Value-added IT asset disposition, or vITAD, is a term coined by HOBI International to describe the recent shifts in the ITAD landscape. Traditional ITAD services like logistics, data sanitization, certification, onsite services, etc., are expanding to accommodate the industry changes and now include additional services such as ERP integration, portal customization for asset tracking, asset redeployment, re-imaging, remote management, and ESG reporting.
vITAD services like remote management enable remote workers to receive ITAD services even remotely. During the pandemic, ITAD enterprises had to adjust business strategies to accommodate the new norm. To support remote workers, HOBI offers a remote box program that provides a solution to the continued challenges of updates and equipment refresh initiatives via safe strategies for the safe and quick collection, evaluation, and redeployment of equipment on behalf of our clients.
Another vITAD service that has been under a spotlight recently is ESG reporting. While many companies have jumped on the ESG bandwagon and begun developing client reports, many have also been uncertain about the value-added service and its purpose. ESG reporting is simply a snapshot of data revealing to potential investors a company’s positive impact on environment, social, and corporate governance. Many organizations have discovered ESG reporting to be a tool to attract investors and to show the company is meeting goals. Companies with strong ESG performance have noticed a higher return on their investment.
As the digital age continues to grow, so will the next generation of ITAD services. IT asset disposition is expanding, and vITAD helps bring world-class IT asset management and disposition services and mobility management needs to a diverse customer base.
HOBI implements vITAD criteria in all of our service offerings, including data security and erasure services, the remote box program for remote workers, fully transparent and traceable reverse logistics services, refurbishment and remarketing opportunities, and our R2v3, RIOS, and ISO 14001 certifications.
