Is your organisation in need of a simplified decommissioning service to take the burden off staff? WorkVentures provides a single point of contact to securely manage your disconnection, decommissioning and IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) of IT equipment from commercial space, including offices and data centres.
Decommissioning is the process of retiring or disconnecting IT equipment. It can involve replacing hardware with new units and disposing of obsolete equipment through safe and secure methods.
Our systems enable full traceability of asset collection, movement and secure deposal or destruction. We provide manifests of collections and processing.
Reports and certificates of secure data sanitation or destruction are also provided. When completing decommissioning, we also ensure that organisations are minimising their legacy technology footprint and responsibly e-waste to divert technology from landfill.
Our long history and years of experience assist us with consulting clients to ensure all requirements and needs are clearly identified. Our experience enables us to complete small collections through to scaling services for larger corporations or government agencies Australia-wide.

The Decommissioning Process
Our team assess your needs to understand what is required throughout the decommissioning process.
We provide asset and sustainability reporting that ensures organisations have an understanding of the outcome of the decommissioning process.
Equipment that can be reused is refurbished and given a second life.
Any equipment that is obsolete or beyond repair is ethically recycled, ensuring no e-waste is sent to landfill.
On-site and off-site data destruction is performed. We guarantee that all data is safely wiped and destroyed before reuse or recycling.
Our team conduct physical inventory and verify this against a client-provided master asset list. Full collection reporting, auditing, and device triage are executed.
All items are scanned and separated into device types, and unique batches are created.
