Project Description

SUCCESS STORY:
CentricsIT helps a multi-billion dollar mass media entertainment company remove and decommission assets while ensuring maximum ROI.

BUSINESS CHALLENGES

This mass media entertainment company had only 2 months to shut down and re-haul its IT operations in Columbus, OH. There were approximately 1250 machines in the datacenter that needed to be un-racked, audited, palletized, and transported to a facility for staging, testing, data destruction, resale, and/or recycling. The strict time frame to perform these tasks required a great deal of manpower and dedication. There was a significant amount of value within the datacenter that the company was looking to recoup, but finding a reliable source to perform services while providing ROI on these assets was a challenge.

SOLUTION REQUIREMENTS

In addition to removal of equipment from the site, the company wanted a solution that would provide a substantial ROI for them. CentricsIT had to commit before end of the year to ensure no equipment would remain onsite; otherwise there would have been a significant charge for remaining past term. The company also had to find a solution that would house all of the equipment in a secure facility for the interim phase before the material was decommissioned, destroyed, or recycled.

In addition, because CentricsIT has its own revenue sharing plan, the client was able to roll these costs into its proceeds so there was nothing that needed to be paid up front during the decommissioning process.
