One of the nationʼs largest wireless carriers fast tracks a Sarbanes‐Oxley compliancy directive for multiple markets with different reporting protocols and budgetary goals. Client : A Large Wireless Company Industry : Communications Service Offering : Asset Inventory Services The Situation : A large wireless company was preparing to perform an asset inventory of its 560 cellular tower locations in the southeast region. The client is one of the nationʼs largest wireless carriers and holds a strong presence in the digital voice, data network, and mobile‐to‐mobile market. It is a leader in third generation wireless technology, using High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA), and serves more than 5 million customers nationwide. The Challenge : Because of the Sarbanes‐Oxley compliance requirements, the clientʼs asset inventory project was part of its nationwide initiative to inventory all equipment it had obtained from a previous acquisition. The inventory project was to be broken down into five different markets within the clientʼs southeast region, with each market requiring different reporting protocols. To meet the mandated compliancy directive, the clientʼs project was on a fast track to completion within a defined time frame. The project also had budgetary goals which were dependent on each market being inventoried. The client sought a partner with knowledge and experience in large‐scale asset inventory objectives, and a national and regional workforce to handle a large work area within a defined project perspective. The Response : EITACIES extensive experience in asset inventory projects of all sizes and flexible, scalable resources fit well with the clientʼs project needs. As a premier provider of technology staffing and services, EITACIES was able to customize and deliver services to help the client meet its primary project objectives. EITACIES locally recruited more than 15 experienced telecommunications professionals, which were split into teams amongst the five client markets. The project lasted approximately six months with each team averaging 5 sites per day. A EITACIES project manager systematically coordinated the teamsʼ efforts and deliverables with the clientʼs five market managers, so that each manager was aware of the teamsʼ locations at all times. EITACIES implemented a variety of quality controlled processes and a procedure to deliver the data at a high level of accuracy, so the client could be assured that the information it received was correct.
