Avaya Introduces Device as a Service Offering

Avaya has introduced a device as a service (DaaS) offering that will enable businesses to purchase Avaya’s latest smart desktop devices on a monthly subscription basis.

Avaya now provides three ways for businesses to enjoy the Avaya Desktop Experience: up front, financed, and by subscription.

Avaya’s DaaS offering delivers the company’s latest smart devices including the the Avaya Vantage portfolio, the complete Essential Experience J100 series portfolio of IP phones, and the Avaya B109, B179, and B189 conferencing devices. With the platform agnostic capabilities of the Avaya Desktop Experience, these devices can be deployed on Avaya or non-Avaya UC platforms.

Customers can contract with terms of 1, 3, or 5 years, with longer terms offering lower monthly prices, along with the ability to upgrade at any time to more advanced devices without any penalty.

“Our customers and partners have been asking for this and we are very excited to announce this new offer,” said Greg Pelton, vice president, collaboration and devices. “It brings a new level of simplicity to UC as a Service (UCaaS) where customers can now enjoy the best cloud service and latest cloud devices, all on one monthly bill.”
