When it comes time to recycle end-of-life IT assets, organizations have many options for service providers. Choosing the right one calls for careful consideration, and the decision should be made with your company’s compliance requirements, security needs, sustainability goals, and budget in mind.
Oftentimes, services that seem too good to be true indeed are. Having someone show up in a pickup truck without the ability to track where they’re going with your sensitive data could introduce tremendous liability. Instead, you’re better off partnering with a trusted, national service provider. With locations in several Canadian cities, Quantum Lifecycle delivers the following benefits to our clients.
A Smaller Environmental Footprint
Since we have multiple locations across Canada, fewer resources are needed for transportation. Single-location providers may need to travel significant distances to retrieve electronics and take them back to their only recycling facility. Quantum, on the other hand, has both on-site and off-site data destruction capabilities, including mobile trucks to perform hard drive shredding on site for your convenience. We also have recycling facilities, enabling both data destruction and reuse or recycling services at one site, which cuts back on transportation and the environmental impact it creates. By partnering with Quantum, your company minimizes their carbon footprint, too.
Well-established, national leaders like Quantum have a reputation to uphold. We’re committed to taking every possible precaution to ensure your data is handled securely through data destruction and reuse or recycling processes. Quantum is NAID AAA certified, which represents the highest level of data destruction certification available.
Every aspect of our ITAD process has foolproof security measures in place. We run thorough background checks on all of our employees, including those who will be at your facility and transporting your assets. After your assets have been retrieved, trucks are sealed and remain so throughout transportation to prevent tampering. With multiple locations, the time and distance of your assets’ transport is minimized. For any distance, we use satellite tracking for every transport to ensure your assets are fully traceable from the moment they’re picked up to their arrival at one of our locations.
In fact, Quantum has advanced tracking options available to provide visibility at every step. Once your assets arrive, you can track them by lot or serial number and receive certificates of destruction through our convenient customer portal. Since we provide both data destruction and reuse and recycling services, you won’t have to worry about your assets changing hands.
As a national company, Quantum has access to a broad range of resources. Our fleet of vehicles, multiple locations, and ability to offer both data destruction and reuse or recycling prevents us from having to outsource. As a result, we can keep costs at a minimum. Transportation costs such as fuel and vehicle maintenance are also lower. These savings are ultimately passed along to you, the customer, so you can enjoy quality services that still align with budgetary requirements.
Whether you’re seeking ITAD, reuse, recycling, or all of these services in one, Quantum offers secure and sustainable options to handle your end-of-life IT assets. We provide services across Canada at competitive prices. Find your closest location here.
