American wireless carrier Sprint has launched Workplace-as-a-Service at the Enterprise Connect 2015 Expo in Orlando.
Workplace-as-a-Service, a pay per month offer targeted at the U.S. enterprises, covers Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity, managed Wi-Fi, voice service, audio video conferencing, online collaboration, instant messaging and presence and mobile device management, and Bring Your Own Device support for laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Sprint, which is owned by SoftBank of Japan, will design and manage all core communication and key productivity tools, providing site-by-site integration and implementation, complete with service level agreements and a single source for support.
“We believe Workplace-as-a-Service offering will become the new standard for communications and connectivity solutions,” said Mike Fitz, vice president of business solutions commercialization – Sprint Business.
Sprint said Workplace-as-a-Service can save customers time and money by eliminating upfront (Capex) capital expenditures for hardware or software.
