DENVILLE, NJ â€“ November 4, 2010 â€“ PlanITROI, a leader in IT asset value recovery, has been named in Gartnerâ€™s Magic Quadrant for North American Information Technology Asset Disposition.* This Magic Quadrant represents Gartnerâ€™s initial coverage of this industry segment. According to the report, â€œThe growing emphasis on the two primary risks associated with ITAD â€” data security and the proper disposition of e-waste â€” combined with more strict and comprehensive legislative mandates and penalties for non-compliance, is forcing IT asset managers to more closely evaluate their ITAD processes and providers. The small number of vendors named in the report must exhibit an ability to execute a thorough IT asset disposition program and a completeness of vision among other criteria. PlanITROIâ€™s focus on refurbishing and reselling retired IT equipment to optimize a customerâ€™s ROI, earned the veteran firm a place in the Challenger quadrant. Challengers according to the Gartnerâ€™s criterion â€œexhibit strong operational capabilities, have adequate service offerings and execute quite well overall. â€œSince 1991, PlanITROI has had a history of being an IT Asset Disposition industry pace-setter. Weâ€™re pleased to see our processes, business model and innovation recognized by a leading firm like Gartner,â€? said Paul Baum, CEO of PlanITROI. â€œThe lifecycle asset management programs we developed more than 15 years ago have become an industry model. We look at the Magic Quadrant report as a confirmation of our forward-looking approach and we look to the feedback within the report to make us an even stronger partner to our clients.â€?
