Triage at the Edge

“Triage your hardware for disposal, repair, sparing or redeploy at the decommission site instead of shipping off to a location, only to be shipped again for additional processing. Minimising your hardware shipments can severely reduce your logistics costs, further increasing the return on your investment.”

We organise decommissioning of servers and hardware according to the type and quantity of equipment you have. Our technicians respect the integrity of your data and privacy of your employees, customers, suppliers and partners. Before arriving for decommissioning and disposal, we’ll plan every detail of our intervention to minimize our intrusion on your site and provide the quality service you expect from an expert like XTEL.

In all cases, we make sure your data is safely transferred from your servers and other storage hardware before proceeding with decommissioning. We see proper IT hardware decommissioning as an important service for your business and treat your data and equipment with the respect it requires.

Triage at the Edge

Time is money. An old saying that is just as true today as it was in the past and in IT, it is gospel. Decommissioned IT assets can retain recoupable value but not forever. The speed at which a decision is made for an asset’s next useful life is critical as depreciation and market changes can happen in a flash in IT. A decommissioned asset has one of three destinies:

  1. Redeployment, or stated another way, putting the asset into use in another area of your infrastructure
  2. Resale or monetising the value left in the asset via the sale of the asset; generally in the form of a straight sale, revenue share relationship, or a combination thereof
  3. Disposal or more commonly referred to as recycling of the asset when there is no longer any marketable value

XTEL employs a process coined “Triage at the Edge”. Simply put, we set up processes that define the next use of your decommissioned assets so that they do not sit around depreciating or taking up space. The rules of next use are set in advance. They are then updated on an ongoing basis as future use or market value changes. The result is that your IT assets get to their next intended use as quickly as possible. You retain maximum economic utility of the asset and experience minimal costs associated with processing and/or freight.

Once our simplified solution is employed providing visibility in one location via XTEL’s Partner Activity Coordination Tool – “PACT™”, engineers and technicians no longer have to think about what to do with decommissioned assets., costs are avoided and money is saved.
