EOL IT Services Showcase our Key Achievements and Highlights in 2018

In 2018, EOL entered our 22nd year of trading – and what a year 2018 proved to be  – with many key achievements.

Established in 1996, EOL are immensely proud to be one of the longest standing and most respected ITAD’s in the industry and remain, the most accredited independent.

Throughout 2018 we continued with our commitment to data security, enhancing our compliance further by achieving CAS(S) certification (under the NCSC Assured Sanitisation Service) and also the highest level of accreditation that the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA) can offer – a Distinction with Honours.


How Strong is Your Chain of Custody?

It is estimated that data volumes double every two years, which means there’s an ever-increasing need to monitor its storage.  Understanding where and how your data is stored, even at its end of life, and documenting this in a chain of custody report is a vital step to ensuring compliance to data regulation and environmental legislation. However, a mental record of this data storage doesn’t suffice – you’ll need to have a written record of the whereabouts of this data to comply. Failure to produce a chain of custody when requested could see businesses paying a hefty price.  But why is a chain of custody important to IT asset disposal? EOL explains all.


The Effects of E-Waste and the ITAD Solution

According to the UN Environment Programme, up to 90% of the world’s electronic waste (worth nearly $12 billion) is illegally traded or dumped each year. In large part, this can be seen as a direct consequence of our changing business habits. Businesses are now more reliant than ever on technology for the day to day operations of the company. Technology has transformed the way we conduct business for the better, streamlining finance and administration, and rendering communication instant and seamless. The unforeseen consequence of our increased reliance on technology in business, however, is an exponential increase in the volume of e-waste being generated in the form of unwanted printers, fax, machines, laptops, phones and a myriad of other such devices.


How to Choose an ITAD Supplier | EOL IT Services

There’s an increasing pressure for organisations to stay on top of the latest IT trends and innovations which, in turn, means there’s an increasing turnover when it comes to IT equipment. Whether companies choose to recycle or resell old IT equipment, it is important that they do so in-line with industry standards. Partnering with an ITAD supplier is the first step to achieving this. It goes without saying that you should only ever partner with certified and accredited ITAD companies, but there are a few other things you must consider. Here at EOL we’ve put together some pointers to help you understand how to choose an ITAD supplier.
