About Sprint Integration
Formed in 2008, it was a match made in the comms room – the union of two separate teams of engineers with complementary skill sets.
Sprint can trace its roots back as far as 1992, when an experienced team of telecommunications professionals formed a company whose aim was to provide the very latest in business telephone systems to ISO9001 standards. But as phone technology aligned itself ever more closely with IP networks, by the turn of the century it was clear that Sprint had as much call for advanced IT knowledge as its traditional communications skills.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town (OK, it was actually a different town), Omnisys Ltd was an IT services company formed in 2001 by a motivated team of consultants whose ambition was to bring the benefits of their blue chip experience to the mass SME market place. These engineers had helped support networks for organisations which included NatWest, Credit Suisse, AT&T and Barclays. In the small business arena, they soon witnessed the same trend for computer telephony integration, which Sprint had identified several years before.
In 2008, Sprint merged with Omnisys Ltd to form Sprint Integration Ltd. The companies relocated from their respective Wickford and Basildon offices to their current location close to Southend in Essex and, with both sets of staff operating from the same premises, the business was immediately able to offer its customers comprehensive IT and communications solutions with a joined up approach to support and account management.
Four years on and this marriage of convenience is still going strong. Sprint is ideally placed to embrace the growing trend of computer telephony integration and its clients are delighted with their ability to source all ICT services from a single supplier. Of course, the story of Sprint does not end here – in fact, it is only just getting into its stride – but all concerned are confidently predicting a ‘happy every after’.
