When it comes to IT equipment, asset management can be just as important as asset disposition. Upon retiring IT assets, it is time to find an ITAD provider for disposition. Many companies are content to hand off their old hardware and wash their hands of it. Out of sight, out of mind, but IT asset management has many facets, including data security and reverse logistics. Before settling on an ITAD provider, here are some aspects of ITAM to consider.
IT asset management covers how your IT assets are managed throughout disposition, and a strong management system lays the foundation for a reliable disposition process.
Data security is a top priority for most companies, but many are unaware that data is vulnerable even after the equipment has been retired. Until data sanitization occurs and all data is wiped from the device, private enterprise and employee data can be accessed if IT assets are not managed properly. End-of-life facilities like HOBI take special security measures to ensure client peace of mind when storing IT assets. HOBI utilizes padlocked cages as well as security cameras to protect IT assets. In addition, devices are heavily padded and stored so that no damage can occur.
IT asset management also includes reverse logistics. When IT assets are transported from point A to point B, accidents are always possible, and it’s important to partner with an ITAD provider who will prioritize the safety of your equipment. HOBI provides reverse logistics services throughout our service offerings to ensure reliable, secure, and efficient asset transportation. Our logistics team provides comprehensive on-site services, including data erasure and asset decommissioning, as well as fully insured packing, crating and documentation.
IT asset disposition relies on a strong asset management infrastructure, ensuring that every piece of hardware is accounted for and handled with caution throughout every step of the disposition process. With more than 30 years of industry experience, HOBI is an IT asset management and disposition enterprise that prioritizes client satisfaction and offers full transparency when taking care of IT assets.
