Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Microsoft Office 365 Offered by Sprint

Sprint is known to sell Microsoft's (News - Alert) Office 365, with support from its network and mobility expertise. The carrier’s efforts help companies to improve efficiency, decrease expenses and partner with other customers and partners to improve the Office 365 experience.

In Frost & Sullivan’s (News - Alert) newly published report, Microsoft’s Office 365 solution being offered by Sprint “reflects a sharpened understanding of U.S. small business needs.”

Frost & Sullivan has pointed out various factors that have fueled Sprint’s (News - Alert) excellence in the field. The carrier’s products cater to the specific needs of small businesses in U.S, and are not expensive relative to other solutions from its competitors.

When selling Microsoft Office 365, Sprint provides something called Carefree Cloud, which simplifies the process of purchasing and maintaining the product, the report stated.

Customers will have to pay a monthly fee to access these services.

With its Office 365 products, Microsoft offers a set of services that provide anywhere, anytime access to important office files such as e-mails, calendars and office Web apps.

“We firmly believe that Sprint stands out among its peers by offering not only a tightly integrated, professional communications solution in Microsoft Office 365; the wireless provider also meets real small business needs by providing its personalized ‘Carefree Cloud’ onboarding and migration services at no additional charge,” said Jeanine Sterling, Principal Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “Too often, technology can act as a barrier instead of as an enabler. Sprint doesn’t leave small businesses to just cope with day-to-day demands on their own.”

Sprint started offering cloud-enabled Microsoft Office 365 since August 2012. The offering was mainly targeted at small businesses. The company has also announced that it would sell its Productivity Suites’ enterprise-class communication to make the offer more attractive.
