Technology Asset Recovery

49% of enterprises lose a considerable number of corporate-issued assets during employee offboarding1.
Despite the inherent security, data privacy and financial risks, companies struggle with technology reclamation from departing employees due to:

Lack of accurate inventory controls to identify and track all devices issued to users

Lack of integrations with IT, security and business systems to manage asset retrieval

Lack of process automation to orchestrate offboarding processes for departing users

The Importance of Timely and Secure Technology Recovery

When employees, contractors and other personnel depart from an organization, they often possess company-issued equipment such as laptops, mobile devices, field devices and other peripherals that contain or have access to sensitive business data. Ensuring the prompt and secure return of these items is essential to prevent financial losses and potential data breaches.

  • Tracking technology assets via spreadsheets or in siloed systems leading to inconsistent inventory controls and gapsData security risks, legal and compliance violations, and unauthorized access by former employees when company issued assets are not recovered
  • Wasteful IT spend due to low endpoint recovery rates
  • Resource and cost overruns due to inefficient and error-prone manual processes for recovery

Asset Reclamation Challenges in Dynamic Technology Environments

Traditional IT Asset Management (ITAM) and CMDB-based ITSM solutions usually fall short in automating and streamlining asset recovery processes.

IT teams often resort to manually pulling information from multiple sources, aggregating it painstakingly via spreadsheets, and contacting users to reconcile duplicates and populate gaps in order to:

  • Identify, inventory and track all devices issued to users
  • Manage shipping logistics, labels and retrieval boxes
  • Send reminders and track returns from employees, especially those in remote or other geographical locations
  • Manage legal holds, secure wipes, reuse and disposal
