Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding Digital IT Cloud solutions, physical storage solutions and donations of computers and office equipment.
How Do I Start Collecting items needing storage, donating, re-homing ?
You would be surprised by how many different departments in a company have surplus IT computer equipment such as laptops, routers, servers, switches, office furnitures, document, cabinets etc needing storage. Always begin by calling and engaging with coordinators from every single department. Many times items become a liability simply because no one reached out. Also be sure to check if there are any items in storage where you are paying higher costs of business storage.
What Kind(s) of Services Do I Require?
Be sure to identify what collection process is required for your items whether items need cloud storage for documents, physical business storage, recycling, re-use, refurbishment, donation, furniture storage, re-location or re-sale before the final items are transported. Many times information removal from computers can take weeks. Plan accordingly for coordinating the collection process to manage costs and requirements.
Do I Need To Wipe The Computers Clean?
It is not necessary as we can arrange both on-site and off-site data removal, though most participating companies choose to do so themselves. Many times the IT departments are capable of this. Bear in mind this process may take weeks, so plan accordingly.
Do I Need To Track The Equipment And Record It?
This depends on your internal company policy of re-use, recycling, donating and selling old IT computer hardware. Tracking and reporting is available for an additional fee.
