By leveraging the power of Microsoft Dynamics and Microsoft Power Platform, GreenTraxEV streamlines the scheduling, routing, and logistics of EV battery management. Ascend Elements and Call2Recycle can tailor the GreenTraxEV workflow to meet the specific requirements of any customer.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Call2Recycle and offer a comprehensive EV battery recycling and tracking program to our customers,” said Ian Braime, Chief Commercial Officer at Ascend Elements. “This new program will help automotive dealerships, repair shops and recyclers prepare for the wave of EV batteries that is expected in the coming years.”
