CCR Partners with Stanley Black & Decker to Support Digital Transformation in Construction

Cedar Rapids, IA 06-17-2019 — Circle Computer Resources, Inc. (CCR) is partnering with Stanley Black & Decker / DEWALT to bring turn-key connectivity to construction companies throughout North America.

This partnership couples CCR’s extensive IT services and networking expertise with one of the most trusted names in the industry for tools and equipment, delivering seamless and secure Wi-Fi networks on construction sites using the DEWALT Jobsite Wi-Fi System.

“We are thrilled to announce our newly-forged partnership with DEWALT,” says CCR CEO Shea Kelly. “Our teams have spent countless hours working together to build processes and systems that will deliver seamless connectivity across entire jobsites for our customers. The rugged AP’s and mesh networking capabilities from DEWALT have been a perfect pairing for CCR’s managed connectivity services.”

The Facts:

  • Cloud and mobile jobsite technologies continue to advance in conjunction with a growing demand for real-time data, making connectivity more critical than ever to the success of construction projects.
  • Stanley Black & Decker launched the DEWALT Jobsite Wi-Fi System to the market in 2018.
  • Early adopters of the system noted labor cost savings of approximately 2%. Having bandwidth across the jobsite frees field personnel from multiple trips back to the job trailer to log or retrieve information.

The Solution:

  • The DEWALT DCT100 access point is IP67-rated, rugged Wi-Fi distribution hardware. The system uses proprietary self-healing mesh networking technology to blanket an area in connectivity.
  • CCR’s Field Connectivity Services leverage the DEWALT Jobsite Wi-Fi System and include end-to-end management of the field network:
    • Design and engineering services
    • Solution deployment and network configuration
    • Ongoing management and reporting
    • Decommissioning of all equipment at the end of the project

“Adding the DCT100 jobsite WiFi system to CCR’s solution gives the construction industry a world’s first turnkey connectivity solution for jobsites and pre-fab shops,” says DEWALT Construction Technology Lead Tony Nicolaidis. “We are proud to be partnered with the team at CCR as we continue our journey in developing digital solutions for the construction industry.”

CCR’s end-to-end Field Connectivity managed services (Wi-Fi as-a-Service) are available now to Construction companies in the U.S. and Canada.
