Buy and rent back (BARB)
The easy way to integrate your devices in our service
If you are thinking about getting smartphones and tablets via “device as a service”, one of your first questions will probably be: what happens to the devices we already have?
The quick answer: we will buy these legacy devices off of your organization and rent them back to you. We call this process “buy and rent back” (BARB). While BARB may sound a bit confusing, it is actually really simple.
The BARB purchase happens “on paper” only, meaning that your current devices don’t have to be turned in or anything of that sort. Your colleagues can continue to use the devices. The only difference: the phones or tablets are now covered with the full Everphone service, including free of charge repairs.
Your benefits with BARB
When switching to device as a service, you can sell us your existing devices with BARB. It’s an easy way to integrate your devices into our service—while at the same time preparing your whole fleet for a step-by-step modernization.
BARB in practice
Modernizing the entire fleet—one device at a time
The trick here is: your “buy and rent back” devices can be upgraded to a newer model after only one month. In practice, your employees can order one of the newer phones if their legacy phone is broken or if they prefer one of the new company phones from our portfolio. That way, your entire fleet is modernizing itself in the background—with no tickets for your IT team. We handle all of it!
