Sprint honored with Frost & Sullivan 2018 New Product Innovation Award

August 10, 2018

In an era where employees are gravitating toward using their personal mobile devices for business, in lieu of having both a work and personal phone, both you and your employees are likely being tasked with navigating the challenges that come with this shift.

But how can you keep your business data secure on an employee’s personal device? How can you keep your employees at ease and assured that their personal items are being kept private? And how can you easily and efficiently manage compliance reporting and usage reimbursement? These are just a few of the complications faced in the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environment of today.

Sprint’s MultiLine answers the call with a user-friendly solution to combat these issues and simply, but surely, offer your employees freedom while giving you more control over your business. Employees are given a second number for business on that same personal mobile device – which can operate on any phone, with any carrier. With the ability to easily switch back and forth between phone numbers through the MultiLine app, the employee can maintain separation between work and personal. For work phones specifically, an employee can switch between two work lines if needed. All on the same device1.

By addressing this niche and delivering a powerful, simple solution – Sprint’s MultiLine has made a significant impact on businesses, earning praise for its effectiveness through the Frost & Sullivan 2018 New Product Innovation Award.

"The Sprint MultiLine solution uniquely balances the reporting, security, and accounting needs of businesses while retaining employee freedom of choice and personal privacy," said Brent Iadarola, vice president of mobile & wireless communications for Frost and Sullivan. "Sprint MultiLine is an innovative mobile solution that caters to the evolving demands of both businesses and employees in the era of BYOD."
