Home Telecom boosts fiber expansion efficiency with Render

09/ 07/ 2024

Today, Render announced that Home Telecom, one of South Carolina's largest independently owned telecom companies, has chosen our digital construction management platform to enhance efficiency and accelerate the construction of planned fiber infrastructure. By leveraging Render's platform, Home Telecom expects to more than double the fiber miles constructed each year with the same number of crews.

Home Telecom provides residential and business internet services through a fiber-rich broadband network in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties in South Carolina. ​​ Their tenacity to take advantage of all available funding opportunities has accelerated Home Telecom’s fiber expansion efforts, especially in rural communities where the cost to build fiber out is exceedingly high. In addition to rural broadband expansion efforts, Charleston's continuous growth and the development of new communities have significantly increased the demand for high-performance connectivity. With several projects being completed in tandem and with fixed deadlines, Home Telecom sought to improve the efficiency of the physical construction process.

After evaluating other construction management platforms, Home Telecom selected Render for its proven track record of project success and ability to increase field productivity and build faster than other market solutions. Render's platform offers seamless automation for the complex requirements of today’s network build and maintenance projects, and real-time visibility and insights for all stakeholders, ensuring enhanced coordination and productivity of field and project teams. 

“Manual, paper-based construction processes cannot scale in today’s marketplace,” said Bobby Armentrout, Senior Director of Network Planning and Operations at Home Telecom. “We recognized that the technology we offer to our customers cannot be the only thing that evolves, and that is where Render is a game-changer."

"Previously, we could install 150 miles of fiber per year. With Render, we’ll scale to 500 miles per year without increasing staff. This is a significant improvement of 233% in our productivity.”

Don Wadas, CRO of Render Networks, stated, “Network operators and builders nationwide are constructing broadband infrastructure that will connect and support communities for generations. Render simplifies and speeds up this process by optimizing the allocation of work and teams, making them more productive and delivering on a promise to build significantly faster."

"We’re thrilled to enable such efficiency for Home Telecom and other service providers aiming to build smarter and connect customers faster.”

To learn more about Render’s construction management platform, schedule a time to meet later this month at Fiber Connect in Nashville, TN.
