While these are all important components of mobile asset management, the most overlooked component of a mobile asset manager is guaranteed compliance.

Securing an environmentally-friendly provider is not only a moral obligation but also a legal obligation. Electronics recycling and refurbishment laws, as well as data privacy legislation, are constantly evolving. Violation of this legislation can result in hefty fines, as well as overall reputational damage.

The best way to avoid leaving company mobile assets in the wrong hands is to pair with a certified mobile asset manager. Certifications, such as R2, perform regular audits to ensure companies are compliant with legislation and environmentally-sound.
