Mobile Device Lifecycle

Mobile Device Lifecycle Value Optimization

Belmont’s Mobile Device Solutions Group provides a broad range of value recovery and asset management services for all types of mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, eReaders, wearables, IoT devices, and associated accessories. The clients we partner with to develop and deploy these solutions include carriers, OEMs, retailers, device insurance firms, and other firms seeking value- and sustainability-optimizing solutions for devices transitioning from one lifecycle stage to the next.

Triage process

At the center of most of our mobile device solutions is our industry-leading triage process (click to see detail).

Every resalable device we handle goes through some portion of this process. Some clients are looking for specific point services such as data wiping; others are looking for broader sorting and grading services.

However, the true power of this process is that—when coupled with our industry leading global footprintenvironmental credentials, and security measures—it can form the foundation for end-to-end solutions tailored to a client’s specific mobile device lifecycle management needs.

Case study

One such solution is the mobile device take back program we developed and currently manage for a major Latin American carrier. This solution leverages Belmont’s local market knowledge and processing capability along with our local and global B2B and B2C remarketing channels to help the client improve customer loyalty and generate incremental revenue.
