Austin, TX – February 19, 2016 – Accruent, the leader in assets, facilities and real estate management solutions, announced today that Wireless Infrastructure Group (WIG) has launched Accruent’s Siterra tower management software system. WIG will utilize Siterra to optimize its growing tower, distributed antenna system (DAS) and small cell operations across the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe.
“Over the last three years we’ve doubled our team to ensure we deliver across multiple 4G upgrade programmes for our MNO customers as well as support the 100 other wireless networks that use our infrastructure, “said Scott Coates, chief executive officer, WIG. “Our investment in Siterra is a further step in our efforts to be the leading infrastructure delivery partner for our customers.”
WIG is a British independent infrastructure company with 2,000 shared wireless infrastructure assets located across the United Kingdom, Netherlands and Ireland.
