End-of-Life Solution Management for Mobile Devices Reduces MNCs Security, Compliance and Sustainability Risks
Source: Sustain Mobile
An investigation conducted by SustainMobile shows that, while the vast majority of European Multi-National Corporations (MNCs) express they have adequate solutions in place for handling EoL mobile devices, in reality less than 5% of them actually do. These companies have typically transferred responsibility to their telecom services provider and consider themselves protected by the outsourcing contract. Telecom outsourcing processes often lack appropriate criteria in the Request For Proposal (RFP) to govern EoL responsibility. Contracts tend to be signed without MNCs having the basic conditions in place for the operator to successfully carry out the task.
