Rheaply is excited to announce a partnership with Jellyvision, an award-winning technology company and maker of benefits communication software ALEX®. Jellyvision will be using Rheaply’s asset exchange platform( AxM™) to donate unused office equipment and furniture to local organizations and businesses who need it most.
The partnership is in support of Rheaply’s broader mission to help organizations get the most use out of their existing assets by facilitating cross-functional and cross-organizational resource sharing.
“Jellyvision’s offices are drowning with old technology and equipment like used computers, cables, adapters, desks, and chairs,” said Eli Golden, Director of IT at Jellyvision. “In the past we have either donated, recycled, or sold this equipment — but who knows where the equipment is actually going. Rheaply gives us an internal network of businesses, schools, hospitals, or other organizations that have a specific need for our unused equipment. It’s a win-win for Jellyvision and the organizations who receive our repurposed appliances: we reduce our clutter and provide free appliances to those who need it most.”
Rheaply began as way to address underutilized resources in R&D. CEO and Co-founder Garry Cooper surveyed 120 academic researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago who expressed the desire to sell extra laboratory provisions in surplus. After a successful pilot with Northwestern University Feinberg School, Rheaply is being used by leading organizations as a way to capture the value out of their existing assets and resources, whether that’s by better utilizing the items already in possession or becoming more aware third party organizations in need of those resources.
Rheaply’s platform goes a step further to make sure the landfill is left out of the equation by providing a suite of on-site listing, rental services, and if necessary, liquidation services.
“Jellyvision is a market leader in technology, people, and culture,” said Cooper. By partnering with Rheaply, Jellyvision sets the standard for how leading technology companies should think about their impact on their community and the environment while operationalizing cost savings and efficiencies. We couldn’t be happier to have Jellyvision as a part of the growing companies designing out waste and inefficiencies through Rheaply’s Asset Exchange Manager.”
Jellyvision CEO Amanda Lannert sees the partnership as an opportunity to connect to and support the growing Chicago tech scene and surrounding communities.
“Our mantra at Jellyvision is straightforward: be helpful. For this reason, we’re extremely excited to partner with Rheaply to donate electronics, appliances, and furniture that need a good home,” said Jellyvision CEO, Amanda Lannert. “To support an organization that helps the greater Chicago tech and business community by providing them with the equipment they need to grow seems like a natural fit and a great opportunity.”
