SAN FRANCISCO—Access Communications has added RetroBox, a leader in used computer remarketing and disposal, to its roster of clients. The firm will promote RetroBox programs that help businesses retire, redeploy or remarket desktop computers, workstations, servers, networking equipment and associated peripherals in full compliance with environmental regulations.
“Dead men may tell no tales, but you’d be floored by what can be coaxed out of a supposedly erased hard drive—everything from confidential client data to old love letters and software applications,” said Stampp Corbin, president and CEO of RetroBox. “Working with Access Communications, we aim to educate businesses that they can shield their organizations from the risks associated with computer asset disposal through programs that ensure the safety of data, maximize their financial return from retired assets, and protect the environment by sending gear off to a new life rather than to a landfill.”
According to the Gartner Group, more than 100 million personal computers will be retired within the next three years. RetroBox estimates that a company with 5,000 computers can expect to lose one million dollars annually if assets are retired improperly.
