If you’ve been reading our blog for a while now you’ll have learned how AMI minimises the risk of harmful data leaks while also providing organisations with the highest return on their end of life IT assets. However, when it comes to disposing of old IT equipment you’re looking for more than to just get the job done; you want the experience to be a pleasant one too. In this blog, the final in our three-part series on what makes AMI different, we’ll outline how our customer-focused approach is central to providing you with the best service in the industry.
Easy to deal with
IT retirement is a complex process, there’s no doubt about it. From the logistics involved in arranging the initial collection of IT assets, to maintaining chain of custody and ensuring that the most secure processes are utilised to guarantee data protection; just thinking about having your old IT equipment collected can seem like a daunting prospect.
However, AMI has spent 15 years creating streamlined processes to make the IT retirement process really simple for customers, and as a result we’re really easy to deal with. We offer the most complete range of services, including secure IT device disposal, data destruction and erasure, media and hard drive destruction, resale for value return and even waste electrical (WEEE) disposal.
From the beginning of your engagement with AMI you’ll benefit from our responsive service. We answer every customer request during business hours within four hours. We provide nationwide collection and have processing facilities in both Dublin and Belfast. In 2015 alone we serviced 3,500 sites. What’s more, our DiskShred fleet provides secure shredding services throughout Europe.
Arrange a collection and let us do the rest
Once you arrange a collection you can relax and let us do the rest. The AMI Collection Crew are trained to be ultra-helpful and don’t require any assistance. We can even collect devices from multiple locations on the client site. For your peace of mind, all collections are carried out by directly employed AMI staff, our employees are 100% security cleared (BS7858) and trained in all relevant tech skills.
Once we transport your old IT equipment back to one of our secure processing facilities we use the world’s most sophisticated data erasure software, Blancco, to ensure that data bearing equipment is erased to the most stringent global standards. AMI can easily scale to customer needs; we can securely process 3,000 devices and wipe 187,500 GBs per day. Customers who would like to inspect our facilities are welcome to do so at any time, and we can host customer audit teams as well.
Detailed reports and environmentally-friendly disposal
We provide detailed reports to make it easy for our clients to manage their asset registers. The reports are 100% tamper-proof, providing a data destruction audit trail and certification that gives our customers proof of compliance and, therefore, peace of mind.
Last but not least, we have a zero-landfill policy. 100% of our disposals are handled in an environmentally responsible way, and anything that is not reusable is responsibly recycled in line with WEEE requirements.
So there you have it, IT retirement doesn’t have to be as complicated as you thought. Contact AMI today to find out how you can easily turn your old IT equipment into a brand new revenue stream for your organisation.
