Get ready for another keyword to fill in before "As-a-Service."

Sprint is making a bigger push at attracting enterprise customers with the debut of its new Workplace-as-a-Service offering.

Workplace-as-a-Service is essentially an out-of-the-box kind of deal, touting to include everything a new business would need when it comes to both wired and wireless tech when setting up shop.

That includes voice, Wi-Fi and WAN configurations, video conferencing, mobile device management with wireless plan options for tablets and smartphones, and cloud-based collaboration tools, among other items.

Technically, these are all things Sprint already offers to corporate customers.

What is new is how they are being sold, tied together in a neat and tidy package deal, which could alleviate (or eliminate) more stress rather than just costs.

Having all of these business solutions streamlined into one of line of service could also go a long way in establishing Sprint's corporate cred in the long run by hitting up businesses when they're smaller.

Sprint said it is targeting companies with employee bases ranging anywhere from 100 to 10,000.

Also aiming for companies with larger geographical footprints and multiple offices (thus the emphasis on video conferencing and online collaboration), Workplace-as-a-Service is also designed to support between 20 and 200 users at each location.
