Many consumers are nowadays aware of the environmental impact of goods and services they purchase. But one side of consumption that many do not know is that there is a lot of waste in the production of various products. Did you know that producing a mobile phone can produce 86 kg of waste?*
With European Waste Reduction Week taking place on 16-24 November, now is a good time to think about ways to participate in the initiative and extend the life of mobile phones by reselling, repairing and recycling old mobile devices.
By extending the life span of products, the need for new production and amount of waste produced during manufacturing can be reduced. This is at the core of what we do at Piceasoft. We contribute to waste reduction by enabling sales of used mobile phones and providing software tools for phone reuse, recycling and care return avoidance. In short, we extend the lifecycle of mobile phones.
Piceasoft provides omni-channel software solutions for its customers to benefit from building circular economy thinking into their own business plans. Retail companies can use PiceaServices to offer new services to consumers and make money out of old devices. Point-of-Sales or front-end care centers can diagnose issues with phones and avoid unnecessary returns to repair centers saving logistic costs. OnTheFly solutions can be utilized to serve consumers online and create even more sustainable digital user journeys.
The old phone can be exchanged to a new one, recycled. Recyclers and Trade-in vendors can reuse and resell the old devices back to the second-hand phone market. When the phone reaches the end of lifecycle, phone can be analysed and securely erased, and some components can be reused for example as spare parts.
