Following a year of overwhelming change, one thing that has not changed is the importance of IT asset disposition. This year marks the first in-person ITAD Summit since 2019. Representing HOBI International Inc. this year is HOBI’s president, Craig Boswell, and Jason Radakovich, vice president of of sales in ITAD services.Craig is also scheduled to participate in a panel on the Unexpected Power of Mentoring on Wednesday at 4:15 p.m. PST.
The ITAD Summit’s annual trade show/conference is a great opportunity to network with industry experts and find an ITAD vendor that best suits your company. In a technology driven world, it is becoming increasingly more important to find a safe, environmentally friendly method to dispose of electronic waste. IT asset disposition is one of the most important decisions you can make for your company, but tends to be the last thing considered. E-waste recycling companies have never been more important, but how do you choose which company is right for you? Here are some things to consider when choosing who provides ITAD services for your hardware.
First, know what you want, and do the research. ITAD services include more than simply retiring assets, some ITAD companies offer different options for electronics that haven’t quite reached the end of their lifecycle. For example, HOBI offers a program that refurbishes and reconditions such electronics and resells them to the secondary marketplace.
Data security is arguably the most important area to consider when choosing an ITAD service provider. After deciding what ITAD services best suit your needs, find a vendor that puts your data security first. One way to do this is to find an ITAD provider that helps track your assets through the entire disposition process.
Managing your IT assets can be difficult if you aren’t familiar with the ITAD process. Touring a facility is a way to ensure that your hardware is being accurately tracked and your data secured. A tour also gives you a better understanding of how the ITAD process works in general.
Last, find an ITAD service that complies with rules and regulations of recycling electronic waste. HOBI International Inc. is R2/RIOS and ISO 14001 certified. For more information about HOBI and our ITAD services, contact us at email@example.com.
