Glencore is one of the world’s largest natural resource companies whose primary sectors of business include trading and mining commodities. Glencore required a volume order of 500 cost-effective devices for their employees to use at the job site for various purposes. Mobile Klinik considered their device requirements, use case, and budget to provide a customized solution of 500 certified pre-owned (CPO) iPhone 12s. Glencore saved $150,000 by purchasing CPOs through Mobile Klinik instead of buying new devices directly from the manufacturer.

Customer Needs

Maintaining a consistent deployment of devices throughout the year to accommodate the accident-prone mining environment was crucial for Glencore. Given the nature of their work, Glencore prioritized cost-effectiveness and functionality over the cosmetic grade of the device. Additionally, sufficient iOS capabilities to support the required mobile applications were needed.


Certified Pre-Owned iPhone 12: Good CPO Grade

Mobile Klinik offers four different grades of certified pre-owned phones: Like New, Great, Very Good, and Good. The grades are categorized by the cosmetic appearance of the devices, not the functionality of the phones. All certified pre-owned (CPO) phones have undergone a 64-point inspection test by our refurbishment team to ensure they function like new.

Key specifications of the iPhone 12 are:

  • Available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB
  • 6.1 inch (diagonal) all-screen OLED display
  • Splash, water, and dust resistant
  • A14 Bionic chip
  • iOS capabilities
  • Face ID

Charging Accessories

Mobile Klinik fulfilled a bulk order of 500 charger blocks and custom cables that were required to be compatible with Glencore’s charging infrastructure. Beyond processing and deploying bulk CPO orders, Mobile Klinik offers a variety of charging and protection options such as the all-inclusive Protection Bundle, screen protectors, cases, and more.


Downtime resulting from device failure is costly in any industry, especially the mining industry. Having a reliable pot of devices on deck allowed Glencore to streamline business operations and focus on key business priorities. Working with Mobile Klinik relieves Glencore of the mental burden of managing a fleet of devices. It also provided them with a dedicated account manager and technical expertise for all their device lifecycle management needs.
