Asset Management / Asset Recovery

UNISTAR manages your businesses’ assets end to end, from installation to retirement and beyond. When UNISTAR enters into an asset management agreement the primary step is to inventory all current assets. Based on the requirements of the client, UNISTAR will make an internal and/or external inventory of these assets. After the inventory is complete, a decision will be made regarding consolidation, upgrade, renewal, or disposal of individual assets. All removed assets are assessed based on remaining life and either retired from service or entered into an inventory pool where the individual assets can be redeployed at the request of the client. All retired equipment can be processed through a variety of different channels; to include employee purchase programs and revenue sharing strategies. All disposed equipment is ensured to have all data sanitized and destroyed according to Department of Defense (DoD) standards and all equipment is disposed of according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines.
UNISTAR can help your business focus on staying competitive in the marketplace and not worry about the logistics associated with managing an aging infrastructure. With the benefits of having a proprietary asset inventory system, standardized configuration management, DoD data security practices and strict EPA disposal standards, you can relax and be confident that everything will be handled with your best interest in mind.
