February 3, 2015 - Atlanta, GA - (Business Wire) - For the third time in a row, Apto Solutions is named as a visionary in the growing field of IT asset disposition (ITAD), according to Gartner’s updated ITAD Magic Quadrant for providers with global capabilities. This comes at a unique time for enterprise companies that rely heavily on technology.
Apto Solutions’ clients include the largest internet companies and financial institutions in the world. These companies are experiencing rapid hardware refresh cycles because today’s technology is smaller, faster and uses less energy. As businesses with large data centers work to keep up with the changes in digital, cloud, and mobile technology, they juggle a flood of sensitive data as well as physical hardware – nicknamed “e-waste.” E-waste comprises 70% of the toxic waste in U.S. landfills. According to Gartner, e-waste will have an enormous impact on global ITAD in the coming years.
Apto Solutions included in Leading Industry Analyst Firm's 2013 Global Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition.
Gartner states: “This Magic Quadrant examines ITAD providers with Global service capabilities that Gartner believes have the approximate size, capabilities, certifications, and delivered track record to justify consideration for our clients’ shortlists (assuming they meet the clients’ individual requirements).”
Over the past 12 months, millions of dollars have been poured into companies providing electronic waste (e-waste) recycling or marketing services, both for consumers and for businesses.
