In an ideal world any IT data holding asset should be documented and assigned an owner on the company’s asset register. When it is decommissioned, the register should be changed to reflect this, and then once it has been disposed of, changed once again whilst tracking the IT asset through its entire lifecycle with the company. IT asset tracking is a critical part of a good information governance process essential for GDPR compliance.
In the real world, this is not always the case, and the client requires to know exactly what is being disposed of on the day of each collection.
ICEX can provide a mobile assets tracking service and carry out an audit of all IT hardware in use onsite, or just of that currently earmarked for disposal including make, model, serial number, asset number, location and specification.
After this point, the final inventory report can then be reconciled against the original list to backup what was processed and these items taken off the asset register. In many cases, this is a cost which can be paid for by part of the residual value in the equipment being processed.
