Berkshire, UK - 08 May 2008 – Tarantula, a UK-based niche product software innovator specialising in the mobile telecom space, today announced the launch of its new enterprise product (site-share.com). With an excellent understanding of the telecom sector, Tarantula has extensive experience in developing, managing, and delivering innovative applications and services.
The Tarantula platform (Site-Share.com) is the company’s proven and trusted flagship software service used by the entire mobile industry in the UK for the past 6 years. Tarantula has developed the platform for the UK telecom industry to manage a marketing B2B application service for the cellular infrastructure sharing process.
This unique web-based application facilitates managing, tracking, reporting and collaboration on infrastructure-sharing across the mobile industry, including network operators, 3rd party roll-out agencies and cellular site providers. All the cellular telecom majors in the UK – including Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, O2, H3G, O2 Airwave, National Grid Wireless, Arqiva, and SSE, are using the Tarantula platform for the past 5 years.
With the enterprise product, Tarantula aims to replicate the industry success on the enterprise level, where an enterprise can manage, track and report on the site-sharing processes internally on the organisational level, including SLA management.
With this launch, Site-Share.com is now available in three configurations – the Enterprise, the Business Partner and the Co-Location. Moreover, there are application services such as the Site Finder and Site-Share Financials that can function independently as well as part of the Site-Share.com product itself, so customers can choose the version that’s the best fit for them.
Tarantula has a unique insight into the site-sharing scenario in the UK, which is considered one of the most mature mobile telecom markets in the world. Having continually worked since 2001 with the mobile phone operators and network infrastructure providers, the company has a deep understanding of the drivers, performance issues around sharing, and the need for transparency of the share process.
Tarantula’s unique objective perspective has lent itself to an amazing collaboration and partnership between, what are traditionally ‘fierce’ competitors on the revolutionary Tarantula platform. The company’s focus is on providing an independent and trusted software service while working in partnership with the entire UK mobile industry to continually develop and enhance the cellular site sharing service as well as to provide a richer, more productive, process-oriented toolset for site and infrastructure sharing.
