Handset Trade-In Services at the Wireless Standard Point-of-Sale Bring Increased Store Traffic, Greater Customer Retention and Added Revenue for Retailers
New York, NY – February 19, 2014 – B2B Soft, a business-to-business software company specializing in retail management for the wireless/cellular retail industry, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Phobio, a mobile trade-in provider to the wireless industry. Phobio’s Salepoint trade-in service is now integrated with B2B Soft’s Wireless Standard Retail Management Platform. Wireless dealers can now instantly access and offer their customers Phobio’s full range of device trade-in services including Backspace Data Wiping for immediate in-store credit.
B2B Soft’s Wireless Standard Retail Management Platform has been adopted by more than 6,000 wireless dealers and master agents as the industry’s premiere solution. With seamless point-of-sale transactions, streamlined store operations, inventory control, loss prevention, resource management, integrated payment solutions and powerful business intelligence, the comprehensive platform assists retailers in running their businesses more efficiently, effectively and profitably.
By instantly offering customers compensation and trade-in credit for their used mobile devices directly at the Wireless Standard point of sale module, dealers can help customers reduce e-waste by recycling while generating an additional revenue stream in the process. The trade-in service increases store traffic, customer retention while opening new opportunities for cross selling.
Phobio provides competitive trade-in values for over 3,000 devices and its requirements for granting top-value, “working” condition trade-in on a device are far more forgiving than those of other trade-in programs. If the device powers on and has no water or physical damage then it’s considered a “working” device and eligible for the top trade-in value. The program also offers compelling trade-ins for damaged and dead devices.
Customers and dealers alike enjoy the peace of mind Phobio’s Backspace Data Wiping provides. Any possible existing personal data is wiped in under 30 seconds, at the point-of-sale, with the device restored to its factory settings and a “Death Certificate” issued for verification.
“We’re pleased to offer dealers Phobio’s exceptional trade-in services as part of Wireless Standard,” says Gary Khabinski, B2B Soft’s CEO. “It’s another great value that B2B Soft can provide dealers and their customers with and another way we can help retailers offer exceptional customer service, raise customer loyalty and increase sales and profits.”
