SPRINT, CISD INTERNATIONAL JOIN FORCES TO SELL TO ASIAN BUSINESS CUSTOMERS

 KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE: FON) today announced CISD International will market Sprint telecommunications services to Japanese, Korean, Chinese and American businesses primarily in Southern California and the New York City area.
 CISD, a provider of a sophisticated mix of computer/communication products and services designed to maximize business productivity, also will market Sprint's business services to U.S. branches of companies based in Asia.
 CISD representatives will market Sprint's small to mid-sized business products, Business Clout and Sprint Clarity, to Asian businesses in America that spend between $100 to $30,000 a month on telecommunications.
 "Through this agreement with Sprint, CISD can add to the substantial product line it currently offers its customers," said H.T. Jones, vice president of management consulting at CISD. "We believe Sprint and its many innovative products and services will complement the high-tech products and services that CISD currently sells to Asian businesses in Southern California and the New York area."
 Sprint is the only long distance carrier that has a nationwide, 100 percent digital fiber-optic network. The advantages of this network include the high-quality transmission of sound as well as the ability to transmit larger amounts of information.
 "CISD representatives are uniquely qualified to assist Sprint in the Asian business community," said Patti Manuel, president of Sprint's Business Services Group. "They know the market and its requirements well. CISD and Sprint have a tradition of excellence in providing service to ethnic markets and fulfilling the needs of these customers."
 Clarity, Sprint's flexible platform of services for small to mid- sized businesses, features a single pricing structure with regional and national rates, and multi-location and multi-product discounts and enhancements. Clarity helps small to mid-sized businesses manage their telecommunications better and makes big business solutions available to them.
 CISD International is headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., and has offices in New York, Toronto, Dallas, St. Louis, San Francisco and Chicago. CISD was created in 1988 to provide professional data processing support services to the U.S. marketplace, from requirements definitions through programming to maintenance documentation, and has since expanded to include outsourcing resource management, engineering and maintenance software solutions, management consulting and telecommunications.
 CISD is a subsidiary of ITOCHU (formerly known as C. ITOH), one of the world's largest multinational companies.
 Sprint is a diversified international telecommunications company with more than $10 billion in annual revenues and the United States' only nationwide all-digital, fiber-optic network.
