The OpenAsset Loc8tor is a project led by West Sussex County Council in partnership with neutral host Freshwave, leading software provider Metricell, together with Adur and Worthing Councils, Arun District Council, Chichester District Council, Crawley Borough Council, Horsham District Council and Mid-Sussex District Council.

“We are delighted to be involved with the new digital asset management platform pilot,” said Tom Staniland, Metricell’s Managing Director. “Working alongside West Sussex County Council on this digital innovation is not only exciting, but really important to us and our core ethos of being better connected within our local communities.”

The much-anticipated platform will collate, index and visualise all available public sector asset data, market them to Mobile Network Operators and, ultimately automate the site acquisition process, therefore helping to accelerate commercial investment and help improve coverage in poorly served areas.
