New York, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2011
When upgrading to the latest and greatest handsets and services, the question of what to do with, or what is to become of the obsolete (or we think soon to be) mobile device we are discarding lurks somewhere in the background. Over 100 million mobile phones wind up in landfills annually, and with them, the extremely high and probable risk that they’re leeching dangerous waste like arsenic, lead, cadmium, and beryllium into our water and soil when disposed of improperly. So what’s a body to do when that new Android device or iPhone is calling and you want to do the right thing for the environment?
B2B Soft, a leader in business-to-business software solutions specializing in retail management for the wireless/cellular retail industry, is pleased to announce a new partnership with CExchange of Carrollton, Texas to make the wireless sales experience a little greener. The R3 electronics trade in is powered by CExchange’s recycling capabilities and is being fully integrated into B2B Soft’s flagship product, Wireless Standard. Now used in over 4,000 wireless retail locations, Wireless Standard is the industry’s premier Retail Management System.
CExchange is committed to the three R’s: reduce, reuse, and recycle, and actively works with manufacturers, retailers, and consumers to reduce the amount of e-waste generated. The company reuses, repairs, refurbishes, or recycles all of the electronics that it receives, reducing the amount of raw materials needed to manufacture new devices and thereby helping to conserve precious natural resources. The R3 Brand allows independent wireless retailers to differentiate their trade-in offerings from their competition and supports them through unique customer promotions and mdf/coop programs.
With immediate access to the CExchange program via Wireless Standard, retailers can extend trade in options to their customers on their old devices, increasing sales on new phones and profits in the process. But wireless dealers and customers aren’t the only ones profiting from the B2B Soft and CExchange green pairing. Planet Earth comes out ahead as well. Everything that isn’t reused by CExchange is 100% recycled and CExchange will never directly or indirectly allow consumer electronics products it receives to ever be sent to landfills, domestically or internationally.
“We’re pleased to partner with a company that’s as committed to the environment as it is to its profits—it’s their business after all,” says Don Rossi, B2B Soft’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “The CExchange integration gives Wireless Standard customers another great option to provide an enhanced consumer experience as well as make a difference for the environment, at the same time at the point of sale. Now that’s golden and green.”
