Successful companies of this scale naturally seek continuous improvement in their processes. The company understood that it was most effective when pursuing perfection in all aspects of its business, including fields disparate from its core business functions. Early in 2015, CentricsIT began corresponding with this company regarding its IT asset disposal (ITAD).
The steel conglomerate came to a frank realization. “We are looking at options for our asset disposal program, as we have a wide variety of assets from desktops and laptops, to servers, switches, routers, and printers. Currently, we do not get what we believe is value from these recycled assets.”
In addition, the process by which the steel producer managed its leased equipment led to several instances of mistaken disposal—employees would occasionally discard items that needed to be returned to the OEM at the completion of a lease agreement. Finally, these processes were not coordinated throughout the enterprise, with different regions in the United States adopting unique practices for ITAD.
