Differentiators That Provide Real Benefits to Our Clients
The primary difference between PlanITROI and others in the IT asset disposition industry is philosophical: Other providers are reactive, and while they will help clients avoid liability and remove retired assets, they will only look to the financial value recovery secondarily. PlanITROI takes a proactive planning role that can start with asset acquisition and continue through the lifecycle and into asset disposition. It assures the provision of the highest levels of data security and environmental services, a simple yet thorough process, along with maximum financial returns.
PlanITROI Goes Well Beyond Basic IT Asset Disposition Services
See below for the full scope of our services.
All the activities associated with the removal of IT assets from any given site, anywhere in the world. Specific packing solutions are provided to protect equipment for secure shipment to the PlanITROI processing facility.
Warranty Check as Part of De-Installation
Before a client’s assets are de-installed and picked up, PlanITROI plans with the client when and if the assets are in or out of OEM warranty. When a client’s equipment is received at PlanITROI’s facility our audit technician is prompted to check the warranty. If it is still in warranty a special label is physically applied to the asset and indicated in our database. If an asset is defective PlanITROI will work with the OEM to get it fixed under warranty. Our clients will never receive a bill for any in-warranty repairs. PlanITROI is authorized in most of the top IT and electronics OEMs to perform warranty work.
Every level of data sanitization on PCs, servers, network equipment, telecom equipment, peripherals and all related media, is provided by PlanITROI. Learn more about our Data Security and DoD 5220.22-M compliant capabilities. For more details, click HERE.
Equipment Destruction & Certification
PlanITROI’s IT equipment recycling procedures are ISO 14001 and R2 certified and compliant with WEEE standards. The company’s downstream recycling partners are also ISO 14001 and e-Stewards certified. No non-functioning IT equipment or related materials are shipped overseas and a zero-landfill policy is maintained as recycled items are ground into their base components and remarketed to manufacturers. Certificates of destruction are provided. See Data Security and Environmental Compliance for more details.
For any client requiring equipment packing assistance, PlanITROI representatives will correctly and securely pack each unit. Items that could potentially be remarketed with will receive additional attention to mitigate the potential of damage during shipping.
Once assets are packed, clients need to know those assets will be transported securely and directly to PlanITROI’s facility. PlanITROI provides secure logistics options so clients can be assured of complete chain-of-custody management. For more details, click HERE.
PlanITROI see’s significant advantages to using vetted 3rd party logistics partners. Logistics partners have aggressively sought PlanITROI’s business, but to qualify as a partner they must meet the company’s stringent global and domestics services guidelines and requirements. Those few that do are specialists and they offer a healthy competition for best pricing without compromised service. These specialists’ ability to ensure security and chain-of-custody mandates is paramount and PlanITROI audits these partners accordingly. For more details, click HERE.
PlanITROI provides in-transit insurance, the level of which is directly tied to the value of the assets, and potential data on those assets, being shipped to PlanITROI. Coverage up to and beyond $10 Million can be applied.
Clients that are extending the life of their current equipment can find replacement IT components from PlanITROI. Assets from which PlanITROI harvests components can yield additional revenue to a client.
PlanITROI is a great resource for a supply of assets that may still be supported, but are no longer available in the channel. PlanITROI is our clients’ number one resource for Out-of-Manufacture or “Frozen” Technology. Out-of-Manufacture technology matches the technology and assets a client currently is using, and is configured to client specifications. Clients often request these assets in order to maintain standards, maintain utilization systems, replace non-functioning or lost units and reduce the cost of hardware purchases. PlanITROI can keep a number of these units in dedicated inventory and available as back-ups or for parts.
In the past, many clients’ retired assets would come to PlanITROI with expired warranties. However, as product quality has improved and financial situations have changed for enterprise clients, there is more of trend for clients to buy extended warranties. PlanITROI works with clients and their lists of assets under warranty to complete any repair or refurbishment work at no cost to the client. Detailed activity and disposition reports are provided to the client. PlanITROI will also look-up warranty status with the OEM and advise the client as to warranty coverage status. This service aids clients that either own or lease their IT assets.
The “Bolt-on Warranty"
PlanITROI provides several warranty options for its refurbished Certified Nused equipment. There is a No-Fault Warranty which covers everything, up to 3 years depot or on-site coverage. For assets still in use that are in a client’s portfolio, PlanITROI offers a”Bolt-on Warranty” for extended coverage. This is beneficial for extending warranty coverage on assets beyond their Manufacturer’s warranty. Click HERE to read more about the "Bolt-On Warranty".
