Asset Recovery

Increasingly organizations need to contend with data protection and environmental factors. Some need to certifiably destroy data on old devices, others want to be sure equipment is not going to landfill. Many want to maximize recoverable value to offset against future purchases.

It shouldn’t be a choice between any one of these priorities; maximizing financial returns and reducing environmental impact go hand-in-hand. Disposal doesn’t mean you can’t demand a traceable process to ensure data is destroyed and the equipment is efficiently re-purposed.

Lenovo’s Asset Recovery Services (ARS) enable secure destruction of data, minimum impact on the environment and a fair financial return to you. ARS is not just for Lenovo hardware but supports equipment from any manufacturer on a wide range of products, including PCs & tablets, monitors, servers, phones, printers, copiers and networking equipment.

Environmentally responsible: most services focus on recycling, instead we use repair facilities and an extensive re-marketing network to strive for the highest possible re-use of equipment. Where equipment cannot be re-used, it will be recycled following strict environmental standards.
