B2X Selected as a "Cool Vendor" in the Supply Chain Industry by Gartner

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - B2X Care Solutions, the leading provider of customer care for electronic devices, today announced that Gartner has named it as a "Cool Vendor" alongside four other companies in its April 22, 2014, "Cool Vendors in Supply Chain Services 2014" report. Companies chosen for this report are determined solely by Gartner's analyst team.

High tech OEMs need to deliver superior customer service in highly competitive sectors such as the mobile industry to remain competitive and increase both market share and revenue. An often overlooked aspect of this customer service is aftermarket services such as warranty, reverse logistics and repair. B2X can connect front office customer care to back office aftermarket services using its integrated Smart Service Platform, which coordinates the company's global service partner network with retailers, OEMs, insurance companies and third-party aftermarket service providers.

"B2X is a strategic partner for Motorola Mobility LLC., working with us to deliver great results in our support and repair operations in several markets around the world," said Richard Wooldridge, Corporate Vice President Operations & Logistics at Motorola Mobility LLC.

"A streamlined approach to customer service is crucial, especially in the mobile industry, due to its fiercely competitive nature," said Thomas Berlemann, CEO of B2X. "Our Smart Service Platform was created to simplify both the frontend customer support experience and the backend repair, parts and logistics processes, and remove much of the ambiguity typically found in the telecom industry supply chain."

In related news, B2X is a Network Products Guide Hot Company finalist in the both the "Hot Companies and Organizations" and CODiE awards for the "Best Supply Chain Management Solution" category. Additionally, B2X was named as a Ruban d'Honneur "Top 100 in Europe" recipient and finalist in the European Business Awards. Winners for these awards will be determined in the coming weeks.
