CWCO vs. GWRS: Which Stock Is the Better Value Option?

Sprint Corporation S recently announced the launch of Sprint Smart UC. Characterized by an affordable fully-featured unified communications solution, the Smart UC is powered by BroadSoft, Inc., which is presently a part of Cisco Systems, Inc. CSCO. BroadSoft is communication software and service provider, and a widely-recognized industry leader in cloud UC.

Organizations often face challenges related to employee-productivity enhancement, workforce mobilization, simplification of remote work, replacement of legacy equipment, reduction of IT operational costs and streamlining of business processes. The Sprint Smart UC addresses such challenges by offering a robust work-from-anywhere solution that brings fully-integrated communication and collaboration services together.

Also, it helps employees to work in their own way and get the maximum output by uniting the business phone system and collaboration applications under one hub, which can be easily administered from an online portal.

The solution can be seamlessly integrated into a Sprint-converged IT platform, comprising world-class wireless, wireline and IoT solutions with one point of contact. It is aimed at elevating employee collaboration and organizational communication.

Administrators can leverage this powerful, converged IT-management platform for their enterprises while integrating Sprint Smart UC. This would also eliminate countless API integrations with a Sprint Business converged platform for faster and simpler workflow.

The solution -- coupled with Sprint's strong converged platform capabilities, technology and next-generation networks -- enables CIOs and IT administrators to simplify and enhance operations on every level.

With such innovative product offerings, shares of Sprint have outperformed the industry over the past three months with an average return of 8.8% as against a decline of 3.3% for the latter.

Sprint carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some better-ranked stocks in the industry are United States Cellular Corporation USM, sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and SITO Mobile, Ltd. SITO, carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.
