We have an excellent track record of meeting and often surpassing the needs of our clients in the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. For 15 years, we have consistently provided our clients with innovative services that have enabled them to improve their operational efficiency, and protect and expand their bottom line. Our projects are delivered with local resources that are coupled with global support. Our five main core services are:

Telecom Engineering

We know that every minute the network is down is a minute in which revenue is lost. Hence, our primary goal is to ensure our clients are able to maximize their return on investment in the network assets deployed. To this end, we leverage our global experience to secure quick wins to put any project we work on significantly ahead.

GIS

GIS provides advanced location intelligence capabilities by building geographic and business relationships. Trends, patterns and dependencies are mapped, turning subscriber data, marketing activities, and data traffic areas into valuable knowledge that can translate to competitive advantage. GIS would supports the whole life cycle of the network from planning to field support to provisioning and defining, and also supports sales and marketing programs.

Data Conversion

Standardizing data into a single digital format in a GIS database makes data easier to retrieve and manipulate for quick business and spatial analysis to support decision-making. The accuracy and relevancy of the database can be updated and maintained in real-time or via batch-processing. Different cartographic formats can be easily produced for different usage.

Right Sourcing

We are well suited for telecom, cable TV and utility operators that put quality first. We employ an advance IT infrastructure, housed in a secured world-class facility, but our low cost structure enables us to offer our clients competitive prices. We aim for cost-effecive results that operate efficiently to enable rapidly response to stakeholder demand. Services are provided long-term off-shore or short term on-shore or a combination of both.

Apps Development
