Let’s say you work as an IT manager for a large corporation—or maybe a government office or a school—that’s replacing nearly all its IT assets with newer and faster technology: new PC towers and monitors for every desk; new tablets and smartphones for every employee.
Without a doubt, that’s the sort of expenditure that doesn’t come cheap. But what if there was a way to recoup some of the costs involved with the large scale replacement of IT equipment?
As it happens, there is. And a process known as IT asset recovery is where it all begins.
It asset recovery is a complicated term for a relatively simple process. The bottom line is that most computing equipment replaced by organizations today still has significant market value. That’s why simply disposing of old IT hardware just doesn’t make sense.
And from a financial point of view, allowing it to gather dust in a storage closet is almost worse: If your company’s unused and outdated equipment needs to be stored at a specific temperature or humidity level to prevent deterioration, for instance, you’re essentially wasting money around the clock. Ouch.

Those of us here at CWI have been in the IT asset recovery business for nearly 20 years. We know from first-hand experience that selling used IT assets such as computers, tablets, printers, and scanners can do much more than create a surplus of storage space. It also turns the equipment your organization can’t use into the currency it desperately needs to pay for new hardware. Yes, it’s a cliché, but that’s what we call a win-win.
