Salt Lake City, Utah, September 5, 2007
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has announced that FranklinCovey (NYSE:FC) has awarded AT&T a contract worth more than $3 million. The three-year agreement will enhance FranklinCovey's voice, data and wireless capabilities with local and long distance voice, AT&T wireless services and Managed Internet Services (MIS).
FranklinCovey is a global leader in effectiveness training, productivity tools and assessment services for organizations, teams and individuals. FranklinCovey helps a company succeed by unleashing the power of its workforce to focus and execute on top business priorities.
In addition to new wireless services, FranklinCovey has renewed its contract for AT&T's OneNet® voice services, which provide voice and data connectivity to each of FranklinCovey's 87 domestic retail stores and consultative sales offices to the corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City. The company's Point-of-Sale (POS) applications use AT&T's DSL service to communicate customer account and inventory information on a real-time basis so that the store employees can provide the highest customer service possible.
As part of the new contract, FranklinCovey is moving all of its wireless services to AT&T. By using AT&T's wireless services, FranklinCovey will now have the ability to streamline its wireless voice and data usage to one device. The company's previous wireless provider required FranklinCovey to have separate devices for each application. AT&T's wireless solution will simplify FranklinCovey's wireless process, as well as reduce its costs.
"As a company that offers our own customers effectiveness training and productivity, it is crucial that we have the most efficient and reliable technology available to deliver the best results," said Mike Connelly, chief information officer, FranklinCovey. "FranklinCovey has been pleased with the voice and data services provided by AT&T, and we are extremely happy that the new streamlined wireless offering will provide us with cost-efficiencies and ease of use and will contribute to our bottom line."
The agreement renews and expands a relationship between the two companies that spans more than 10 years.
