Advanced Disposal Services, an integrated environmental services company, will begin rolling out mobile phones and tablets from Sprint across its fleets. Some of the devices will include the Sprint Direct Connect push-to-talk service for instant, one-to-one communication between drivers and dispatchers.
In addition to the devices, the company will leverage Sprint’s Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) which offers a different way to purchase wireless for employees by having unlimited voice calling and text messaging, a pooled or unlimited data options, and several value added services like extended warranty on the device, dedicated 24/7/365 customer service and white-glove technical support.
In addition, Advanced Disposal says the MaaS will help it to:
- Control costs with more reliable, consistent pricing and service
- Reduce time to set up and maintain mobile devices
- Manage control of their employees’ wireless usage
“We evaluated multiple wireless solutions, but Sprint’s MaaS solution enables us to better manage our mobile workforce and operations more efficiently,” said Rocky Gupta, vice president of information technology of Advanced Disposal. “The MaaS elements of the partnership allows us to spend more time on our core business, while achieving significant cost savings.”
