The B2B sales channel will take Totem to the next level.

Companies that rely on the latest smartphone technology to operate a successful business now have the opportunity to cash in on outdated and broken devices. Totem, a San Diego company that specializes in processing used iPhones, BlackBerrys and other smartphones owned by consumers, plans to launch its B2B partner program September 15, 2011.

From Fortune 500 companies to nonprofit organizations, businesses that employ a mobile workforce will benefit from partnering with Totem’s expert team of mobile device recyclers, refurbishers and resellers. Totem will be in communication with C-level employees to IT and purchasing departments to discuss future business relationships, although any business, large or small, will soon be able to contact Totem directly through the new B2B website.

Totem’s B2B website will function similarly to its consumer site, with the option for larger organizations to simply send Totem their devices for appraisal. The payment procedures (check payment or PayPal) will remain intact.

Teaming up with a mobile phone buyback, data protection and recycling program allows companies to protect their investments because money is returned to the budget. This provides a cost-effective pathway to upgrading inventory. Phones that are sent to our expert resellers undergo a comprehensive data removal process that permanently deletes private corporate information.

Phones that no longer have resale value will be processed for parts and recycling centers so that precious resources used in making the smartphones are not wasted and toxic materials do not end up in landfills. Devices that are donated may even qualify for a tax deduction.

“The B2B sales channel will take Totem to the next level,” notes Totem’s recently appointed CFO/COO Rob Longo. “We have witnessed explosive growth with the launch of our B2C website in just four months, so we feel the entry into the B2B space will launch Totem as the premier smartphone recycler on the Internet.”

Totem is committed to providing the highest quality buyback program in the industry, while remaining true to its values of social responsibility. The company’s expert team of resellers, refurbishers and recyclers work diligently to ensure that consumers have an easy, efficient method to dispose of their old technology in a financially lucrative, yet environmentally friendly manner.
