Case Study: GameStop

CheckMEND POS and Refurbishment Facilities Integration

GameStop are the world’s largest multichannel videogame retailer. There are 4,200 stores in the US all of which have an active smartphone trade-in program.

GameStop quickly recognized that consumers were becoming more aware of the value that exists in their old electronics, and as an industry leader already familiar with trade-in schemes GameStop were ideally placed to meet that consumer need.

As a company that continually invests in technology GameStop determined a solution should be sought to ensure that their expanded operations continued to provide the best and safest choice for consumers to buy, sell and trade.

Recipero’s CheckMEND service was quickly identified as most suitable solution due to its reputable data sources and proven abilities to identify devices that are not eligible for trade. To ensure a rapid and effective rollout to GameStop stores Recipero’s development team worked closely with GameStop to provide a solution that was tailored to their specific operational requirements.

Integrating the Recipero CheckMEND technology with our POS systems and refurbishment facilities was simple and efficient. Their product is an integral part of our efforts to protect our customers and be in full compliance with local regulations.
