Bag Borrow or Steal

Founded in 2004, Bag Borrow or Steal often gets described as the “Netflix for Handbags” since it allows customers to rent high-end bags from Chanel; Chloe; Coach; Fendi; Gucci and others. With growth and a new infusion of capital, the company had to quickly expand both its offerings and its ability to deliver.

With the launch of a new consignment business, BBoS’s technology needs changed dramatically. They wanted a more cost effective way to deliver services across their portfolio. As a eCommerce company, they needed a next generation cloud strategy. They required anonymity through the vendor evaluation process to ensure their purchasing process and strategy were maintained.


While keeping BBoS anonymous, Avail provided comprehensive due diligence and evaluations of datacenters, managed hosting companies and networking vendors. Through an application workshop, Avail evaluated BBoS’ internal capabilities and performed cloud rationalization for key applications.


• Application Workshops and requirements gathering
• Cloud Rationalization
• Due Diligence via Market Intelligence Assessment
• Solutions Architecture
• Proposal Management


BBoS regained the freedom to focus on building their core business. They gained the agility of Cloud Economics and the benefits of access to experts-on-demand. Avail saved the client weeks of vendor and contract evaluation time.

• Value was achieved by gaining greater scale without cost increase
• Designed a superior database support model.
• Avoided hiring additional staff

“Avail saved us weeks of vendor and contract evaluation time…they gave us confidence that trusted, well-vetted and 100% aligned professionals are supporting our eCommerce infrastructure, allowing us to concentrate on our brand and our business.”
