Legacy trade-in programs involve a lot of wheel-spinning. Used devices are purchased at retail locations, but only tested and graded at remote warehouses. Locked devices and deviations from reported conditions result in write-offs, reconciliations and unnecessary shipping. All of these costs are subtracted from the offer price for used devices, causing consumers to leave valuable devices in drawers, where they slowly depreciate to zero.
Cellbie Trade uses leading edge technology at the retail trade-in location to eliminate unnecessary shipping, write-offs and reconciliations. These technologies are made available as easy-to-follow workflows that complement the in-store environment and turn retail associates into wireless experts. Device recognition, lock-checks and diagnostics are all managed simply and objectively.
