ECSite, a software company that provides end-to-end enterprise SaaS solutions that assist with the test, measurement and data collection of wireless network builds in the field, recently reported that it has integrated safety forms from NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association into its ECSite App.
Free to both NATE members and non-NATE members, the ECSite app automates NATE safety forms directly to the cloud. What was formally a manual process for contractors and integrators building towers and communications infrastructure, now is easily automated in the field, according to NATE.
The ECSite App is a mobile app that collects and reports on construction, installation, commissioning, maintenance, and operations of wireless infrastructure. The software automates the testing process for wireless infrastructure deployments, accelerating what was once a laborious and tiresome manual process.
“Anything that can advance NATE’s safety mission is good for our industry, and we support bringing NATE forms to ECSite’s app-based solution,” said Todd Schlekeway, president and CEO of NATE.
The forms available at launch include the NATE Equipment Basics Checklist, NATE Guy Anchor Surface Inspection, Checklist for Evaluating Qualified Contractors, Job Safety Analysis (JSA) Venue Form and Job Safety Analysis (JSA) ODAS Form. Additional forms will be added to the ECSite App later this year. ECSite’s mobile app is available for download in the Apple App or Google Play for Android stores.
“We strongly align with NATE’s mission to ‘pursue, formulate and adhere to uniform standards of safety to ensure continued well-being of tower and communications infrastructure personnel’ and believe that providing a cloud-based, automated solution for safety forms, advances our industry forward,” said Subbu Meiyappan, founder and CEO of ECSite. “Our goal is to automate everything, and this moves us another step forward.”
