Apto follows a strict ISO 9001-controlled process to ensure quality and chain-of-custody of client assets.

ISO 9001 chain-of-custody
  1. Assets scanned at client site location (Optional)
  2. Assets securely shipped to processing facilities
  3. Receipt report created - compared to client-site scanned list or client provided list
  4. Any discrepancies are investigated and reported immediately
  5. Assets individually bar coded with details: Man, P/N, S/N, Condition, Components, etc
  1. As assets are processed and move throughout facility, locations and status changes in inventory system
  2. Redeployed assets are invoiced and tracked back to client
  3. Sold assets are invoiced and tracked to resale customer
  4. Recycled assets are invoiced and material tracked to downstream partners

Apto helps you assess risk and customize a process flow to meet any level of data sensitivity or client preference.

Not all IT assets require the same level of security in the chain-of-custody process flow. Where should data sanitization of IT assets occur? What is the right level of security in transport? Apto helps you assess the data risks, and delivers a secure, customized, cost-effective chain of custody process flow.
