Avaya, which offers communication services, has announced an entirely new offer for 2019. The company offers a device-as-a-service (DaaS). This gives businesses the opportunity to have access to Avaya’s latest smart desktop devices by paying a fixed monthly fee for them.

In the same way that consumers can buy a smart device in a local shop, Avaya gives companies a range of different ways to buy new equipment. Companies can choose from three options. They can simply purchase a device, enter into a financing process, or take out a subscription service.

Wide available

The DaaS option is available for a number of Avaya devices. This means that the entire Vantage portfolio is available within DaaS. The Essential Experience J100 phones and the Avaya B189, B179 and B109 conference devices can also be purchased as part of this programme. Companies that conclude a DaaS contract will use it for 1, 3 to 5 years.

It is also possible to go for a longer term, with lower monthly prices. In addition, Avaya offers the possibility to upgrade devices in the meantime. More sophisticated equipment is therefore simply available for people with a contract. Companies do not have to pay fines for this.

New strategy

The new DaaS offering is part of Avaya’s new market strategy. This has led to major changes in the way it tries to sell its products. In any case, this is a convenient and smart solution for companies to purchase the latest hardware options, without having to incur high costs.

Greg Pelton, vice president of Collaboration and Devices, states in a statement about the DaaS offering that both partners and customers ask for the opportunity. Avaya had to do some work to make this possible, but in the end he succeeded.
