Providing IT leaders with smart options.

​​Our ITAD services suite provides IT leaders with the flexibility of having us perform a one-time IT asset takeout service, or an enterprise-wide, process integrated ITAD service for everything from enterprise systems to flash drives. Not only does our ITAD service provide a sophisticated solution for IT asset decommissioning, but it can also be combined with many of our other complementary services to provide even greater scalability. These add-on services include:

  • Secure on-site or off-site disk and tape shredding
  • Scheduled pick-ups of on-site hardware collection bins
  • Data center inventory and audits
  • IT asset remarketing and sales.

This smart scalability provides IT leaders with the options needed to create an extremely efficient ITAD process which is not only cost-effective, but can also generate a greater ROI for IT assets that are no longer usable in production environments. This increased ROI is a result of our IT hardware maintenance business and the need for us to replenish our spare parts inventories. Even if an IT asset has no residual market value, it may be worth something to SMS as parts.

Reducing risk while protecting people and the environment.

We take the safety of employees and the health of our environment seriously. Because of this, we provide businesses with a best practices framework to effectively manage the different types of risks they face, whether they are environmental, safety, legal, operational or client related.

As an e-Stewards certified business, we adhere to stringent standards throughout our recycling chain to ensure:

  • Data security through rigorous requirements for chain of custody and data destruction
  • No use of incinerators
  • No hazardous e-waste will end up in landfills
  • No hazardous e-waste is shipped to developing countries
  • Use of a management system to achieve legal compliance with all laws and standards, including those set by the Basel Convention.

We are constantly innovating and improving upon our service offerings to solve and simplify the challenges posed by the continually evolving IT environment that all IT leaders face. From small-scale IT hardware refreshes to ongoing, enterprise-wide ITAD, we offer a uniquely scalable ITAD solution to fit the requirements of businesses large and small, local or global, federally regulated or simply passionate about protecting our planet.
