Piceasoft extends the technical lead: Cutting-edge solutions for mobile devices’ whole life cycle

As the competition in engaging the customers’ attention and loyalty increases and as the mobile phone market starts including trade-in of old phones, retail shops are focusing on and creating added value into customers’ shopping experience. As a response Piceasoft launches new integrated PiceaServices software package to strengthen new mobile device sales and to provide trade-in at retail shops as a customer service.

The software makes it easy to transfer the content from an old device to a new one, to evaluate old device’s quality and price, and to securely erase its memory. Major mobile operators and retail chains, including Vodafone, Telefonica, Telenor and Elkjøp/Elgiganten/Gigantti, use the Piceasoft software in their stores to make changing or recycling a mobile device as painless for their customers as possible. The software is used in 62 countries and supports 18 languages.

“Piceasoft now extends its solution in every single aspect of mobile device life cycle, from smooth introduction of a new phone through safe and fast data transfer to a reliable diagnostics and data erasure for repair, future buyback and recycling”, says Jyri Roselius, CEO of Piceasoft.

Piceasoft’s new features allow verification, diagnostics and data erasure on multiple devices at the same time, thus enabling efficient workflow. The refreshed user experience design enables more user-friendly and faster problem solving in stores and new iOS and Android applications allow cost efficient diagnostics testing by consumers. User experience is aligned for both iOS and Android platforms. The improved reporting tool provides for example daily, weekly or monthly summary emails and allow cost efficient diagnostics testing by consumers. The new features are presented in detail at Piceasoft website, www.piceasoft.com.

The new features strengthen Piceasoft’s position as a leading company to extend the lifecycle of mobile devices and thus enhance sustainability. Piceasoft removes the obstacles related to data transfers and erasing when changing or reselling a smartphone at retail.

“There used to be inherent risks and time commitments that most people and businesses did not want to deal with. We have made switching phones and phone recycling both easy and safe”, says Samuli Ylinen, Product Director.
