Product Destruction Can Save Your Business. Here’s How.
If your business already takes advantage of the paper shredding services offered by PROSHRED® Houston, you understand the importance of securely disposing of confidential information in order to protect your clients, employees, and your business’s reputation. You might also use our hard drive destruction services whenever your company is upgrading computers or needs to get rid of outdated technology. But you might not know that there are other services that can help you keep sensitive materials out of the wrong hands and add an extra layer of protection for your business.
Keeping your brand and employees protected from identity theft is a complicated process in this day and age, when information exists not only on paper but also on the internet. Your business probably has several safety measures in place to protect confidential information from being stolen in cyberspace, so the same should apply to your physical security. Old company items, like uniforms and ID cards, are prime materials for identity theft, and getting rid of them haphazardly could be a recipe for disaster; that’s why we offer product destruction services at PROSHRED® Houston.
Product Destruction: What is it?
Product destruction is very similar to paper shredding or hard drive destruction in that they all involve the proper, secure disposal of confidential company products and information that can’t just be thrown in the trash. Product destruction specifically applies to items that are associated with your company branding through the use of logos or other identifying factors.
Items that your company should consider for product destruction include, for example:
- Casino Chips
- Company Uniforms
- Branded Clothing and Shoes
- ID Cards and Security Badges
- Outdated Products
- Recalled Equipment
- Sporting Goods
- Playing Cards
- Promotional Materials
- Credit Cards and Gift Cards
- CDs, DVDs and Floppy Disks
- Other Products with Company Logos
Why Does Your Business Need Product Destruction?
As we mentioned above, simply throwing these types of items in the trash for disposal can put your company at risk. Possession of items such as uniforms or security badges in the hands of people outside your company gives them the power to damage your company’s reputation or wreak havoc within your business. It’s also just not a good look to allow people to have access to items that are branded with old logos or equipment that has been recalled due to defects.
Utilizing a product destruction service eliminates the need to worry about theft and potential fraud when it comes to these items. If you have any of these items or items that are no longer used day-to-day at your office or warehouse, product destruction is the best way to get rid of them.
