Best Practices for Global Organisations to Extend the Life of Tech Equipment
Global organisations stand to benefit, as does the environment, from the optimal use of corporate assets and devices to prolong their lifecycle.
All tech equipment within an organisation goes through the cycle of procurement, use, and eventual disposal. Quite often, the lifespan of IT assets and tech equipment is far shorter than desired, leading to unnecessary e-waste and excessive expenditures. Therefore, it is to the benefit of organisations and to the environment to strive for extending and prolonging the use of tech equipment as long as feasibly possible.
Combine this with the massive shift towards remote and hybrid working arrangements brought about by the global pandemic, where it can be logistically challenging for staff members to return or retire old tech equipment. When employees are separated from traditional in-office IT departments, sometimes across cities or even working internationally, the need for efficient IT asset management and disposal becomes evident.
