IT Asset Disposition Services
Our IT asset disposition service is designed to keep your sensitive business data secure, maximize your ROI through repurposing or resale and/or minimizing the cost and ensuring regulatory compliance of IT asset recycling.
IT asset disposition is a key process in IT asset lifecycle management and should be of great concern for CTOs who want to ensure sensitive business data remains under their control. IT equipment, potentially storing critical data, will inevitably reach the end of its useful life and need to be decommissioned and disposed of.
Our first step to asset disposition is to determine the fair-market value of your decommissioned assets. Equipment with no market value is sanitized of data and recycled in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations. Equipment that has market value can be securely sanitized of data and resold.
However, SMS is in a unique position in this regard due to our IT maintenance business. In many cases, older equipment with no market value may in fact have value to SMS and can help to replenish our spare parts inventory, keeping the majority of old IT asset components out of landfills. This is an important differentiator when comparing SMS to most other IT asset disposition service companies, and a key component of our e-Stewards certification and environmental sustainability efforts.
SMS can increase your ROI even after your IT asset is decommissioned.
We are able to accommodate most any IT asset disposition requirements you may have. Below are packaged IT asset disposition services we offer to help you decide the level of service you require.
Packaged IT asset disposition services:
Fixed Price Takeout
SMS Fixed Price Takeout relieves you of the logistical headaches and liquidity risks associated with managing the sale of a retired asset. For a fixed price, SMS arranges for transportation and removal of your decommissioned IT assets, then will sanitize or destroy all media containing sensitive data and properly dispose equipment with zero value.
Shared Revenue Sale
SMS helps you recoup value from your retired IT assets. SMS will handle the resale of your old equipment that has retained market value and return a percentage of the sale proceeds to you upon completion. Products with little to no market value are broken down to component level and incorporated into our spare parts inventory, providing a credit back to you, or recycled in compliance with applicable environmental laws.
Our All-Inclusive℠ service takes the hassle out of asset disposition. This option is ideal for clients with an aggressive IT refresh plan who prefer a convenient way to dispose of IT assets on a regular basis. We arrange for regular pick-ups, storage, packaging, transportation, chain of custody reporting, inventory, asset verification and disposition. We test each item to identify its configuration and grade the asset to determine its fair-market value. Once completed, we will properly resell or dispose of decommissioned systems.
When the disposition of your equipment is complete, you will receive a detailed settlement report which includes information detailing:
- Whether hardware was resold or recycled
- Asset tracking information
- Certificates of erasure or destruction
- Non-functional hard drives that were destroyed
- Confirmation of proper disposal.
This detailed information is then easily accessible via singlePoint®, our secure, proprietary, web-based IT asset lifecycle management application.
Keep sensitive business data secure while you protect the environment with IT asset disposition services from SMS.
