Ever wondered what happens to the old IT hardware when an office or company upgrades? IT asset disposition remains one of the most important aspects of any company, and due to the increasing use of technology in everyday life, it is becoming more important for companies to find an efficient way to dispose of their old office hardware.
There are many things to consider when choosing an ITAD vendor, and many services offered aside from the simple idea of retiring old electronics. New companies seeking a clean, environmentally safe way to dispose of their IT assets should consider topics such as integrated service offerings, secure logistics programs, facility security, data erasure, environmental impacts, vendor certification and more, all of which are offered and implemented here at HOBI International Inc.
When considering a plan for IT asset disposition, a secure logistics program is key in establishing a smooth and efficient disposition process for IT asset management. Find an ITAD vendor with a clear, concise, infrastructure that helps you track all of your IT assets through the ITAD process from on-premise electronics, to data erasure and refurbishment.
Facility security should be a top priority to ensure that no assets are compromised in any way. Safety measures your vendor should employ include camera installations inside and around the premises, implementation of metal detectors and security guards, and locked inventory cages for overnight storage.
Another priority should be data security. Clients are not only trusting you with disposal of old computers and cell phones, but also with the security of the data on those devices. HOBI International Inc. has three stages of data security including an internally developed, NIST compliant data erasure tool that completely erases and disposes of stored data. This is a service offered free of charge to clients, providing peace of mind while their hardware is processed.
Not every piece of hardware left behind has reached the end of its lifecycle. Some reputable ITAD companies will recognize the old IT assets that still have value and will be able to maximize a company’s ROI on those assets.
The recycling industry as a whole, including ITAD companies like HOBI, are committed to protecting the environment through safe, environmentally friendly waste disposal. When looking for an ITAD vendor it is important to find a company that complies with environmental certifications, rules and regulations concerning e-recycling. HOBI International Inc. is R2, RIOS, and ISO-14001 certified and guaranteed to choose the best course of action for the environment.
