About us

We strive for better networks

Telecom Operators worldwide face important challenges: fierce competition, increasing complexity of the network, teams still relying on manual documentation (Excels, Visios and pen-and-paper). The teams of Operations and Engineering work perfectly, but often independent with different applications and different views on the same network.

Our team consists of experienced telecom and GIS engineers, with years of experience in inventory solutions. We experienced first hand that inventory solutions can slow down the operiations and engineering teams.
We decided to improve the status quo and provide the tooling to improve utility network operations and engineering. 
High quality asset information, fast insights and more productivity.
