Failing to properly retire corporate PCs can cost businesses on several fronts:

  • Companies may have to pay regulatory fines for toxically contaminating air and groundwater by shredding, burning, or sending PCs to landfills.
  • Failure to wipe sensitive data off of retired computer.
  • Companies pay a price when retired equipment is forgotten on closet shelves or in warehouses. These warehouses could be rented out by the enterprise and often accounting departments are unaware of the assets' whereabouts, therefore unnecessarily increasing the companies' tax burden.

To avoid incurring such costs, PC retirement needs to be incorporated into PC lifecycle planning.
