In a real effort to make Sprint attractive to businesses, they partnered up with Google to provide Google Apps for Business allowing Sprint to seamlessly support Google's cloud-based productivity solutions – with full online support. Google has application packages for schools and business to help not only the school and businesses, but themselves as well as they gather up all the information that they can for future 'reference.'
Sprint's press release says that starting in August they will provide full service and support to ALL employees of the company, not just a select few. It will be an ongoing 24/7 support and even offer online training for no extra charge for all mobile use of Google Apps. Sprint wants to be a "one-stop shop for businesses" by packing all of Google's cloud-based solutions with one sign-on. Sprint will work with the business to offer a "complete solution" tailored specifically for their needs. Sprint claims that their mobile expertise will continue to evolve to meet a growing businesses need. Sprint claims to have built "America's Newest Network" from the ground up and includes their latest innovations – Sprint Spark and HD Voice. Mike Fitz, vice president of business solution commercialization, Sprint Business says:
"Sprint offers a variety of mobile tools to accommodate multigenerational work styles within the workplace, helping people to boost productivity and collaborate from virtually anywhere. Google's versatile toolbox makes it simple for businesses large and small to integrate best-in-class, cloud-based solutions.
