Discover how to leverage data to improve decision-making, optimize operations, and increase revenue in the rail industry.

Using Data To Become More Profitable

Data analysis isn’t just a box to tick or a new-age fad. Done correctly, it can be used to make your rail contracting business more profitable.

Use Previous Project Information For Estimates

Using data from similar projects can help you to create a more accurate estimation of project costs, requirements and outputs. Traditionally, Project and Construction Managers have used their personal experiences to inform these estimates but they are based on memory, not data. Having a verified source of truth ensures that these figures are correct, based on an amalgamation of multiple similar projects.

Activity Pricing

Analyse your typical shift outputs, cost and resource to price your works more accurately. More accurate pricing and scheduling improves project value for you and results in smoother delivery for the client.

Payment Substantiation

On-site reporting using digital shift records creates a fully auditable timeline of your work, complete with embedded photo and video. Quickly and easily substantiate all of your work and, impress your clients with timely and thorough updates.
