Reuse, repair and recycle for the good of nature

Today we celebrate World Environment Day, the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. This year the theme is: It’s Time for Nature.

At Piceasoft we contribute towards a more sustainable future every day. Our core business model is based on the circular economy. Piceasoft provides omnichannel software solutions to repair, reuse, and recycle phones. With these solutions, we aim to extend the lifecycle of mobile devices.

One of the environmental issues is waste. Did you know that producing one new mobile phone generates 86 kg of waste?* In addition, the manufacturing and logistics processes generate CO2 emissions. One of the best ways to reduce mobile device related waste is to use the devices longer. By extending the life span of products, the need for new production, the amount of manufacturing waste and transportation can be reduced. This is at the core of what we do at Piceasoft.

Many of our business customers, such as mobile operators and retailers, are actively driving sustainability strategies and various environmental initiatives. By leveraging Piceasoft solutions our customers can build circular economy thinking into their own business plans.

Retailers can use Picea® Services to offer new services to consumers and make money out of used devices while extending the device lifecycle. Point-of-Sales or front-end care centers can diagnose issues with phones, avoid unnecessary returns and logistics to repair centers, and save costs. OnTheFly solutions can be deployed to serve consumers online and create even more sustainable digital user journeys.

Recyclers can refurbish and resell the old devices back to the second-hand phone market. When the phone reaches the end of the lifecycle, the phone can be analyzed and securely erased, and some components can be reused for example as spare parts.

For Piceasoft personnel, nature is an important part of daily life. Spending time in nature promotes well-being, physical and mental health and helps to recharge your internal batteries. When you spend time outdoors, you also learn to appreciate nature and want to protect the environment.

Finnish nature is diverse, so no wonder one of the most popular hobbies among our personnel are outdoor activities. You can find a Piceasoft employee running, hiking, fishing, orienteering, cycling, skiing, skating, canyoning, sailing, ice-swimming…. You name it!

To care for ourselves we must care for nature. To care for nature, we must extend the lifecycle of devices. To extend the lifecycle of mobile devices, you need to have the right solutions. Contact us at sales@piceasoft.com to discuss which solution is right for you.
