Most businesses are missing out on the opportunity to get money back for their used IT equipment. Efficient IT infrastructure life cycle management and secure IT asset disposition (ITAD) can help organizations maximize value at every stage of their technology investment.
ITAD service providers are fast becoming an important link in the overall life cycle management of IT equipment. Not only can they provide maximum value for IT assets, but they can offer professional data erasure and data destruction services that are essential to ensure a company’s sensitive information is protected.
Companies that manage IT asset disposition internally continue to struggle with data security and proper environmental recycling. It's crucial to find a professional ITAD provider that can offer data sanitization and destruction services to protect one's company data.
They should not only do this in an environmentally responsible way but must also save money at the same time. Effective environmental ITAD services are no longer a luxury, they have become a legal requirement.
It's a huge struggle for companies to keep up-to-date with regulations, compliance, and other legal requirements. This could be a threat to a company’s reputation and the financial impact of a security breach could be critical.
Reckless disposal of electronics is a huge source of illicit information and it often puts companies at risk. However, if decommissioning and data destruction is done correctly, a company's reputation is safe, the budget receives a much-needed boost, and business leaders have peace of mind.
Complete life cycle management is the commitment to maximize value at every stage of the technology investment. It’s the way businesses build, maintain, support and upgrade their technology infrastructure. When considering technology investments as a lifecycle, with each phase showing intent to maximize value, it’s easier to show success.
It is also an effective approach to becoming more agile, resourceful and proactive at recovering value. The aim is to identify methods to recover value at every stage without sacrificing quality or peace of mind.
With this strategy in place, business leaders can rethink how they approach every technology project. This will also help them redefine their expectations of what they expect from every technology acquisition.
Value recovery is a crucial part of the process, businesses need to receive fair market value for end-of-life and redundant IT equipment. Professional ITAD service providers normally offer to purchase these assets, this includes the collection, data erasure and reporting.
Finally, complete life cycle management ensures secure disposal of equipment by complying with relevant legislation and most importantly, receiving the best value for all redundant IT equipment.
