TowerCo Unveils Web-based Tower Data Submission Feature

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Nashville, TN (September 23, 2009) — TowerCo unveiled at the PCIA show today a new feature for the TowerCo Web-based search engine. The feature — dubbed “Submit Tower Data” — provides competitors a simple way to upload multiple location tower data for inclusion in the company’s new “Tower Finder.”

TowerCo’s “Tower Finder” provides registered users the ability to quickly locate tower properties based on geographic location, state, county, city, street address, site name, site identification number or antenna structure registration (ASR) number — from the desktop or in the field.

To upload tower data, competitors will register for the site and then complete a few simple steps in the “Submit Tower Data” section found in the upper right-hand corner of the www.towerco.com website. Uploaded data will then be made available to registered website users through the “Tower Finder” database.

“Tower Finder” currently houses tower data supplied by public domain resources along with TowerCo’s proprietary data.

“This enhancement is one of many we have planned for the website in the coming months,” said Hewitt Neagle, TowerCo’s vice president of IT. “Customers told us they wanted a central location for good data, and we’re making that happen.”

The feature enhancement comes after a recent release of the company’s new mobile version of the website, providing users the chance to find nearby towers while in the field.
