CallTower Collaborates with Sprint

By Deepika Mala, TMCnet Contributor


CallTower (News - Alert), the market-leading provider of unified communications as a service (UCaaS), has teamed up with Sprint to offer a new solution that incorporates CallTower's UCaaS service with Sprint's (News - Alert) integrated wireline and wireless networks enabling true mobile unified communications.

Without expensive hardware and infrastructure investments, long and complex deployments, or ongoing support and upgrade concerns, this collaboration will help businesses benefit by experiencing the gained productivity, cost savings and enterprise-class reliability in a unified communications solution.

"Mobile workers now have the freedom to access powerful communications tools with one device and one number regardless if they are on the road or in the office, boosting productivity while reducing companies' overall communications costs," Bob Barnes, executive VP of sales, marketing and business development at CallTower, said in a press release. "By integrating Sprint's reliable, secure fixed and mobile networks with CallTower's UCaaS services, businesses have access to best-of-breed unified communications solutions without the capex and management resources required from an in-house solution," Barnes added.

"Businesses of all sizes are very interested in Unified Communications (News - Alert) from a productivity and cost-savings standpoint," commented Kevin Kunkel, VP of business markets group at Sprint. "Sprint and CallTower's offer provides a consistent, seamless workplace for businesses, and is a perfect fit for companies that need to avoid hardware expenses, while managing complex implementations and day-to-day requirements," Kunkel continued.

The users can dial an extension number from a Sprint mobile phone and reach a corporate user, benefiting from a single number, one central voicemail, and enhanced call management features, with Sprint Mobile Integration.

Integrated completely with Sprint's industry-leading 4G and 3G networks and related wireless applications, the solution provides cost savings from the elimination of local trunks, reduction in desk phones needed for mobile employees, and lower calling rates. The locations leveraging Sprint's Global MPLS network will be offered with CallTower service.

In related news, CallTower has launched the CallTower Mobility, which combines CallTower's UCaaS service with Sprint Mobile Integration.
