Digital transformation is quickly becoming a new normal, especially in the business world. Enterprises are changing the way they interact with other companies and colleagues, and this change has provided more opportunities for collaboration and networking. Now, there’s no need to worry whether or not an employee can physically be present for a meeting, because digital transformation allows for the creation of virtual studios and office spaces so colleagues and team members can join from the comfort of their homes and collaborate more efficiently than ever. Digital transformation has increased communication and networking efficiency by providing more time for connecting that we would otherwise spend commuting, but what does this concept mean for the ITAD industry?
There’s no doubt that digital transformation has had a positive impact on communication and business growth, both in the business world and in our personal lives, but a technology focused world means more technology that will inevitably need to be recycled. For enterprise IT asset managers, end of life processing raises a few concerns such as management capabilities and budget. These concerns are alleviated by using a responsible ITAD service provider.
With every new load of IT assets that need disposition, ITAD enterprises like HOBI International Inc. are responsible for tracking and managing every single piece of technology from the time it is received, to the recycling or resale stage. However, with the rise of technology being used in the world, a major concern for a tech-based future is the overflow of IT assets needing to be managed in ITAD warehouses. An overflowing warehouse raises budget concerns for not only transportation, but storage space and labor costs as well..
Another concern is the amount of data being managed. Every piece of hardware stores exponential amounts of data, which is carefully managed and protected throughout each step. Data security should be top priority when it comes to client satisfaction, and delays in the ITAD process can lead to prolonged storage and increased risks of data breaches. Organizations should not leave their old equipment sitting in a closet or storage room for any longer than absolutely necessary. Getting your equipment to an ITAD service provider quickly can decrease the risk of a data breach.
There are many concerns in the IT asset disposition industry in the age of digital transformation, but establishing an efficient IT asset management plan with an experienced ITAD provider will help mitigate any possible obstacles that may result in the increase of technology being utilized in the world. Creating a positive, safe work environment and effective communication strategies for employees can help limit possible labor shortages and contribute to a quick, smooth order of operations. Security measures such as locked storage cages and security cameras decrease risks of data breach and ensure peace of mind for clients.
The IT asset disposition process can be tedious, but the safe disposition of electronics is important in establishing a clean, sustainable environment. HOBI focuses on maximizing economic return and the elimination of potential environmental liability.
