Proven Track Record.

We have a proven track record in the marketplace for implementing and significantly improving the performance of Information Technology Asset Management (ITAM) programs for both hardware and software assets.  We work with the client to develop an organizational core competency in ITAM that maximizes the ROI from the IT investment and mitigates the underlying risk while providing a significant competitive advantage.

World Leaders.

Our ITAM personnel are recognized world leaders in ITAM with a long and deep passion for achieving concrete results from ITAM programs. We have ITAM expertise across all the IT platforms and have designed and implemented world-class ITAM programs that manage these IT assets through their entire life cycle from initial request through installation, redeployment and maintenance to final disposition.

The following are representative of the ITAM Services we offer:

Executive Briefing

High level overview of ITAM for executives emphasizing the significant financial and risk mitigation benefits for the organization.  Executives gain a deeper understanding of the complexities of ITAM and how to maximize its benefits.

Software Compliance

Development of a proactive software license compliance program that makes being compliant the natural state for the organization. This keeps the organization from being a target for compliance agencies, reduces the manpower cost of replying to audits and reduces the risk of penalties and fines.

Software Harvesting

Development of a methodology for harvesting and redeploying software that results in significant purchase avoidance and financial savings.  This also includes examining end user software usage and replacing higher cost products with lower cost products and reclaiming underutilized software.

ITAM Assessment

Examination of existing  ITAM program beginning with the organization’s overall risk and opportunities for financial gain. People, process and technology are examined across all the ITAM key process areas. A specific roadmap with corresponding metrics and policies is developed.

Tool Optimization

Assessing the effectiveness and integration of all the tools managing the IT assets and producing an improvement plan to maximize the ROI from current tools.

BYOD Strategy

Development of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy that ensures that the organization receives the financial benefit of BYOD while avoiding its unique risks.

XaaS Strategy

Development of a long-term governance structure to maximize the value of SaaS, IaaS, etc. while reducing the underlying risk and avoiding over spending on subscriptions.

Think you need to write it off or “ride it out?” Think differently.

IT assets are just that – assets. Fully depreciated or leased! Even written down to zero on your books, many still have market value. We will maximize the value you receive by leveraging our global sales channels. Our proven process maximizes the value we recover which includes the refurbishment and repair of all assets that have significant use life.

Proper Disposal.

Our ITAD program assures compliance with all local, state, and federal environmental regulations, and provides the evidence that you have diverted every possible bit of material from landfills back into the supply chain. Beyond compliance, we assist you to reach your environmental stewardship.

Data Security.

Our ITAD program will ensure that corporate security, compliance, and risk management policies and procedures are met. It will minimize the risk of any data breach and create auditable records for compliance and peace of mind. A solid ITAD process is a secure process, with proof.

Silver Tree offers Comprehensive Reporting:

Our ITAD program provides comprehensive reporting on all major activities to not only ensure compliance with complex governmental regulations but ensure full traceability and transparency on all of the assets we manage on your behalf.

 Audit & Report

Each asset received into our facility network undergoes a value-based audit based upon it’s type, age, and condition, whereby we destroy data through eradication of valued HDDs and shred the balance of HDDs. Each asset is tested and we capture the serial number, model, configuration and condition of each asset.

Certificate of Data Destruction

All storage media assets are eradicated or physically destroyed and we provide a ‘Certificate of Data Destruction’ depicting the serial number, model, destruction method, technician name and destruction date

Certificate of Recycling

When older equipment reaches a state where it no longer has any useful life in part or whole form, it must be recycled responsibly, and we ensure that it is done so in strict compliance with our “zero landfill/zero export” policy. We provide a ‘Certificate of Recycling’ depicting serial number, model, weight and recycle date
