COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sage Sustainable Electronics has released a free beta version of the Sage BlueBook® (SageBlueBook.com), the world's largest source of pricing information for used computing devices. Cataloging millions of models from thousands of manufacturers, Sage BlueBook reports both wholesale and retail values based on device condition.
The Sage BlueBook provides an invaluable resource for planning upgrades and tech refreshes for consumers, small businesses, corporate procurement managers and asset managers – anyone who needs to know the fair market value of used tech, said Sage President Jill Vaské.
"Consumers and businesses often settle for less when trading in old computers, phones and other electronics due to lack of good pricing information," said Vaské. "Even non-working items have value for parts. With Sage BlueBook, buyers and sellers can see up-to-date pricing based on data from multiple sources."
The BlueBook was developed to support Sage's mission promoting reuse over electronics recycling, said Sage CEO Robert Houghton.
"Reuse is almost always the better financial choice, and extending the life of gadgets is always better for the environment," said Houghton. "We want everyone to use Sage BlueBook to ensure they're getting a fair deal when they upgrade."
To help consumers and businesses resell with confidence, Sage BlueBook includes informational pages about data erasure, and how to buy, sell, donate, and recycle used technology. Searching Sage BlueBook for items one at a time is always free to guest users. Registered users are able to search free for up to 10 items simultaneously, save their searches for re-appraisal at a later date, and print certified appraisals.
A Pro version will be offered which allows large equipment lists to be automatically appraised. Sage BlueBook Pro users will also be able to run future value forecasts, and will have access to secondary market indexes for major categories of computing hardware.
