Putting a device through testing and triage involves a comprehensive evaluation process to assess its functionality, condition, and potential for refurbishment or resale. During testing, the device undergoes rigorous checks to verify its key functions, such as power, display, connectivity, and performance. Triage, on the other hand, involves categorizing the device based on its condition and identifying any defects that need to be addressed. This process helps determine the most appropriate course of action, whether it's refurbishment, repair, recycling, or disposal.

Partnering with PTS Corp for your inspection and triage needs not only streamlines your returns process, but also ensures that every return is handled with precision and care. Contact us today to learn more about how our inspection and triage services can benefit your business and maximize your returns management efficiency.
