The new partnership allows customers to save money and keeps end-of-lifecycle smartphones and tablets out of landfills.
ROCHESTER, NY | December 28, 2022 – Calero, the innovation leader in the high-growth Technology Expense Management (TEM) software space, and Mobile reCell, the go-to software solution for corporate-owned mobile device recovery, today announced a partnership providing Calero customers simplified, software-driven, and sustainable corporate-owned mobile device recovery, reuse, resale, and recycling.
Mobile reCell’s software automates the recovery process for both centralized and dispersed mobile devices—such as smartphones and tablets—while delivering a solution focused on the circular economy and corporate sustainability initiatives.
More than 95 percent of S&P 500 companies published a sustainability report in 2021. Calero and Mobile reCell customers can access customized environmental impact reports detailing how an organization’s mobile device lifecycle program is affecting the planet and creating a sustainable solution by reusing, reselling, and recycling mobile devices while saving e-waste materials from landfills. The customized environmental impact reports demonstrate device recovery programs’ influence on corporate sustainability or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives to company leadership, key stakeholders, and environmental agencies.
“Historically, you had to choose between saving money or doing what’s best for the environment,” says Scott Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer at Calero. “With the Calero and Mobile reCell partnership, you can have the best of both worlds without compromise.”
With Mobile reCell’s software platform, Calero mobility customers gain visibility through the entire device recovery process, including the initiation of device recovery requests, device shipment tracking, diagnostic functionality testing, cosmetic condition grading, certified data erasure, and sustainable device disposition—the asset being reused, resold, or recycled in accordance with customer policies.
“With highly dispersed workforces, companies are finding it increasingly difficult to recover their mobile devices—such as smartphones and tablets—from employees after an upgrade or when the employee leaves the organization,” says Ben Jones, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mobile reCell. “Adding Mobile reCell to the Calero enterprise mobility solution equips companies with the resources for the best outcomes, including various return options for end users, secure transition for the device, recouping the highest possible residual value, and ensuring environmentally friendly device disposition.”
The combined Calero and Mobile reCell device recovery solution ensures every mobile device in an organization’s inventory—both idle and deployed—is given a new life before it is responsibly recycled.
