Obsolete Equipment after a Hardware Upgrade
Upgrading Hardware Generates Obsolete Equipment
Updating your company’s software and computer equipment is an exciting project, one that will hopefully result in increased productivity and help your team reach their business goals. However, a computer hardware upgrade naturally renders legacy systems obsolete. Even upgrading the memory in your computer system creates excess IT equipment – and it all still holds valuable data. Legacy systems take up storage space and may no longer have resale value by the time you upgrade your computers.
You clearly need to make space by getting rid of your obsolete IT assets, but before parting ways with your old equipment, you need assurance that the stored data won’t end up in someone else’s hands. That’s where Liquid Technology comes in. We can guarantee secure data destruction and take the legacy IT equipment off your hands.
