Sprint PCS yesterday announced a new inititive to increase sales to business customers. According to the company, Sprint will be the first major telecommunications provider to offer complete, end-to-end management of wireless devices and services for business customers. bq. Until now, customers either managed complex wireless solutions for themselves or paid vendors to procure, replace and upgrade devices; manage device inventory; and handle wireless security risks. The result: high costs and inefficiency --major barriers to the adoption of reliable mobile worker solutions. One of the best ways this will help business customers is that Sprint will have remote disablement. If you lose your phone, or it gets stolen, Sprint will be able to deactivate it and a password will need to be typed in before information on the handset can be retrieved.
