What is IT Asset Disposal?
IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) works to process used IT equipment and you can safely delete data via the succinct plan. Our ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that the entire process, from transport to processing, is secure making the risk of reputation damage expunged and data integrity preserved. Especially since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG), it is essential to have assets organised.
Being responsible for the company’s computer park may involve receiving regular enquirers concerning laws and regulations, fines, the value of the computers and, the impact of disposing IT equipment on the environment. Suffice to say you must be capable of appropriately addressing any potential concerns.
When to follow the IT Asset Disposal plan?
An ITAD plan is crucial for both personnel responsible for ITAD programs and for IT professionals involved in equipment management. Benefits can also be drawn from an effective ITAD plan when being involved in IT equipment budgeting, finance, software licensing, contract management or strategic planning.
Additionally, for companies that professionally undertake data destruction and IT management an IT Asset Disposal plan has ceased to fall under business overhead, proving it’s value in profit and risk reduction.

IT Asset Disposal in 6 steps
Inventory of ITAD hardware
Firstly, we examine which processes have been followed from the IT equipment’s time of purchase to its destruction, enabling us to create an inventory for the situation.
We safely transport the used IT equipment to the data center and ensure responsible disposal.
If the IT equipment has maintained a good condition it will undergo refurbishment. ARGO360 has a worldwide network of buyers for refurbished IT equipment. Products beyond refurbishment will be disassembled, after which the individual parts will be reused.
The hardware destruction or recycling is securely documented and certified.
Sale & Residual Value
Lastly, you’ll receive the value of the IT equipment and be assured that we guarantee the maximisation of the residual value of the IT hardware.
