Maxitech has been a great partner to work with, always supporting our own business activities with professionalism and integrity.
Cardiff, Wales (PRWEB UK) 13 August 2013
It’s vital that businesses and organisations protect their clients, employees and the public by securely destroying data held on IT equipment, when it’s disposed of at the end of its life.
Simply pressing “delete” or emptying the “Recycling Bin” doesn’t fully delete that data. Clearance Solutions were approached by Maxitech to provide a mutually beneficial service to their clients, ensuring compliance with the Data Protection Act and also the WEEE Directive which covers safe disposal of electronic equipment.
Nick Anderson of Clearance Solutions has been impressed with the service provided by PHS Maxitech. “When approached by Maxitech, we soon realised that we were missing an opportunity to provide an IT recycling service to our clients. We already deal with a wide range of materials from customer sites when undertaking a clearance, but hadn’t any experience with electronic or IT equipment.
Nick continues, “Aware of the minefield of legislation involved with Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) and the Data Protection Act, we found that we needed Maxitech’s expertise and experience to be able to offer this to our clients.”
Clearance Solutions liaise with Maxitech when a requirement arises, detailing the equipment that is for disposal. Data destruction and IT recycling experts at Maxitech then prepare a bespoke solution for that client.
This relationship has developed significantly since its inception. Clearance Solutions’ clients comply with data protection and environmental legislation in a simple and effective way. Also, Clearance Solutions are able to add another service to their portfolio, helping them to win office clearance jobs and presenting a “one stop shop”.
Nick added, “We’ve been very pleased with the service Maxitech provides our clients. They always receive a Destruction Certificate, as proof that their data has been completely wiped from the equipment. Maxitech has been a great partner to work with, always supporting our own business activities with professionalism and integrity.”
Svetlozar Kanev, General Manager at PHS Maxitech commented, “Working with Clearance Solutions has proven to be a very rewarding partnership. Their business goals are in sync with Maxitech’s, and we hope the relationship continues to develop.”
