Electronics have evolved with traditional hardware, including landlines, printers, fax machines, etc. Still, as technology continues to grow and change, non-traditional assets have become more utilized, leaving some in the industry at odds over how to process them.
Mobile devices are the most used technology globally due to their convenience. Smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, and laptops are among the most commonly used mobile devices for schoolwork, business, and communication. The problem is the rapid deployment of new models and increasing prices lead to hundreds of thousands of used mobile devices left in drawers or thrown away with municipal waste, or devices that no longer work due to slow processing systems and users who cannot afford a new device.
Data centers are another non-traditional part of the IT infrastructure that has become more necessary as the world grows increasingly digital. When enterprises switch to cloud computing, their data is stored digitally in data centers. Data remains on devices until properly wiped, which means large amounts of private company and employee data may become vulnerable to hackers if not disposed of properly.
Value-added IT asset disposition (vITAD) provides additional services for non-traditional assets like mobility managed and data center services. As the pioneers of the vITAD concept, HOBI International, Inc. provides a number of beneficial vITAD services that help clients navigate the evolving ITAD landscape while continuing to receive top-tier IT asset management and disposition services.
HOBI provides Mobile Lifecycle Management (MLM) for Mobility Managed Services (MMS) programs and prioritizes reducing e-waste with repair and remarketing opportunities. Our value-added services minimize the expensive costs of post-procurement support of enterprise mobility assets. HOBI focuses on maximizing the availability of mobile assets both during their useful life and during disposition. Our Dallas and Phoenix locations offer repair and refurbishment services for all models of mobile phones and tablets, and our remarketing opportunities help bridge the digital divide by helping to provide used electronics to those without access.
HOBI also offers comprehensive data center solutions that minimize downtime and maximize return on assets. Throughout each of our data center services, HOBI prioritizes security, efficiency, and value maximization throughout each of our data center services. Our data center services include project management, reverse logistics, data erasure, equipment removal, device remarketing, and device recycling. Data centers are integral to a business and should be left to professionals.
