In the five-year deal, Freightliner is investing in 3Squared’s existing RailSmart products and will collaborate closely on exclusive future RailSmart developments, with the object of putting G&W and Freightliner at the forefront of digital transformation in the UK rail industry.

 

“RailSmart will transform our UK rail business,” said Neil McNicholas, G&W Managing Director of UK/Europe Region’s Rail Services. “Outdated, time-consuming, manual practices will be replaced with the latest intuitive Cloud and mobile-based platforms to streamline processes, increase productivity and support us in delivering an improved, even more reliable service to our customers.”

 

The RailSmart suite of software will initially be rolled out in the UK, starting with the competency management system RailSmart EDS and RailSmart ORS, a Cloud and mobile-based solution for the rostering of employees. Both are planned to be in operation later this year. Subsequent modules will be delivered later this year and in the early part of 2019, driving improvements and efficiencies in other areas of the business.

 

RailSmart’s software will also interface with a number of other Freightliner systems, helping the business share information more effectively across its departments, reducing duplication and unlocking additional benefits.

 

“We are delighted to be working with G&W and the Freightliner team as the industry embarks on this monumental shift to a digital railway,” said Tim Jones, MD of 3Squared Ltd.
