Getting new computers, tablets and phones is exciting. Like a kid getting his favourite toy and can’t wait to get home and play with it. You’ll discover the new bells and whistles that will make your job easier and more efficient…
But what happens to the old electronic assets?
If they have been placed into storage, either in someones cabinet or in the corner of an office, you are effectively costing the company money with no more ROI.
Here are the 4 reasons why:
- For the first 3 years, your electronic assets have some re market value, but remember that each month that passes, it depreciates even more.
- By allowing the devices to depreciate past 3 years, starts costing the company storage space. You are giving up space for old redundant electronics instead of things that are improving costs.
- All of those devices have important data on. Keeping it opens the door to people getting access to the data.
- A lot could happen to the storage area: flood, fire, theft, accident. These will effectively minimize the resell value should something happen whilst in storage.
