With the new network, KM2 will be able to continuously manage its customer centers through a variety of service-focused services and applications such as email, chat, text messaging, faxing and phone. KM2 can use Sprint's network as a one-stop shop for all of its business communication needs.

Network connectivity will be available across Honduras, Colombia, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, Barbados and Grenada.

Network solutions like the one Sprint is providing KM2 are especially important during severe storms in the Caribbean, and as a means to replace legacy network infrastructures with better connectivity.

KM2 employs more than 4,000 people who support U.S. businesses across various industries including finance, healthcare and e-commerce.
