Collaborative and Voice Services Highlight Agreement With One of the Nation’s Top Providers in Training and Development

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Sprint (NYSE: FON PCS) today announced that it has signed a multiyear communications services agreement with Landmark Education, a global educational enterprise that provides innovative personal growth and development programs to individuals, organizations, communities, and institutions. The agreement will deliver a wide range of high-speed communications technologies, including voice and collaborative services.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Landmark offers educational programs in more than 100 cities via 60 major offices worldwide. Landmark will utilize Sprint services to improve its communications infrastructure and increase efficiency in its network operations. Sprint’s network will link Landmark’s 750 professionally trained course leaders worldwide and its corporate offices. As part of the agreement, Sprint also will provide enhanced and interactive toll-free services and FonCards.

“Landmark Education is growing at a rapid pace and it was vital to find a provider who not only possessed the right assets and technology, but was financially stable to ensure a long-term partnership,” said Bob Fox, chief technology information officer, Landmark Education. “Sprint’s broad range of capabilities permitted us to avoid a multiple-vendor solution, thus allowing economies of scale and improved operational efficiencies.”

The collaborative solutions Sprint will implement, including audio conferencing, will allow participants to exchange ideas and attend a virtual conference in real time. By utilizing Sprint’s audio conferencing services, Landmark can save significant hours of travel time and expenses.

“Sprint’s commitment to customer service and full range of capabilities was the key to winning the trust and business of Landmark Education,” said Kevin Kunkel, vice president, Sprint Business – West. “Sprint worked closely with Landmark’s IT staff to develop and implement services that will meet its growing needs today, and into the future.”
