Warehousing Guide for Used Mobile Devices

warehouse optimization with NSYS

Controlling a warehouse is a challenging task especially for wholesalers dealing with products in bulk. The used phone industry is no different. From the moment mobile phones are purchased onward, problems surge at each checkpoint such as receiving less devices than what was paid for; receiving unwanted used phones in terms of quality and cosmetic condition, losing or damaging packages during transfers, space limitations, etc. Is there any solution?

1. Receiving Phones

Documentation is a process during which you will decide how many devices your inventory is able to stock, and what kind of smartphones in terms of type, quality, and packaging details are needed.

After checking the number of containers, goods are transferred to be sorted.

Phones’ cosmetic conditions vary undoubtedly, in other words, some may be slightly defective, others having broken parts, fake batteries, etc. Physical defects can be detected visually, however, internal defects take long procedures to be spotted and some are not. This means that a double-check is required.

Using software solutions not only saves you time from doing the procedure manually, but it is also much more accurate. Functionality tests and cosmetic condition evaluations are provided for up to 60 devices within minutes through NSYS Diagnostics and NSYS Autograding.

2. Logistics' Sorting

Throughout the process, packages are scanned and tracked by unique barcodes. This enables parties to monitor and record the whereabouts of the parcel at all times.

Time is money, isn’t it? Finding the stored goods the fastest way possible plays part in your business success. For that reason, to maximize availability and minimize costs of holding stocks, take into account the following sorting criteria: sorting by brand (i.e. Apple, Samsung), sorting by type (i.e. iPhone 13 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 10), and sorting by characteristics (i.e. grade, color).

3. Stock Optimization

Goods can be randomly stored. Although on paper it is still the same number of goods stored, in reality it heavily alters your business. Developed logistics sorting centers use a WMS (Warehouse Management System).

Top performing warehouses have indulged in smart solutions for rapid growth. With cloud inventory management systems, you can better optimize processes, secure more profit and make smarter and faster decisions.

NSYS Inventory is the software that allows managers to track the inventory and control the movement of warehouse materials. It equips your employees with the necessary tools to work with ease! This will guarantee more space in your inventory, structure your work, and minimize the risks of causing damages or potential device-losses.

4. Shipping to end-customers

Taking FedEx as an example, what exactly makes it so special?

FedEx has proprietary shipping management software. Clients prepare their packages by printing a shipping label and requesting a pickup. A driver picks the package up for processing.

Once it gets to the center, it is routed according to its shipping method, either to the airport and air security screening for express service, or by truck for ground delivery. The package goes to the nearest processing plant to the delivery address and is checked in. 

Delivery drivers take the package to the recipient. Constant location scans show up on the FedEx website, for the customer to track the delivery progress. Packages are received within 2-5 days.

How can NSYS Group help you optimize your business?

NSYS Diagnostics checks the devices’ functionality: up to 60 devices in less than 2 minutes.

NSYS Autograding classifies phones based on their cosmetic condition.

NSYS Inventory provides full access with ease to logistics’ warehouses. This cell phone inventory software allows SKU management system, stock inventory control by IMEI tracking, and full control over the information processing in distribution systems.

By integrating NSYS software, you get the power of full business automation so providing world-class services to customers is no longer a dilemma.
