Sprint to Launch Wholesale Cloud Services

Sprint is preparing to launch Wholesale Cloud Services later this year, providing a suite of applications for SMB-focused resellers.

The idea is to package multi-vendor hosted software services with a software delivery platform. The Sprint Wholesale Cloud Services portfolio consists of both Software as a Service (SaaS) and Communications as a Service (CaaS) solutions intended to help SMBs grow their business. SMBs can take advantage of SaaS product offerings to increase efficiency in the areas of business process, archiving, Web commerce and security. Sprint’s CaaS portfolio offers access to many of today’s preferred communications enablement software solutions.

"Sprint Wholesale Cloud Services enable Wholesale partners and their customers to get to market faster by reducing the number of contracts they are required to manage and aggregating all of the software offerings through a single Web interface,�? said Ben Vos, vice president, Wholesale Business Operations - Sprint. “We’ve minimized the initial capital expenditure required to enter the Cloud Services marketplace, allowing our clients to service their SMB customers with top-tier software solutions, without breaking the bank."
