KOLLEKTIV was created by a group of technology industry veterans that had a desire to create a new tech based solution to answer an age old problem in the business world:  “How can businesses improve their green initiatives and save money at the same time?”

 

The KOLLEKTIV way is a mobile and online platform for bringing together available assets that already exist in today’s business environment and connecting them to a need for those resources. By finding new homes for quality business products and getting additional use out of existing IT equipment, office products, instruments, machinery, medical equipment, and other items, businesses and individual people alike, can save money, recapture costs, and help save the environment all at once.

 

By allowing used but functional business equipment to find a new home it allows this equipment to be reused and saves the additional resources that would need to have to be used in manufacturing new items and reduces the amount of waste put into the environment as those new resources would be being created. The KOLLEKTIV platform is a win-win situation for the environment and businesses alike, as not only is KOLLEKTIV an eco-friendly resource, but it allows businesses to save money on equipment or supply costs. Additionally with KOLLEKTIV’s well thought out platform, shopping is quick and easy, allowing busy businesspeople to save valuable time.

 

KOLLEKTIV is a free service to connect buyers and sellers and offers area based searching so you can search just for products in your local metro area. Or if you want, you can search in other metro areas to find products for branch locations of your business. KOLLEKTIV is divided into convenient categories to make searching a snap or if you want, take advantage of the handy search functionality.  KOLLEKTIV has even incorporated a feature to allow you to save important searches.

 

We encourage community members to leave reviews on buyers and sellers to assist other members in their purchasing decisions. As you use KOLLEKTIV, you can watch your level on our proprietary Green Meter to show how green you are compared to other community members. You will also be able to earn awards along the way in recognition of your achievements.

 

Selling an item is easy with KOLLEKTIV as you can take pics of your item from the app as you load the listing.  Listings include room for 3 pics, title, keywords, location, a short description and a long description. Once your item is listed, KOLLEKTIV has made it easy to share on social networks to increase visibility for your item.

 

Why spend a fortune when you don’t have to? Quality business equipment can be found at used prices giving you an affordable way to buy the instruments, machinery or office supplies you need while shopping in an eco-friendly way. KOLLEKTIV is the smart shoppers’ choice.
