Railnova March Newsletter

I hope you're doing well and feeling energised now spring has arrived!

Over the next couple of months our team will be traveling to several countries to meet with clients and to attend events. We’d love to meet you too! See if there’s an event near you and schedule a meeting with us in advance!

At these events, but also in meetings and in the field we see that Digital Transformation is a trend you can no longer ignore. But why are a lot of companies not yet taking advantage of the opportunities it offers? Is it an impossible task, or a privilege for the lucky few? Of course not! In our most recent presentation, we show you how you can implement digital transformation.

Railnova clients, such as many private operators across Europe, DB, SNCF, and more recently NS, are well on their way to digitalise their processes. Learn more about how NS is using real-time monitoring and edge computing to prevent unforeseen events on their trains from happening and, if such an event should happen, to limit its impact on their services. Don't hesitate to contact us if you'd have any questions or if you want more information!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Dutch Railways (NS) deploys first Railnova series on BR186 to bring ERTMS under real-time control

NS trains run on a heavy used network, and any delay on the network has major implications for the operations running on it. To limit delays to a minimum NS is teaming up with Railnova: through real-time monitoring NS is able to act faster and more efficiently when a failure happens, and to analyse their train data to learn from incidents and prevent them in the future.

Digital Transformation in Rail, science fiction or reality?

In Rail many companies still rely heavily on paper and Excel files for fleet management, USB sticks and laptops for data capturing and phone calls or emails to plan for maintenance. Implementing digital transformation in fleet management and performing real-time monitoring and predictive analytics therefore might seem a bit like science fiction to some operators. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth!
