Most financial analysts are predicting a recession of at least some degree in 2023. To prepare for an economic downturn, companies must reduce spending in whatever ways they can, but without compromising safety or security. Quantum’s IT asset disposition (ITAD) and e-waste recycling services can help turn your business’s end-of-life devices into extra revenue — here’s how.
1. Delivering value when you need it most
Quantum can process your end-of-life IT assets when they’re worth the most, which is immediately after you’re done using them. In particular, late-model devices can be refurbished and resold, generating extra income for your business. For devices that are too old or beyond repair to be reused, we’ll do our best to find value through scrap metal recycling and provide compensation that way.
Regardless of which approach is taken, Quantum will maximize the value of your unwanted devices. This is achieved through our dual service offering, which is different from other organizations that offer only ITAD or e-waste recycling exclusively.
With that in mind, technology does age quickly. The ability to maximize value hinges on how soon you act. Allowing devices to sit idle will deplete their value, so be sure to contact Quantum proactively as you’re retiring IT assets.
2. Keeping your data protected
Enlisting a free service to pick up your end-of-life devices may be tempting when you’re trying to cut costs. Yet, the potential consequences are simply not worth the risk to your business. It’s never a good idea to take shortcuts with your company’s sensitive data, as it could easily wind up in the wrong hands.
Keep your company protected against potential legal action or reputational damage due to data leaks or other liabilities by turning to Quantum. We have industry-leading certifications and guarantee secure data destruction, with the ability to provide documented proof. Our physical hard drive destruction process conforms to NIST standards and is NAID AAA certified, while our erasure process is fully integrated with Blancco services.
3. Offering savings on refurbished devices
A final but important way Quantum can help you save is by offering refurbished devices at a steep discount through our partner, Qnovum. You don’t necessarily need to buy new when replenishing your IT infrastructure, so be sure to consider each device’s use case to determine if there are like-new devices that will still fulfill your company’s needs without costing more. In addition to devices such as laptops and phones, a broad range of IT equipment is available, including network and data center equipment.
Buying refurbished will not only allow you to stretch your IT dollar, but you can also purchase late-model devices with confidence. All devices are checked, tested, and if needed, repaired for core functionality. Everything sold through Qnovum comes with a warranty, so you can rest assured you’re receiving a quality refurbished device.
