Sprint to Begin Offering Google Apps for Business

NEW YORK (TheStreet) –– Sprint (S) has teamed with Google (GOOGL - Get Report) to start offering Google Apps for Business, as the company continues to focus on the changes in the work place and cater to the mobile worker.

As part of the deal, terms of which weren't announced, Sprint will offer service and support for the devices, the company's mobile expertise, as well become a "one stop shop for companies," according to John Tudhope, Sprint's director of product marketing.

"We feel the market is really taking us in cloud services," Tudhope said in an interview with TheStreet. "This gives us a perspective to change the conversation from a Sprint perspective to offer new data services to customers that might not have relationship with Sprint today. It's going to offer more opportunity for us to drive our mobile offerings."
