September 15, 2016 — Crown Castle has awarded the full scope of its Materials and Warehouse Management activities for Small Cell and Fiber deployments to KMM, which is currently providing service to Crown Castle in nine major markets and will be responsible for managing field network support inventory for all new deployment projects moving forward.
The two companies initially started a business relationship in August 2015, after Crown Castle engaged KMM to conduct a six-month materials management trial in four markets. Supported by eRIMS, a proprietary web-based inventory management tool, KMM delivered a turnkey solution that included material movement and consolidation as well as inventory and warehouse management services.
Since project inception, KMM has trained more than 400 Crown Castle employees from multiple markets on eRIMS, eRIMS Mobile, and eSOLVR, KMM’s workflow management system. KMM anticipates providing materials and warehouse management services at upwards of 30 locations across the U.S. by year-end 2016.
