everphone, a Berlin, Germany-based phone-as-a-service company, raised US$200m in funding.
The round was led by Cadence Growth Capital.
The company intends to use the capital to expand activities in acquiring new business customers and to further internationalization, increasing personnel, product development efforts, as well as to grow its active device fleet, which already numbers over 100,000 devices.
Founded by former CHECK24 managing board member Jan Dzulko in 2016, everphone offers an innovative concept for the procurement, management and integration of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets in a corporate context. The phone- as-a-service model gives employees a free choice of company phones, allows flexible upgrades and changes of devices, and includes both a DSGVO-compliant Mobile Device Management (MDM), and a replacement service in case of defects. The portfolio includes devices from Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Google, and Fairphone. Since December 2020, everphone has been an official B2B partner of Samsung Electronics’ device-as-a-service strategy in Germany.
The company employs over 170 people in Berlin.
