IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) Services

Helping to keep valuable data secure, offering environmentally responsible choices, simplifying operational workflows and providing a greater ROI is precisely what our IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) suite of services is designed to do.

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 including:

  • Enterprise systems
  • Storage arrays
  • Desktop devices
  • Smartphones
  • PDAs
  • Flash drives
  • And more.

Not only does our ITAD suite of services provide a sophisticated solution for IT asset decommissioning, but can also be combined with one or more of our other service offerings to provide even greater scalability. These add-on services include:

  • Secure on-site or off-site data erasure
  • Disk and tape shredding
  • IT asset inventory and audits
  • IT asset redeployment
  • IT asset resale.

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 help to 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 to replenish our spare parts inventories. Even if your IT asset has no residual market value, it may be worth something to us.

Reducing risk while protecting people and the environment.


We take the safety of employees and the health of the 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.

  • Data is secure 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, including the Basel Convention.
