Sprint Business Earns Frost & Sullivan’s New Product Innovation Award for Its MultiLine Mobile Business Solution
The MultiLine management portal enables enterprises to manage deployments for all business phone numbers and users in one simple Web-based location
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — August 13, 2018 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American mobile business solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Sprint Business with the 2018 North America New Product Innovation Award for its MultiLine solution. It is an all-in-one app for business use on a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) device, essentially creating two distinct lines on a single device—one for business and one for personal use. This mobile business solution balances the reporting, security, and accounting needs of businesses while retaining employees’ freedom of choice and personal privacy.

“In an era when BYOD has emerged as the preferred option for employees, MultiLine is a convenient, secure, and economical solution for businesses seeking to dedicate and protect communications in the BYOD environment,” said Brent Iadarola, Vice President at Frost & Sullivan. “The app delivers enterprise-grade functionality and security on any iOS or Android smartphone, regardless of the employee’s service carrier.”
The MultiLine app offers a host of separate business-ready features such as a dialer, contact list, call logs, text messaging, voicemail, scheduler, auto-transfer, three-way conferencing, and a do-not-disturb setting. For enterprises, it presents add-ons like mobile recording (both voice and text), enterprise mobility management (EMM) integrations, and an administrative portal.
Because MultiLine protects company information and contacts on a separate number and location, it facilitates compliance with mobile device regulations. The app helps simplify enterprises’ communication strategy by reducing the hassle of parsing out and accounting for business and personal calls.
“MultiLine’s advanced management allows administrators to assign or reassign business line numbers, centralize control of information and add-ons, and integrate with EMM systems,” noted Iadarola. “Overall, Frost & Sullivan was highly impressed with MultiLine’s ability to balance the reporting, security, and accounting needs of businesses, while retaining employee freedom of choice and personal privacy.”
