Just before the kickoff to Memorial Day weekend, telecommunications giant, Sprint Corporation’s S  insiders went on buying spree, buying up shares of stock in the company.

Combined, these Sprint Corporation’s S  insiders purchased over 1,133,700 shares valued over $5.8 Million. President & CFO, Michel Combes lead all insiders buying 448,833 shares.

Sprint Corporation’s S  has a 52-week high of $ 9.02 and a low of $ 4.81. The company has been making positive headlines lately with recent developments such as The supply chain digitization software, Scopeworker®, announcing that it will partner with Sprint to help digitize the company's multi-billion-dollar supply chain.

Following successful trials in which double-digit percentage savings for Sprint's procurement department were consistently generated, Scopeworker will engage in multiple programs to automate cost, time and quality efficiencies. The Sprint programs are major, multi-year investments that will dramatically improve its network coverage, reliability and speed.

"We chose Scopeworker's platform because it's disrupting the supply chain and changing the way carriers build and operate networks," stated Cyril Pourrat, Sprint's Vice President of Procurement and Supply Chain. "The platform allows our Network team to have full visibility to all field-based transactions and track metrics, including cost savings.”

According to industry studies, Scopeworker's digitized marketplace automates procurement savings of up to 30% and increases workforce productivity by up to 30%.  Stakeholders engage A.I. Analytics for end-to-end transparency of budget, productivity and real-time management by exception. External systems including ERPs, databases and IoT devices are aggregated and their engagement automated.

Sprint's Chief Procurement Officer, Mariano Legaz, stated "As we prepare to deliver the nation's first 5G mobile network in the first half of 2019, the Scopeworker system will help ensure Sprint receives the best, market-based pricing for construction services.”

Also, Sprint S  Magic Box, the world's first all-wireless small cell, which improves data coverage and increases download and upload speeds on average by 200 percent, received two new awards this week.

The Small Cell Awards Excellence in Commercial Deployment (residential) in conjunction with AirSpan. The award was given on behalf of the Small Cell Forum whose mission is to drive the wide-scale adoption of small cells. The award recognized Sprint for demonstrating that it developed and deployed a capability to customers which provides demonstrable cost savings, ease of use, and quality of service improvements.

The other, the 2018 Enterprise Wireless Network Innovation Product of the Year from Compass Intelligence. The global consulting and market analytics company recognizes products and companies that have made outstanding contributions in innovation, technology advancement, and have contributed a positive impact to the overall technology industry.

"Our breakthrough Sprint Magic Box technology continues to be recognized for its innovation, ease of deployment and cost-efficiency in expanding and improving LTE coverage indoors," said John Saw, chief technology officer at Sprint. "Magic Box is another important way that we've made the Sprint Network experience better for our customers.”

"We are honored to be recognized with this award from Compass Intelligence," said Jan Geldmacher, president of Sprint Business. "Sprint Magic Box is not only an important part of our Next-Gen Network build-out, it helps us remain at the forefront of innovation for business networks as we help our customers run their business better every day."
