Looking to upgrade your Tablet PC? Worried about what happens with that data on your hard drive? Motion Computing’s new Motion Assist program might be just what you’re looking for. Motion Assist is a trade-in program that might save you some money on your next Tablet PC.
The Motion trade-in program gives customers the option to apply the value of existing computer equipment toward a purchase of new Motion tablet PCs, while retaining resale value and disposing of older equipment. Myriad products are eligible for this program, including computers, network and telecom equipment, monitors, PDAs and digital cameras.
In order to help prevent customer identity theft or loss of confidential information, Motion’s trade-in program was built to support the disposal of pre-owned computers and sensitive hard drive data. The trade-in program standards adhere to industry and government regulations including HIPAA, Graham-Leach-Billey and the United States Department of Defense. Each trade-in program customer receives a certificate of data erasure for corporate or organizational auditing and reporting.
What’s intriguing about this is that it doesn’t appear to be limited to just trading a Motion for a Motion, although I could be wrong there. That would be a great move on Motion’s part if that is the case, and I’d love to see other OEM’s go that route as well. Of course the real quesiton is how much value you get on the trade-in. At the moment I can’t find any more detail on the Motion Assist program on the Motion site, but I’m sure it will be there soon. Here’s a link to the news info.
