Manage Crews. Reduce Incidents.
Simplify Payments.

There’s a better way to manage contract labor and equipment in the rail industry.

The Challenge
Rail asset availability is a complex, resource-intensive business.

Rail companies manage large volumes of workers doing activity-based or crew-based work – many of them remote. Ensuring proper training, licensing, and Health/Life & Safety compliance is no simple feat. Companies must also follow complex pricing structures, and properly address taxation based on location.

Add to this the need to source new skills given the digital revolution in rail with innovations such as driver-less trains, virtual ticketing agents and ticket-less travel. It’s a lot to manage.
