Significance of Asset Recovery Services in Business

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.

    Long time ago, where harddisks were more prone to errors, we used another trick to loosen a stuck head without openong the unit, and that was to carefully slam the side of the disk into a table. It worked fine most of the times, and you didn't have the risks involved with opening it.
    Another thing I learned, if you had to, was to open the disk in a bathroom, as there is usually less dust there. But the slamming approach worked fine then.
    This is only my own experience, and I cannot predict how it will work for you.

    companies should put a warning sticker on harddrives so every new user knows the risk and start making backup. I had a loss too when i was younger and i do backups since then.

    As I had such a problem I found a tool named 'recover my files' it worked perfect, was in chinese but only had two buttons and it was for free, but it was on Win98, very long time ago.

  • Shakir Shine May 8, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    Don't ever try this . The sticker on the top is sharper than a sword. It is blade kind material. I cut my finger by removing this sticker. Then the hard disc died permanently. This is the worst experiment i made after watching YouTube videos.. I lost my hard disc…

    what do i have to do if the head does't stuck on the platter???

  • NASACrooks May 8, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    The Greeks who learned the English in Greece need to realize one thing. In English you do not pronounce all the letters in a word. I know its stupid but this is the truth. In the beautiful Greek language the pronunciation contains all the letters and with the appropriate emphasis, tone, and color. Those rules do not apply in to English. The English is a barbaric language and often different populations which speak English can't even understand each other and this is why they speak with boring cliches all the time in hope they are understood.
