Should My Business Look For IT Asset Recovery Services?

recycle it equipment

At some point, your business will probably need to upgrade your computers or IT equipment. Even the best computers from the most reputable brands will become outdated over time, which can hold back your business’s productivity.

Even if your business’s computers are old, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to purchase new ones. Many computers can be repaired and upgrades and used in your business for many more months or even years.

However, if you decide your business can truly no longer use your current IT equipment, you may want to liquidate those items for revenue that your business can invest in other ventures.

Your business may also benefit from IT asset recovery services if your business is downsizing or moving, if you are looking for more ecologically-friendly equipment, or if you need to eliminate the costs of storing unused IT equipment.

There are many companies all across the country that provide IT asset recovery services. Here are three things to consider when choosing a company to provide your businesses with these services.

Cost

There are many companies that will charge you a fee for picking up and disposing of your old IT equipment. They justify the cost because they have to use their time, employees, and equipment to do the pick up and process your items. However, these companies will usually make a commission from the sale of the equipment itself. Look for a company that does not charge a pick up fee on top of fees for their recycling services.

Data Destruction

While these companies should safely and securely destroy any data on your computers’ hard drives, some companies without a good reputation will not do so. We have heard of hard drives from computers at hospitals arriving to their next user with patients’ information still on them. This means your business’s or your customer’s sensitive information may be floating around out there for anyone to view and potentially use with malicious intent. Make sure to choose a company with a good reputation and method for data destruction to protect your business.

Environmental Factors

Lastly, make sure the company you choose recycles equipment in an environmentally responsible way.

Hopefully these tips will help you choose reliable IT asset management services to maximize your business’s revenue and achieve your goals. Contact us today to ask about the asset recovery services we can provide for your business’s needs.
