West Chicago, Ill – Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS), a global leader in data center hardware circularity, IT asset disposition (ITAD), and electronics recycling, today announced its inclusion for the third time in the latest “Market Guide for ITAD” report*. Published by Gartner, a prominent IT research and advisory company, the Market Guide is designed to help IT leaders identify the right ITAD processes and vendors for their requirements.

Representative Vendors listed are all identified to provide readers with an overview of the market and its offerings. Included in the Market Guide is a presentation of key findings and recommendations regarding risks to avoid, areas of focus, and insights on future industry challenges and concerns.

The Market Guide includes market recommendations for contracting global ITAD services. One recommendation is choosing a global, sole-source supplier. SLS is one of two ITAD providers with the ability to deliver this service. According to Gartner, an advantage of working with a single vendor includes the ability to receive services “from large global players like Ingram Micro and Sims Lifecycle Services, who deliver much of their ITAD processing services through facilities that they own and operate.”

“I continue to see an accurate representation of the industry, reflecting the quality of the research done; and we believe being named by Gartner as a Representative Vendor reinforces our solution’s value to our global clients,” stated Sean Magann, chief commercial officer at SLS. “In our opinion, Gartner continues to be an indispensable tool to help IT executives make informed decisions regarding their data center hardware lifecycle and ITAD programs.”
