Retired IT assets can be a pain to get rid of, especially when a busy season starts. Most of the time, IT asset disposition is an afterthought, or put on the back burner for years at a time, which increases risk of data breaches. IT asset disposition facilities like HOBI take the trouble off of your shoulders, and handle all of your disposition needs. HOBI International is an IT asset management and disposition enterprise that prioritizes client satisfaction, and problem solving for old, retired IT hardware. Partnering with an ITAD provider eliminates the stress of figuring out what to do with old IT equipment, and provides many benefits to a business.
First and foremost, data security should be the top priority for any company, and proper IT asset disposition ensures the safety and protection of private enterprise and employee information. When IT assets are retired, or even destroyed, large amounts of data remain on the devices until it is properly erased. Partnering with an ITAD provider will ensure peace of mind that your data is in capable hands. HOBI uses an internally-developed data erasure tool, the HOBI Shield®, that completely erases any residual data, and any device that cannot be wiped is shredded to prevent any data leaks.
Most businesses end up upgrading their IT assets after a year or two in order to keep up to date on the latest technology, but sometimes these retired devices still have some use left. Finding an ITAD provider that offers repair and resale services not only increases monetary value in retired IT assets, but also creates an alternative sales channel for those who do not want to spend money on brand new devices. One of HOBI’s major focus points is maximizing economic return, and our refurbishment and remarketing options for eligible devices ensure that clients are getting the most value out of their IT assets.
Many companies are becoming more environmentally conscious, and incorporating greener methods to reduce energy consumption and waste production. In addition, certain businesses are becoming more selective with clients, and partnering with an ITAD provider ensures eco-conscious clients that your business is committed to reducing its carbon footprint as well. Proper IT asset disposition also provides an environmental approach to waste reduction, which helps meet new ESG criteria. HOBI is an R2, RIOS and ISO-14001 certified enterprise that focuses on mitigating environmental liability, and prioritizes maintaining industry standard compliance in every step of the disposition process.
IT asset disposition is not only important for the environment, but extremely beneficial to a business as well. Data security, refurbishment and remarketing, and environmental compliance are all provided when you partner with an ITAD enterprise.
