At many organizations, used devices end up in a drawer, closet or storage room, where they become a headache for somebody (maybe you?). These units should never end up in landfill; they contain both valuable materials and hazardous substances. Often, the devices still work perfectly well and could enjoy a second life, but getting them into the hands of other users can be challenging. Also, whether you’re planning to recycle or donate your used devices, you need to be 100 per cent certain that all company data has been wiped. For these reasons and others, many old handsets lie around collecting dust.
At the same time, the global demand for used devices is vast and growing. In many parts of the world, new smartphones are beyond the means of much of the population, but being connected is an increasing necessity. Gently used devices are highly prized by businesses and consumers in these markets. There’s also a global demand for the recyclable metals and other materials in them.
Given these facts, doesn’t it make sense to connect the supply with the demand—especially if it can have a positive impact on your business’s bottom line?
To help our business customers dispose of company-owned devices and get value in return, we recently launched Rogers Business Trade-Up. This buy-back program is smart, safe and simple. To get a quote for the trade-in value of your phones, you can either speak with your Rogers representative or fill out our online form. Within 24 hours you’ll receive a quote guaranteed for 30 days, and a Rogers Business Trade-Up representative will quickly enrol you. Once you receive your shipping labels, you can simply pack your devices in a box and send them free of charge. You’ll receive confirmation of receipt and confirmation of the trade-in value. Within two to three billing cycles you’ll receive a credit on your Rogers invoice. Business Trade-Up guarantees 100 per cent data removal, so there is no risk for your business. Devices that can’t be resold are recycled according to ISO 4001 standards, which helps your company with its green initiatives.
Rogers Business Trade-Up accepts phones and tablets from many carriers. The criteria are simple: for full trade-in value the device has to power on and the screen must work and can’t be cracked or chipped.
