As computer hardware reaches the end of its usable life, IT departments must deal with the dual threats of securely destroying data and responsibly disposing of electronic waste. Dealing with these threats has forced IT staffs to invest in things like cold storage and space rental to store assets before they can properly dispose of it.
To determine how many assets exist, at what quantities, locations etc. North American Systems asset disposition specialists go through a evaluation process with the end-user. They can verify an existing audit, or go through the discovery process to determine if it qualifies for our IT asset disposition services. After this process is complete, we will make an offer for equipment has value on the open market.
North American Systems has a program where enterprises can dispose of any amount of their assets in an easy one-step process that only requires you to pay for the cost of shipping.
Once an IT asset enters our disposal facility, it is immediately received and tracked by machine, model, serial number, condition, etc. This allows for explicit asset tracking of equipment throughout the entire disposition process.
We have a number of data destruction options available, including a software-based data wipe, degaussing, or shredding.
As each piece of equipment gets processed and disassembled. the various components are analyzed in terms of their specifications and condition, to determine if it has any value on the open market.
