Two Great Companies, Now Together, and Better: Md7 and Lexcom
The wireless industry is constantly changing and so is Md7.
Exponential data growth, 100% handset penetration and flattening revenues require a new network deployment model, one in which wireless operators must significantly grow network capacity at lower price points while improving reliability and delivery speed. Together, the wireless technology companies and service providers who support the operators must develop that new model.
In response to this need, Md7 continues to innovate. Since our inception in 2003, we have developed and implemented our internal tracking software, known as LiveTrack™, to manage thousands of negotiations simultaneously from our central office in San Diego. We have mastered high-volume lease negotiations and, in the process, improved the overall quality/consistency of the lease documents delivered while keeping rents down. Subsequently, riding the LTE build-out wave, Md7 also scaled zoning, permitting and site acquisition management services, completing tens-of-thousands of site modifications and new builds.
Lexcom was founded on the perspective of an industry veteran, who, after decades of building teams, managing large-scale carrier programs and working with hundreds of site acquisition firms, sought to create a better site development model. Joining with other industry veterans, they started with a simple idea that great people will do great things with the right vision, motivation and systems.
While focused on streamlining processes and eliminating inefficiencies, Lexcom also emphasized its core values-respect, trust and integrity. In just over three years, this focus and philosophy fueled growth and enabled Lexcom to become a leading site development service company in the Pacific Northwest.
With a strong focus on continuous improvement and a need for superior systems, Lexcom became an Md7 customer when it began utilizing LiveTrack™ to manage deployment projects for its customers. While working together, it became apparent that the two companies had much in common, including:
- A similar vision of the direction and coming needs of the wireless infrastructure business
- A similar desire to offer our customers a better and faster level of service at lower price points
- A common customer and employee-focused value system with a desire to be a stable, growing and innovative company in a highly competitive market
Thus, it simply made sense to combine Md7’s centralized efficiency with Lexcom’s localized know-how.
As a service provider to the wireless industry, we would like to share our insights, observations, and analysis about what is happening from time to time.
