The recent launch of the “Device Buyback for Business” service, available to clients of Jamf Device Management through the Jamf App Marketplace marks a significant advancement in the field of device management.

As the technology landscape evolves, so does the need for efficient device management and responsible disposal. Phobio is proud to extend its expertise in device buyback to businesses utilizing Jamf‘s innovative platform for managing Apple devices deployed throughout over 72,500 businesses, schools and hospitals. This collaboration reduces the cost of upgrading devices by maximizing the return value of retired equipment.

“When we launched the Apple trade-in program in 2017, Jamf’s new products were reaching a wider customer base that we mutually served. We’re thrilled to be partnering today with Jamf using device trade-in to drive growth, innovation and sustainability together.”

5. Innovation and Growth: By simplifying device management, businesses can redirect their focus and resources towards innovation, fostering growth and competitiveness.

Businesses are in constant pursuit of efficient device lifecycle management, reduction in electronic waste, and maintaining a competitive edge through innovation.  As we enter 2024, several predicted trends in business technology are expected to shape the landscape, and the Phobio-Jamf collaboration aims to meet these needs by offering comprehensive and sustainable solutions suitable for organizations of all sizes.

Among the key trends for business technology in 2024 are:

  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Expansion: AI and machine learning continue to grow in importance. Businesses are expected to increasingly adopt these technologies for data analysis, customer service (through chatbots), and enhancing decision-making processes. Advanced AI algorithms are predicted to become more mainstream in automating complex tasks.
  • Increased Focus on Cybersecurity: With the rise in cyber threats, businesses are anticipated to invest more in cybersecurity measures. This includes the adoption of advanced security technologies like AI-driven threat detection and blockchain for secure transactions.
  • Remote and Hybrid Work Solutions: The trend of remote and hybrid work models is expected to persist in 2024. Consequently, there will be a growing demand for tools and technologies that support remote collaboration, such as improved virtual meeting platforms, project management tools, and virtual private networks (VPNs).
  • Sustainable and Green Technology: With a growing emphasis on sustainability, businesses are predicted to increasingly adopt green technologies. This includes energy-efficient data centers, sustainable IT practices, and the use of technology to monitor and reduce carbon footprints.
  • Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) in Training and Development: AR and VR technologies are expected to be increasingly used for employee training and development, especially in industries like manufacturing, healthcare, and retail.

With innovation, security, and efficiency as competitive advantages in 2024, organizations require smart and simple device lifecycle management from procurement to retirement. Jamf’s partnership with Phobio aims to fuel client growth by helping them recoup more value from used devices to invest in upgrades while reducing resources needed to provide optimal device protection and productivity.

As our CEO has stated,“This collaboration aligns perfectly with our commitment to innovation and sustainability. Together, we empower businesses to seamlessly transition to cutting-edge technology while responsibly managing their electronic footprint.”
