The telecom industry is at an inflection point. As our communities become more connected, the volume, velocity, and variety of telecom-related infrastructure projects are exponentially increasing. So, what are successful telecom companies doing right now to meet this influx of new projects?
Leaders are adopting purpose-built software to effectively plan, deploy, maintain, and grow the value of their project portfolios. In order to keep pace with the rate of innovation and increasing connectivity, successful companies are improving their operations with technology built for the management of site-based, repeatable projects.
Enter Sitetracker, a telecommunications-specific project management solution. Created by project managers, it’s the world’s first full-lifecycle platform for managing high-volume distributed capital projects and assets, increasing ROI, and driving operational excellence. Innovators in telecommunications such as Verizon, Tilson, and SAC Wireless (Nokia) rely on Sitetracker to manage over $12 billion in capital assets.
According to Giuseppe Incitti, CEO of Sitetracker, the platform is transforming their customers’ businesses. “With shrinking margins, fewer boots on the ground, and more work coming down the pipe than ever before, it’s imperative that our customers deploy their assets in the most optimal way. Otherwise, visibility into every task and variable can become impossible,” said Incitti. “With Sitetracker, our customers get live, cross-functional, consolidated project updates and as a result are able to accurately deploy and maintain their assets. Teams see real-time inputs flowing between internal and external project groups, 24/7. This means decisions are made with confidence and as a result, reach unparalleled levels of operational efficiency.”
Sitetracker says they’re preparing their customers for the next revolution in telecom — 5G. Their platform is designed for the process-intensive deployment of small cells and network densification. “We don’t want anyone to have to reinvent the wheel for every project,” said Incitti. “As a result, our customers are, in some instances, seeing over 300 percent improvements in time from permitting to close out.”
With average platform utilization at over 90 percent from tens of thousands of users, Sitetracker has become a trusted partner to their customers. “We all know that garbage data in means garbage data out,” said Tim May, Sitetracker CTO. “So, we are always working to ensure our platform is not only functional but delivering value every day.”
The company constantly has an ear to the ground, listening to customer feedback and improving the platform to meet their needs. For example, Sitetracker built native iOS and Android mobile apps to provide value for remote employees and field technicians.
“Our mission says it all,” says Incitti, “We’re here to empower project managers and their teams to build the future faster. Sitetracker is scalable and delivers outstanding efficiency for companies of any size. By choosing Sitetracker, you’re choosing operational excellence.”
Sitetracker has locations in Montclair, NJ, Palo Alto, CA, and NYC. For more information or to schedule a live demo, visit www.sitetracker.com.
