RepairDesk offers a very efficient way to manage the inventory of your handsets and sell them to a customer. Handsets are one of those items for which you would always need to keep a track record, like which of the handsets are sold, refunded, or in warranty. They are not ordinary inventory items, like a whole bunch of mobile covers all having only one function - protect the phone and please the aesthetics. Handsets have specific IMEIs, technology specifications, and they are a lot more expensive.
