I need better data

What assets are in the field?

How safe is my network?

Every network has hidden safety risks, such as rotten poles, double wood and over-taxed poles. We expose these unknown dangers and provide the clarity you need to protect your team and your community from harm and your company from expensive litigation.

What is the condition of my assets?

How Reliable is my network?

Reliability comes in many forms: service reliability, safety reliability, financial reliability. The bottom line: a network is only as reliable as its weakest link. We help you gather, analyze and act on the data that drives your assets’ performance, as well as give you the power to proactively control your maintenance and upgrade plan, rather than reacting to issues as they arise.

What third-party attachments are in the field?

Do I know all of my third party attachers?

Urgency to expand reach and complex networks growing ever more complicated creates an environment perfect for undocumented attachers—and significant loss of earned revenues. Take back control of the sometimes wild environment in the field.

What assets do I have in the field?

Before your company can grow, upgrade, or even maintain current assets, you need reliable information on your equipment.  We help you develop an inventory plan that will provide an accurate and scalable system of data collection designed to help you know what you have and what state it’s in.

I need to collect data

Is it necessary to inventory everything?

Should I have a broad or targeted inventory?

If you don’t know where you are, you can’t figure out where you’re going. Just knowing what assets you have is the most important thing. What type depends on your business goals.

Who is collecting the data?

Do I have the tools I need to best collect data?

The data you need to make informed and proactive decisions is out there. The trick is capturing it in a way that’s reliable, trustworthy, and easy to use once you’ve got  it. Nobody likes—or can use—unreliable data. Our software suite is customized to your exact needs so you’ll have all the tools you need, and none of the distractions you don’t. 

What tools do I need to collect the data?

Do I have the right people collecting data?

Inventory is everybody and nobody’s job—except when it’s ours. Because not doing it right can cost you, Alden can can assist with training or supplementing your team with expert personnel, or our team can plug into yours, collaborating to evaluate your existing capacity for data collection, or even taking it on ourselves if needed.

Do I have a good data collection process?

Does my data collection process set me up to fail?

All to often, complex inventory and data collection projects are doomed to fail because the effort itself is flawed. We see collection efforts that are under-resourced, not adequately supported by the right tool-set, or begin without a clear directive to turn collected data into action that delivers against your strategic business needs. Our team carefully shapes the collection process to reveal clarity and deliver the control you need over your network.

I need results from the data

What assets are in the field?

What is the smartest way to store data?

Once collected, your data has tremendous value. Not only in the efficiencies it creates, the revenues it reveals, and the reliability it helps you maintain, but also in the cost of the time and money built into its collection. In addition to security and redundancies, our engineers manage software upgrades and dataset updates for seamless, reliable control over your vital information.

What third-party attachments are in the field?

How can I resolve third party violations?

Our solutions help you manage the complex web of third party requests, assigning ownership and scheduling actions to turn requests into jobs well done. It can also save you money, as streamlining the process often reveals astonishing amounts of found revenue.

How can I better manage third party information flow?

Third party violations can derail network expansion, cause revenue loss and create dangerous safety issues in the field.  At the root of these violations is a complex exchange of requests, approvals, inspections and confirmations - all built on detailed contracts. Our solutions both expedite communication between all parties and control your exposure.

How do I minimize the need for an investment?

Inventories are complex and time-consuming things. Historically, as data sets age, their reliability decreases—and data you can’t trust is dangerous. By collecting each asset’s attachers, maintenance updates and contracts into a single, dynamically updated source, your inventories are continuously refreshed rather the recreated.
