WEST CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - January 16, 2014) - Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, is proud to be recognized as a leader in the ITAD industry by Gartner, Inc., the world's leading IT research and advisory company, in its December 2013 Magic Quadrant for Worldwide IT Asset Disposition.
Due to the market demand for global ITAD services, the scope of the Magic Quadrant replaced the North American perspective with one encompassing the global ITAD market. Regionally, there are several companies offering ITAD services, but for the global Magic Quadrant, 11 international vendors were assessed using high-inclusion criteria relating to services delivered, geographies covered and quality of execution.
"With the expanded geographical scope of this assessment, we consider our position in the 'Leaders' quadrant by Gartner as confirmation of our ability to provide quality, consistent services across the globe," stated Steve Skurnac, president of Sims Recycling Solutions. "We will continue to implement best practices from around the world to solve our customers' needs and help them recover the maximum value for their IT and electronic equipment."
According to the Gartner report, "leaders execute well against a robust vision, and are well-positioned for the future." For organizations seeking ITAD services, a vendor's ability to execute and understanding of the market can be crucial to their success. The comprehensive research included in the 2013 Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide report provides important insight to help IT executives get a head-start on their ITAD vendor selection.
