What is the benefit of BARB (buy and rent back)?

With BARB (“buy and rent back”), you can integrate legacy devices into the Everphone services.

  • If a BARB device breaks, it will be immediately upgraded to a brand-new current device.
  • All devices are inventoried in the customer portal.
  • After four weeks, all legacy devices can be upgraded to current models, for example from an iPhone 13 to an iPhone 14.

BARB is the easy way to modernize your device fleet–one phone at a time.

You also shift investment costs to operating costs (“capex to opex” shift). On the one hand, this enables companies to free up capital immediately, and on the other, they can claim operating costs against tax.

You also get rid of all the old unused devices in that IT drawer of yours.

BARB is a smooth transition from traditional procurement to “Device as a Service“.
