Nationwide end-of-life asset contract win

Excel has secured the contract to carry out a major decommissioning, recycling and data destruction programme for a leading insurance company.

The work involves planning, out-of-hours decommissioning, collection and recycling on 40,000 IT assets at 38 sites across the UK.

All on-site work will be carried out at weekends and co-ordinated in conjunction with specific departmental, desktop application and regional geographic program requirements which will result in several  sites across the UK being targeted on any given weekend rather than all the assets on any one site.

Excel director Gavin Burger said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the service contract to manage what is a complex and sophisticated end-of-life programme across the whole of the UK for one of the leading names in the insurance sector.

“End-of-life services are an important component in our managed services portfolio, supporting clients as they seek to renew and optimise their IT infrastructure.”

Excel offers a full end-of-life asset service as part of its comprehensive approach to asset lifecycle management.

From the disposal, recycling and / or resale of hardware through to the on-site destruction of data and media, we help our clients achieve end-of-life outcomes efficiently, securely, reliably and within a framework of legal and best-practice compliance.

All hardware is disposed of and recycled according to current legislation and (where applicable) the WEEE directive, with disposal processes agreed with clients on an individual basis.

We use a range of secure certified on-site destruction services, including degaussing, software wiping and physical destruction of all media types.  Cutting edge technologies utilise CESG-approved equipment which is truly portable, meaning physical destruction can be undertaken in the office environment.
