We are affiliated with the programs of consultant relations (Consultants Liaison Programs) of the most important companies.

Belonging to these programs allows us, on one hand, to always be informed of the most recent developments and trends, and on the other hand, to have direct contact with the departments of engineering and support that allow us to apply the most innovative solutions in our projects and to solve quickly any incidents of high complexity that appear during the development of these projects. Other members of these Consultants Liaison Programs are:

Company culture

For 20 years we have developed a clear and differential company culture built from the following standards:

  • Independence: We work with full independence, always applying our expert know-how and understanding and avoiding any conflicts of interest with other actors in the market such as manufacturers, installers or operators of telecommunications. We only receive financial compensation from our customers.
  • International: We provide services wherever our customers need them without any geographical limit, save for locations of unrest or violence for justified purposes of company safety and security. Our working languages are English, Spanish and Catalan.
  • Intelligence: We are convinced that the success of a project begins in its conception; we consider the initial analysis, definition of objectives, design, and examination of alternatives and proposals to be critical moments in the development of a project. We like thinking, analyzing each problem and finding the best, most innovative solutions that better facilitate the relationship between cost-benefits and greater performance.
  • Collaboration and multidisciplinary and multicultural cooperation: Networking. We believe that different points of view, from different cultures and specialization areas, enrich the projects and allow us to achieve better results. We depart from less innovative approaches by keeping an open mind, looking for new solutions according to the new technological tools. As we are aware that every project has its own characteristics and that we don’t always have the specific knowledge necessary for each, we incorporate in each project the specialists needed from our wide network of partners.
  • Long-term relationships: We establish with our customers long-term relationships based on confidence and mutual benefit. We like walking and growing beside our customers. We promote continuous improvement and we like establishing reciprocity. We accompany our customers for the entire lifetimes of the systems that we design and employ together and when the appropriate time arrives, we suggest that they be renewed.
  • As a consulting boutique, we tailor our work; we adapt our services to the needs of our customers. We don’t sell packed products.
