The cycle to rollout new technologies and upgrade networks is continuous. Keeping an accurate inventory for equipment going into and coming out of the network is what we do. Tellworks inventory accuracy is driven by our stringent warehouse procedures and reinforced by our proprietary inventory management software called AIMS, (Asset Inventory Management System). Our customers use AIMS to manage inventory, replenish spares, create BOMS and determine excess. AIMS reporting capabilities are utilized by all who require material visibility to plan, procure, receive, inventory, deploy, re-use, sell, and dispose of equipment.

As a processor Tellworks sorts and separates equipment by type and commodity. Material that has been processed is then stored and accumulated so as to ship like commodities by the truckload to maximize value by limiting handling and transportation. Our commodities manager monitors metal pricing daily and fixes pricing with our vendors on a per month basis so as to create predictability. Tellworks goal is to extract the maximum amount of recyclable material from the equipment we process while generating the minimum amount of waste.
