This week, Sprint will begin offering the location-neutral, cloud-based voice solution Switch (from Switch Communications) for businesses that use Google Apps. Switch strengthens Sprint’s portfolio of recent business customer offerings, which includes Google Apps for Work, Workplace-as-a-Service, UberConference, and Ping Identity.
The benefits are clear: Switch fits companies of any size, costs much less than traditional PBX systems, offers seamless call switching, and allows for easy set up. Perhaps most important, the solution unleashes the productivity potential of mobility, a key factor to attract millennials.
Today’s workplaces need location-neutral, multi-device solutions like Switch that support BYOD preferences among employees. Switch will keep businesses from using costly disparate systems that are complex and stifle productivity. It also helps business owners predict their costs as their businesses grow—and without huge upfront capital investments.
“The biggest advantage of Switch is that it modernizes the workplace,” said Jaime Jones, president, Postpaid Consumer and General Business, Sprint. “With more employees entering the workforce who seek collaboration opportunities and mobility, businesses need to consider this seamless method of communicating and getting things done quicker.”
No other major carrier has a comprehensive Google Apps-centric mobile workplace solution like Sprint. Complementing the solution are Sprint’s mobility expertise, its standing as a trusted advisor to businesses, its award-winning deployment and its ongoing support at a predictable monthly cost.
With the Sprint offer of Switch, each employee gets unlimited domestic calls, while on the Sprint network, and texts for $15 per month per employee. Because all upgrades and future features go with the monthly charge, users will always have the most up-do-date version.
“Businesses have been shifting their core productivity applications to the cloud, and voice is a key component of that experience," said Jeanne DeWitt, Chief Revenue Officer at Switch Communications. “A cloud based solution like Switch is tranformative for the mobile worker, allowing greater collaboration and increased productivity. Switch instantly improves the communications experience not only for the end-user but for operations, freeing up IT resources to focus more on strategic business needs."
