Railway Engineers Building Their Own Railway Data Solutions

We coordinate work across many geographical locations providing web-based solutions exclusively for the railway industry.

  • Our rolling stock workflow solutions ensure that tasks are only signed off by users with the required competence (e.g. vehicle and bogie overhaul, arising work, maintenance, heavy equipment overhaul, production planning, vehicle testing and rail incident safety management).
  • Our auditing solutions speed up any inspection process (e.g. service hand over inspections, inspection of new trains into the fleet and redelivery inspections when trains pass from one train operating company (TOC) to the next).
  • As railway engineers our wraps provide expert knowledge to the production team (e.g. calculate suspension settings to optimise derailment stability for high speed trains and bolt failure diagnostic tools).

The video explains the traditional difficulties in compiling paper documentation packages in a production environment and how customers now collect and share production information in the cloud using ExcelWraps. It shows how the technology has been adopted on the shop floor and they tell us exactly what they think of it.


We deliver solutions for the railway industry

We meet the specific requirements of fleet owners (ROSCOs), TOCs, vehicle manufacturers, maintainers, overhaulers and equipment suppliers.

  • As we only work for railway companies our solutions follow industry best practises and satisfy all railway regulatory and compliance requirements.
  • Our client services team are railway engineers who talk to our railway clients to ensure that nothing gets ‘lost in translation’ to the software development team.
  • We are an adept software development company but uniquely we are led by senior railway engineers to provide a sharp focus to deliver solutions for the railway industry.

Our wrap solutions now touch over 54% of all cars in the UK railway network. Because our solutions reach out over the Internet into partner organisations, all UK vehicle leasing companies already connect with wrap solutions. Similarly, wrap solutions already extend into most train operating companies in the UK.
