After “cutting his teeth” at Duquesne Systems, an early technology star in Pittsburgh, Larry founded and was CEO of Janus Technologies, Inc. where he led the development and marketing of Argis which was one of the first ITAM ownership repositories.  He established excellent relationships with industry analysts which to led to Argis consistently being in the Gartner leadership quadrant.

Larry’s executive experience and ITAM knowledge make him uniquely qualified to explain to executives the challenges and benefits of implementing ITAM.


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.

We welcome the opportunity to explore how we can help you.
