E-World Online's e-MRG Software Projected to Manage 200 Million Pounds of E-Waste and Retail Returns Before Yearend
Company Announces Proprietary e-MRG Software Key to Electronics
Recycling and Reverse Logistics Retail Programs
ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- E-World Online, a
leading provider of comprehensive e-waste take-back programs for
electronics manufacturers and inventory management solutions for
national retailers, announced at ISRI Conference and Exposition 2013
will surpass 200 million pounds of end-of-life electronics and
returned merchandise managed through its Manufacturer Interstate
Take-back System (MITS) and Retail Return Program (RRP) by yearend.
E-World Online's proprietary e-MRG software powers both MITS and RRP,
streamlining the tracking, documenting and reporting (TDR) of any
material stream. According to e-MRG data, more than 120 million
pounds of e-waste was collected through MITS from 2010-2013 and an
additional 84 million pounds will be collected and processed in 2013,
while the RRP program, launched in June 2012, has already managed
over 14 million pounds of returned merchandise.
Sony Electronics Inc., Acer America Corp., ViewSonic and other
leading manufacturers have selected E-World's MITS as the most cost
effective solution for worry-free e-waste collection compliance.
e-MRG tracks the flow of materials from collection downstream to its
end point and documents the management of materials to confirm
everything is handled to the highest standard of environmental
responsibility. Unique to e-MRG is its ability to offer real-time
customized reporting, accessible anytime through an online portal and
tailored to an OEM's individual needs. MITS is the only electronics
recycling solution that offers OEMs this level of reporting.
"Clients choose our solutions because they reduce administrative
costs, maximize revenue and are environmentally sustainable," said
CEO Bob Erie. "But they also enjoy the oversight delivered by e-MRG's
TDR functions that allow them to see where materials are, how they're
being processed and their corresponding data. Time and resources
saved from administrative burdens allow clients to focus on the
innovation needed to grow their core business."
e-MRG is also integral to the success of E-World Online's Retail
Return Program, which makes managing retailers' returned merchandise
more profitable and sustainable. As part of the RRP, e-MRG gives
retailers the ability to point and direct the disposition of all
returned merchandise, not only electronics, so that they can maximize
revenue on items that can be resold, as well as provide audited and
environmentally compliant recycling on items that cannot. Costco
Wholesale Corporation has implemented, trained and deployed E-World
Online's RRP program in all of its U.S. warehouses, where it has
managed more than 1.1 million items equaling 14 million pounds of
