Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
Redemtech, a world leader in IT asset disposition (ITAD) and Technology Change Management (TCM), today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the North America Information Technology Asset Disposition 2010 Magic Quadrant.* This Magic Quadrant represents Gartner’s initial coverage of the ITAD industry.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Information Technology Asset Disposition is based on an assessment of a company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute. Gartner noted that companies in the Leaders quadrant “execute well against their current robust vision, and are well positioned for the future. The vendors in the Leaders quadrant register the highest scores on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. These vendors have wider geographic coverage, both within North America and globally. Significant weight is placed on geographic coverage through direct, owned and operated facilities (vs. indirect coverage through partners), with special emphasis on North America. While this Magic Quadrant specifically evaluates the North American ITAD marketplace, our research indicates that many North America-based multinational enterprises place significant value on a robust international ITAD presence. Vendors in the Leaders quadrant are also characterized by comprehensive sales organizations, financial stability, a clear and consistent commitment to the ITAD market, comprehensive customer support, broader service portfolios, and larger market presence.”
The full Gartner Magic Quadrant for Information Technology Asset Disposition report is available at no charge on Redemtech’s website, along with other resources that help companies learn about best practices in the ITAD industry. The site features white papers, blog posts by industry experts, regulatory databases and Redemtech’s free Sustainable Computing Assessment, which helps companies see how their ITAD programs compare to industry best practices in key areas such as productivity, reuse, accountability, energy and environmental social responsibility, among others. The self assessment can be completed in about 15 minutes.
According to Gartner, “As ever greater volumes of IT equipment enter their final lifecycle stage, IT asset managers are more closely evaluating their ITAD processes and providers to address two primary risk areas – data security and proper disposition of e-waste – as well as more comprehensive legislative mandates and stricter penalties for non-compliance. Companies we have identified as Leaders in the ITAD market execute well against their current robust vision and are well positioned for the future.”
We believe the positioning in the Leader quadrant reflects the company’s long-term commitment to industry leadership, said Redemtech President Robert Houghton.
“At Redemtech, we believe leadership requires delivering a level of service that goes beyond the requirements of the typical RFP – as a leader we work to improve our customers’ businesses,” said Houghton. “We consider it a testament to our ability to understand our customer’s business problems, provide solutions that set new industry standards for security, efficiency and sustainability, and make our customers more competitive in their own field.”
