How Tech Dump Makes Life Easier and Drives Business for Managed Service Providers

managed service providers

As managed service providers, your plate is full. You’re supplying new hardware, installing and upgrading software, moving your customers over to cloud services and managing their security and credentials, among other things. Adding one more offering to your list can seem daunting. But what if we told you that adding Tech Dump’s IT asset disposition services could boost your business while at the same time actually alleviating some of your stress?

Sounds too good to be true, right?

The ITAD market is forecasted to reach 27 billion by 2025. The increasing demand for new electronic assets like laptops, mobile devices and office equipment means an increasing number of electronics will reach the end of their useful life in the coming years. Not only will the demand for electronics recycling services continue to increase but so will the demand for more affordable, refurbished equipment that helps offset the cost of purchasing new assets.

There couldn’t be a better time for managed service providers to begin offering Tech Dump’s ITAD services to your clients. 

Start by asking yourself the following questions:

Do you want to stand out from industry competitors?

managed service providersProviding an ITAD component to your list of services positions you head and shoulders above most other MSPs. It puts you on the cutting edge and shows prospects you’re anticipating their needs in an ever-changing IT environment. The best part? Your customers can work directly with us, creating no additional work for you. And because we take nearly every gadget with a cable or cord, your customers will think that you’re the best!

When you supply them with access to our ITAD services, it reinforces your expertise and is one more way you can create a trusted relationship with each one of your customers. It shows them you care about protecting their sensitive data both on their current devices and on their end-of-life assets—a service that many MSPs overlook altogether.

Do you want to show your prospects and customers that you value environmental stewardship?

Not only does providing ITAD services help you best protect your customers’ data but it also helps them lessen their environmental impact.

Get your prospects’ attention by educating them about the importance of electronics refurbishment and recycling. Tell them what kinds of toxins electronics contain that must be properly disposed of and which precious metals they contain that can be harvested and reused. Share statistics about the impact the ITAD industry has every year on reducing e-waste and keeping the environment clean.

Remind your current customers that they’re keeping toxic chemicals and recoverable metals out of landfills while also helping to give old electronics a new life and supplying components for future electronics. Tell them that, when they work with you (thanks to your partnership with Tech Dump!), they’re putting electronics into the hands of people who may not otherwise be able to afford them while also reducing manufacturing costs and environmental damage.

Also, more companies with environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments are learning how they can align their environmental practices with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. As managed service providers, offering Tech Dump’s ITAD services to your list of services provides a competitive edge not only for you but also for your environmentally responsible customers.

Do you want help covering compliance requirements?

Many MSPs say they have an ITAD process but are unaware of the chain of custody and compliance requirements. This knowledge gap creates a huge liability both for them and for their customers!

The good news is, you don’t have to become an expert in these areas to provide secure and effective ITAD services because we’ve got you covered.

When you work with us, you can help your customers take advantage of our services while continuing to focus on your core responsibilities. Everyone wins!

Do you want help protecting your customers’ brands and your own reputation?

If T’s are not crossed and I’s are not dotted, your customers’ sensitive information is vulnerable to data breaches that could ruin their reputations (and yours!) and land their companies belly up—A PR nightmare.

As an MSP, you have the enormous responsibility of protecting each of your customer’s data. This means protecting their hardware and software while electronic assets are in use…and after they’re decommissioned. For example, if you end up with customers’ IT assets in your facility and they have hard drives that haven’t been wiped, you have a potential security risk on your hands. Give us a call to schedule a pickup or request our mobile hard drive shredding service. We can even provide you with a Certificate of Destruction on each device at your request.

Once again, you don’t have to become an ITAD expert. Relying on our services will give you and your customers peace of mind that their data and everyone’s reputations are secure.

Do you want to help customers whose employees are working remotely?

Because more than 1 in 4 Americans are currently working remotely, offering the best industry solutions for remote workers and remote teams makes your services even more attractive and valuable.

IT RecyclingOne of the biggest challenges when it comes to managing remote teams is keeping track of widely dispersed electronic assets—who has what, what needs updating, what needs repair or replacement, etc. By the time electronic assets reach the end of their useful lives, properly recycling them may be an afterthought.

When you partner with Tech Dump for ITAD services, you can assure your clients with remote teams that their end-of-life electronics will be securely, ethically and responsibly managed.

If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, we’d love to speak with you! Give us a call at 763.432.3117.
