Sprint Paranet, the telecommunications company's computing services arm, is jumping on the services bandwagon through an agreement with systems integrator Avnet Computer.

Through a joint marketing agreement, Houston-based Sprint Paranet and Tempe, Arizona-based Avnet will provide customers with one contact point for design, integration, and support of computer networks, as well as integration of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, business software used to manage most internal corporate functions, including financials and human resource information.

Together, the companies said they can create a service suite designed to simplify and shorten implementation timeframes, provide a higher degree of budget predictability, and improve end user support.

Sprint Paranet, a subsidiary of Sprint, employs 1,600 certified technical analysts specializing in WAN services, VPNs, Web hosting, and IP security. Avnet is a division of Avnet, which has annual sales of more than $5.9 billion.
