Optimize Your Trade-in and Upgrade Program

Trade-in offers are an increasingly important part of the economic equation for incentivizing consumers to upgrade their devices. Mobile carriers with optimized trade-in and upgrade programs can offer their customers better value, encourage demand and generate revenue from new devices. 

At the same time, the right asset disposition program can monetize reverse logistics by reselling legacy devices into secondary markets. The trend toward upgraded devices will only accelerate as carriers adopt 5G to improve services and networks. 

Carriers with the right offers will be better positioned to gain brand loyalty and capture new market share in the 5G era and beyond.

A Data-Driven Pricing Model

The performance of your trade-in and upgrade program is no place for complacency. That's why we employ an innovative, proprietary, data-driven approach that continually optimizes results. Through AI machine learning and data analytics, our global pricing engine works at the point of sale, providing an optimal price point that stimulates trade-in while maintaining margin. 

 

This approach consistently beats competitor pricing for device trade-ins by 20% or more while still leaving room to optimize the sale of your legacy devices.

Used phones are moved quickly at the highest possible price throughout our global distribution network. As a result, you get greater value from legacy devices while maximizing revenue from customer upgrades.
