For many larger organizations in the area, the concept of San Francisco asset recovery and remarketing can be an attractive way to recover technology costs. With technology changing at an extremely rapid pace, San Francisco asset recovery and remarketing has especially become attractive to smart teams that need to ensure their employees are fully productive with fast, modern devices.
However, there are a lot of considerations for organizations who are interested in pursuing a San Francisco asset recovery and remarketing project for their IT equipment. Our team of IT equipment recycling experts has created this guide to help you through the basics.
Get in touch with our team
The first step in your project should be to get in touch with our team for a preliminary discussion of your needs and the scope of your project.
Of course there is no commitment during this preliminary discovery process, so we strongly urge you to start a dialogue without any worries.
Have a deep review of your inventory performed
Once our team is in touch with you, it’s important to discuss the inventory you have on hand that you’re looking to remarket.
Since the main goal of these projects is typically to recover as much cost as possible, knowing how much inventory will be involved, how old it is, wear and tear, and other considerations are helpful to know when determining what will be required for the project and how feasible remarketing will be for your organization.
For large organizations, this is usually a mapping process and feasibility is more certain. For smaller organizations, there is less discovery necessary but feasibility analysis becomes more important. For all organizations, timeline and deadlines are also an important consideration that can influence how the project unfolds.
Set realistic expectations
Along similar lines to inventory analysis, it’s important to set realistic expectations for yourself and your team. At NC Computer Recycling, our customers are generally very happy with the amount of cost they can recover via our remarketing services, but for inexperienced team members who aren’t very familiar with market rates for used IT equipment, it’s important not to let people hear “recover cost by selling technology” and have them create an overly optimistic impression.
Our team at NC Computer Recycling is always confident that we can maximize the possible returns on your equipment through our marketing practices and network of IT equipment buyers, but it’s always important to keep expectations realistic when discussing plans with external teams.
Make sure data security is covered
If your team is like most, you likely have an unspeakable amount of private, sensitive data on the devices that you want to recover costs on via remarketing. Of course, you can’t simply send these devices off to market without taking some protective steps.
At NC Computer Recycling, we also specialize in helping our customers with data destruction. When customers bring computers, laptops, servers, enterprise IT equipment and other devices to us, they rest assured knowing that we provide services for data destruction that are based on well-respected industry standards set forth by the Department of Defense and NIST.
Don’t overlook this step – while it likely isn’t your top goal with your IT asset recovery and remarketing project, not addressing data security properly can be disastrous for your team.
