When it comes to IT asset disposal, our customers benefit from our wealth of expertise in compliance, governance and industry. Our solutions will reduce costs on in-house processing, staff training and asset storage, reduce the risks of data loss and corporate fines and maximise your residual value from asset disposal. With a full audit trail and chain of custody plus smart reporting and asset stock control, the disposal of your assets is in safe hands.
Rapid evolution in the IT industry, and the maturity and migration to cloud services, leaves many businesses facing the ever-growing challenge of managing the retirement of their legacy, and now defunct, assets. This, combined with the broad range of data protection laws, financial governance, and environmental compliance, has created a very fluid situation that is difficult to navigate.
There is a lack of understanding of compliance rules around data and waste disposal as well as industry standards. There’s also a lack of experience in processing these requirements, staff skills and training for asset disposal. This creates a very uncertain environment, leaving many companies exposed to the risks; the risk of data loss or breach, risk of corporate fines and reputation and risk to the environment.
What businesses need is guidance, support and the reassurance that they’re doing the right thing. They need help not only to dispose of legacy assets properly but also maximise the return on end-of-life equipment.
Our consultants specialise in advising customers on current policies, procedures and methodologies to mitigate risk, reduce costs and remain secure. Working closely with them, we create and operate a secure asset disposal service which is fully compliant with waste directives, legal regulations and compliance schemes.
We perform initial asset discovery tasks including audits (desktop, data centre and stores), risk assessments and reviews of asset management, regulatory controls, data classification and sovereignty, sanitisation policies and disposal, recycle and resale procedures.
In any IT Asset Disposal programme, there are typically four phases of implementation:
Phase One: Analyse and Review
Phase Two: Logistics and Storage
Phase Three: Process and Sanitise
Phase Four: Reuse, Resale, or Recycle
In this stage, Bell’s consultants engage with the customer to determine the final destination for assets, realisation of any residual value via resale or trade-in, or ultimately recycled as base materials. This includes thorough consideration of:
