The rapid evolution of technology has led to a digital age that requires constant upgrades and maintenance, becoming more costly to maintain every year. Over the last few years, the digital divide has increased tremendously, creating a large chasm between those with access to technology and those without access.
Experiencing a pandemic thrust the world into a new norm, where many companies began working remotely. This created a new demand for technology, as many employees upgraded personal devices, and others purchased additional hardware required for conducting business from home.
However, maintaining upkeep for IT equipment can become costly, especially now that new models of certain electronics can amount to the same price as a mortgage. Rolling out new models each year can also take a toll on the environment due to the amount of raw materials mined to manufacture new devices.
Value-added IT asset disposition services are an expansion of the core ITAD service offerings that go above and beyond traditional solutions to provide extended value for IT assets nearing the end of their use. These additional services represent a significant change in industry standards as the future of IT asset disposition, or vITAD, a term pioneered by HOBI to describe the evolving ITAD landscape.
Re-imaging and asset redeployment are vITAD services designed to maximize the value of retired IT assets. Not all IT assets that have reached the end of their use are at the end of their life. Asset redeployment maximizes the value of old IT assets and saves budget funds by utilizing assets already in storage rather than purchasing new items. Re-imaging often occurs before asset redeployment, where an ITAD provider wipes the hard drive entirely and installs a fresh operating system.
The redeployment of IT assets reduces the need for manufacturers to unnecessarily exhaust more raw materials for new devices and contributes to fostering a sustainable environment. HOBI prioritizes the best option for the environment when processing IT assets and maintains legislative compliance. HOBI provides redeployment and remarketing services for devices that have not yet reached their full potential. Redeployment is beneficial to consumers as well as the environment in multiple ways.
