2023 is here, which means there is likely a lot of IT hardware lying around, ready for disposition. A new year typically means new IT equipment, and companies should have a clear disposition plan for old office hardware. But what does one do with unwanted, broken and retired IT assets? We’re glad you asked.

HOBI provides many beneficial services including, but not limited to, data security, comprehensive reverse logistics, mobility managed services and data center services.
Data Security: The most important facet of any enterprise is, first and foremost, protecting its data, and data security measures are crucial, even during disposition. HOBI provides top-tier data security in three security stages and uses an internally-developed data erasure tool, HOBI Shield®, that completely wipes all data from a device. Any device that cannot be erased is destroyed via shredding technology.
Data Center: Data centers are one of the most important and expensive pieces of equipment an enterprise can own, which makes decommissioning incredibly important. However, decommissioning can also be tedious and become a headache for many. In addition, because they hold sensitive employee and enterprise data, professional should oversee data center decommissioning. HOBI offers comprehensive data center solutions that minimize downtime and maximize return on assets, including installations, transitions, and asset decommissioning.
Mobility Managed Services: New electronics are released every year, and millions of people upgrade their devices every year, creating a plethora of used, unwanted devices. There is also a large portion of consumers who prefer to save money by purchasing used devices. HOBI focuses on maximizing asset value via repair and remarketing opportunities. By providing full-service, post-launch Mobile Lifecycle Management (MLM) for Mobility Managed Services (MMS), HOBI helps reduce the demand for brand new devices and provides maximum ROI.
Reverse Logistics: An essential part of IT asset disposition that often becomes an afterthought is transportation. It’s not just IT assets being transported, but data as well, and it’s important to find an ITAD provider capable of keeping your equipment and your data safe during transport. The last few years have created different work methods, and many still prefer working remotely. However, finding a flexible transportation solution that suits a company’s exact needs can be difficult.
