Leading IT research firm Gartner has released its official market guide for IT Asset Disposition companies (ITAD) and profiled CentricsIT as a representative vendor.

Gartner releases report titled, “Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition,” authored by analysts Rob Schafer and Christopher Dixon. The report was published on July 26, 2018. You must be a Gartner subscriber to access the full document (Gartner ID: G00355990).

CentricsIT has been helping its clients make smarter decisions about their IT delivery for more than a decade. We are well known in the industry for our innovative approach to IT lifecycle management, which prioritizes asset value alongside security and environmental sustainability. When it comes to IT Asset Disposition (ITAD), our goal has always been to help our clients recoup the value of their retired assets whenever possible—with a focus on data security and compliance.

The process of properly retiring IT assets, especially with value recovery in mind, can easily seem like a low priority compared to other mission-critical IT projects. It can also be a highly time-consuming endeavor when approached without the proper background and experience. For these reasons and others, we often meet clients who have kept retired assets stored in closets or warehouses—or worse—still plugged in and consuming power while remaining underutilized.

Many IT leaders turn to IT Asset Disposition companies like CentricsIT to handle their ITAD initiatives from start to finish—through either a project-based engagement or a recurring ITAD program.
