How can you reduce complexity and increase return by implementing a truly global ITAD program?
Many companies focus on two core elements when taking IT assets out of service: data security and environmental compliance. Larger companies expand that list to include brand protection, regulatory compliance, tracking/reporting, and return on investment. But when it comes to multinational companies, two additional key factors become critical: reducing program complexity and ensuring consistency of service and reporting. Explore the range of program elements companies should consider when developing, expanding, or consolidating any IT Asset Disposition program…but particularly one that requires global coverage.
Some highlights from ITAD Going Global:
- Data security and e‑waste handling compliance for global companies is complex: according to the Harvard Business Review there are more than 550 laws in the U.S. alone that relate to IT asset disposition.
- If you’re a multinational company, you’ll also have to meet the regulations and laws in every country or region where you have offices or personnel and need to retire IT equipment.
- When you use multiple ITAD partners for a global program – with the inherent multiple contracts, reporting streams, and varying results – the investment of time and resource can quickly outweigh any perceived advantage of having local programs.
