Sprint (NYSE: S) has announced it has launched Sprint MultiLine, an enterprise-grade solution within its Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) portfolio, that allows businesses to add a company-owned number for voice and text on any mobile device, regardless of carrier, the company said.
Demand for BYOD is expected to continue to grow enormously in the next few years. According to IDC´s Enterprise Mobility Update from June, 2017, 91% of enterprise IT decision makers indicated their companies support BYOD programs. Of those companies, 65% said they have experienced opex or capex savings as a result of implementing an employee liable device program.
This new technology is handset agnostic, allowing Sprint´s clients to successfully manage second line and BYOD programs, no matter which type of device employees use, or the underlying carrier that employees work with. This means enterprises can add a fully functional business line to any personal device while maintaining complete separation of mobile identities, increasing productivity for businesses and convenience for employees.
With Sprint MultiLine, businesses will be able to control costs with company-owned numbers and real-time analytics of corporate mobile data, text and voice usage. Secure voice and text logging is also available for regulated enterprises, such as financial institutions or large healthcare organizations, to ensure compliance.
Movius (www.moviuscorp.com), a provider of cloud-based mobile communication services, will power Sprint MultiLine with its patented technology and communications platform.
