Deloitte Consulting and Sprint Join Forces to Service E-business

Fresh on the heels of the proposed merger between MCI and Sprint, Deloitte Consulting and Sprint today announced an effort to team the two businesses together as an application service provider (ASP) in the ever-emerging e-business sector.

Services targeted to Fortune 1000 companies include e-commerce, enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management and data warehousing. Naturally, Sprint is focused on the technology end of the business, while Deloitte will provide consulting in the systems and business integration arenas.

Sprint says the pending merger with MCI, previously reported on AccountingWeb, will not affect the new ASP venture.
