Using the Tarantula tools has helped us reduce deployment lead time by 2/3, resulting in increase in revenue as well as lowering of operational costs, especially in Norway, with the group winning awards for project delivery efficiency.
KIN Towers has partnered with Tarantula to support its growing tower base in Indonesia. We are excited about harnessing the power of Red Cube to manage both the build-out and acquisition of towers and to improve our asset lease setup. This product will help us implement industry-standard business processes while providing us the flexibility to drive our specific business initiatives.
When our business grew exponentially during 2007 – 2010, we sought out an online platform to deploy key business processes rapidly, that would scale as our portfolio expanded and our business complexity grew. That’s why we chose Tarantula’s siteshare.com platform. Since its implementation, this online platform has enabled us to manage our tower builds and a range of other operations and business functions. The Tarantula platform has also given us the ability to implement a ‘single-source’ of centralised data that we can securely access anytime from anywhere.
As we grow our business across multiple countries, we need a product that retains the granularity of site-level data and delivers robust, enterprise-grade information. We trust Tarantula for its ability to handle core processes that bring together the commercial and physical aspects of tower businesses into a consolidated management platform. Red Cube’s capability of reporting at country level, as well as at group level added value to edotco Group’s multi-country business operations.
Rollout of the Nodnett network in Norway is a mission-critical project to provide a voice and data communications network for nationwide public safety. Based on the unique TETRA infrastructure platform and managed through our Network Operation Centre (NOC), the Nodnett network is being rolled out across more than 2000 sites. We needed a project planning mechanism that would help us in speedy rollout, automate multiple process steps, and simplify the management of a vast amount of project documents. The Tarantula platform provided the perfect business solution for our management team to view a centralised ‘single version of truth’ and ensure that critical SLAs were met in a timely fashion. With the Tarantula system managing our ever-expanding knowledge base and a workflow-enabled system to support standardized business processes, we did not need to worry about data loss and could focus on optimizing our network rollout. Moreover, the operations module from the Tarantula framework will give us an additional edge to ensure that our asset infrastructure provides uninterrupted support for the Nodnett network.

Site-share.com has been an important enabler in our growth as the largest independent tower company in the country.
