Significance of Asset Recovery Services in Business

May 4, 2018


A recent research shows that many companies tend to overlook the mammoth opportunity that lies behind effective management of idle IT assets. It is found that only forward-thinking entrepreneurs can actually extract revenues from the tools that are otherwise declared junk and are piled up in a warehouse. Innumerable profitable e-waste companies have cropped up in the recent past that offer state-of-art e-waste management solutions. Again, it is always advisable for businesses to appoint contractors with hands-on experience in dealing with end-of-life computers and telecommunication products.

A professional asset recovery contractor would always follow step by step procedures while handling end-of-life equipment. In general, eco-friendly disposal of IT tools and efficient implementation of asset recovery process include the following step –

  • Tracking and managing piled up assets
  • Differentiating between reusable and non-reusable of assets
  • Assessing the actual value before reselling them
  • Effective redeployment or reselling of the end-of-life stock
  • Systematic compilation of all these in an official report

Management of surplus equipment is considered an inevitable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) which adds to the goodwill of a company. Many entrepreneurs today opt for donating their usable surplus assets to charitable organizations. Thus, for maximum Return on Investments (ROI), many customised e-waste solutions are offered by experts on this subject. Locating resalable assets and IT property can turn extremely time-consuming. Thus, it is always a prudent move for small, medium and even large enterprises to appoint an external industrial recovery team for optimum utilization of their resources. The good thing is, many contractors also offer solutions purely on a commission basis. They charge their customers only when they have sold, donated or disposed of the product in an environment friendly manner.

Many recovery contractors themselves buy IT products which have not reached the end-of-life and are still usable. An increasing number of contractors are readily buying office IT tools including Core 2 or higher computers, laptops, flat panel monitors, new toner cartridges, network equipment and various telephone systems. IT equipment in good, operational conditions are generally disposed of when a company is shifting, moving or downsizing its office. However, it is on part of the entrepreneurs to properly evaluate their asset’s value before reselling or coming to an agreement. IT recycling professionals also offer free pickup of assets and assure secure removal of data while abiding by the DOD techniques. It is said that corporates should specifically focus on protecting sensitive information by keeping in mind the possibilities of infringing software licensing policies. Finally, an official asset recovery service is not declared finished until a certified audit report on data destruction and refurbishment is documented and signed upon by both the parties.

    Love your videos! I am praying that you have a video on replacing a capacitor on an Iphone. I have everything I need; iphone with a broken capacitor, working iphone, and literally all the tools thanks to my dad.

    Everything but the knowledge on how to replace it.

    Hi Jessa

    I have a iPhone 6 that had water damage, I had a short on VCC_Main and VCC_Batt
    I already found the bad (Caps) one on each rail, I replaced them with the same caps no more shorts
    but the phone still shows no sign of power, not even when connected to iTunes…. any suggestions ?

    I like how you explained the multiple strategies and how they relate to each other (like if the freeze spray method doesn't help then the alcohol method also wouldn't work for this case).

    Every bit of info is new to me here because so far I have recovered lost iPhone data via a software.

  • kara converse May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Hi Awesome Jessa. what should the diode reading be across the battery connector? (you mentioned it should be "high.")

  • Earl Teller May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    exactly what i was lookin for 👌

  • kara converse May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Are the board views included in ZXW Tool? Or is it a separate deal?

  • Stephan H May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    nice Video 😀
    Already learned a lot.

    I have a samsung s6 edge that has fallen into a bucket of water.
    I direct teared it down and the battery whas already dead.
    With the microscope i can only find 1 component that has blown up

    With a charger without battery i do get no reaction on the phone or is it's neccesary that a battery is in ?

  • Jon Jovi May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    I have an iPhone 6 that won't turn on and I tested the battery connectors for continuity and the negative side has it and the positive side doesn't. Theoretically doesn't that mean it should work? What should I try next? I have two boards with this same problem?

  • Lorenzo V May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    What do you call the tool with which to blow the motherboard?

  • Wine Consultant May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    I think I love you and the false hope installed in me to restore my old phone.

    do you know if it is possible to dis-solder the ssd and resolder it on another working logic board and have a result of "it to work to recover data" step?

    Either way good time spent watching, it is a very last resort 🙂


  • Jacob Henson May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    First of all, LOVE your videos. Learned so much. I honestly have no clue how anyone can complain or criticize. People are dumb. Anywho, is pumping massive amounts of current through the board something you'd say you have to do often, or are you usually able to find shorts using the freeze spray and/or visual check?

  • radwizard May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Nice candy bracelet 🙂 BTW I admire what you do and your set up.

  • diX May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    This method is used on regular basis on manufacturing sites , Low Impedance Tracking. Great job !

  • Laurence Osborne May 4, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Why don't you use a thermal imaging
    camera to find the short?

    Sorry if dumb question
