Youchange is able to manage their collections events and sell used products because of the proprietary software it has built over the past two years. This software allows youchange to analyze individual items to determine the best method to extend that products life – recycle, refurbish or immediate resale. The software then serializes the items, lists them for sale, manages payments and shipping and even determines the best days to post and sell items online based on its proprietary algorithm. This software makes it possible to efficiently manage these events and return the highest value possible back to the schools.
Additional contests are currently being planned for 2013 and include a 100-school challenge for January and February and a 200-school challenge for next Earthday! Youchange has plans on expanding nationally and opening new centers to reach the over 100,000 schools in the United States alone.
