If your company has storage filled with old technology, it’s probably time to do something about it. Summer is here, business is slower, so get ready for the fall by doing some asset recovery!

What is Asset Recovery?

“Asset recovery, also known as investment or resource recovery, is the process of maximizing the value of unused or end-of-life assets through effective reuse or divestment. While sometimes referred to in the context of a company that is being liquidated, Asset recovery is also used to describe the process of liquidating excess inventory, refurbished items, and equipment returned at the end of a lease,” CleanBayArea explains.

Three main steps for IT Asset Recovery

 

Identification

By keeping your unused technology devices in the storage room, your company is actually losing money. So it is crucial to identify what equipment you can get rid of.

Redeployment

By digging in your storage room, chances are you’re going to find some equipment that could be used in a different department of your company. You may not need that printer, but somebody else might. Redeployment will enable your company to save money by avoiding the purchase of new devices.

Disposition

Some items might just be too old, or maybe you just don’t need them anymore. That’s when your certified IT disposal company comes in. IT asset recovery and disposal companies are there to guide you through the steps of a secure and eco-friendly way to get rid of your old equipment. Whether it is to recycle or refurbish and re-market your equipment, your ITAD (IT Asset Disposition) partner, will help you find the most cost-effective solution.

Data Security

It is very important that sensitive data is erase and destroyed by professionals. Many hackers go through abandoned technology items to find and sell confidential data. Data breaches, can cost a lot of money to your company, so to avoid it, the solution is simple – find a certified data destruction company.

Stay Green

If your equipment can’t be resold, recycling it is the best solution for your company and the environment. IT equipment is filled with toxic components and is not biodegradable, causing pollution of land and water. Furthermore, having a “green” image, could lead your company to get more customers.

Gain Time

Some ITAD companies will handle your disposal projects from start to end, so that you don’t have to waste your time with it.
