Smart IT Asset Disposition: Compliancy and a Maximum Return-on-Investment
PlanITROI’s experience in the ITAD (IT Asset Disposition), Recycling, and Value Recovery industry is, in a word, unsurpassed. The company and its founder, Paul Baum, developed the first “trade-up and trade-in” programs for IBM, Compaq, Toshiba, Texas Instruments, Panasonic, and Lexmark soon after PlanITROI’s founding in 1991. The company has continued to be an industry pacesetter; the lifecycle asset management programs that PlanITROI developed more than 15 years ago have since been copied by a number of competitors.
Changing the Industry in Fundamental Ways…Going Way Beyond Disposal
PlanITROI has changed the industry in fundamental ways. IT Asset Disposition has its roots in vendors who relieved their clients of unused IT assets for a fee and assets were recycled or sold wholesale; for whatever the vendor could recoup on the resale market, or for both. PlanITROI was the first to base its business on maximizing the resale value of IT assets, while maintaining compliancy, and on delivering a maximum ROI to its clients. Still today, PlanITROI beats its competition by remarketing more of the assets it acquires, more than 90%, and doing so at higher margins, thanks to its high-quality refurbishment process—one that is unmatched in the industry. That enables PlanITROI to market its services on the basis of how much money it can make for its clients, and how clients can sustain their IT budgets, and not merely on avoiding expense and liability for asset disposal.
The Industry’s Most Forward-Looking Approach
PlanITROI has also developed the industry’s most forward-looking IT asset disposition approach and service, one that makes it possible for clients to better plan their own financial futures. The PlanITROI approach addresses every level of data security as part of the ITAD process. Beyond the basics, however, PlanITROI helps and encourages clients to be proactive about their ITAD needs and about asset disposition, and not merely reactive to regulatory and other concerns. Two distinctive PlanITROI programs in this regard are the company’s Value Investment Protection (VIP)program and its Inventory Portfolio Analysis. Under these programs, PlanITROI provides end-of-life values for new equipment projected up to five years out, and backs those projections with its own commitment to buy the assets from the client at the projected prices.
Leading in Environmental Awareness
Over the past two decades, environmental concerns about IT asset disposition and recycling processes have become increasingly important to clients, to the government agencies that regulate environmental matters, and to the vendors that provide asset disposition services. PlanITROI has become a leader in this aspect of the industry as well, and sees its environmental safeguards as another competitive advantage. The company has a zero-landfill policy and it goes to great lengths to ensure that IT assets that are not marketable are broken down to component parts or elements and resold or safely disposed. The company’s downstream recycling partners are ISO 14001 and e-Stewards certified.
