Railnova Newsletter


Welcome to the first Railnova Newsletter! In this newsletter you'll find our latest updates, company news and blog articles, written by the Railnova team.

Now, what can you expect from our newsletters? We'll go far beyond the classic press releases: we strive to offer you high quality articles about what we think drives innovation in the Railway industry. We'll also offer you insight into how we work at Railnova and keep you informed about product updates. You'll only get this email once a month, but if you'd rather not receive this monthly update, please let me know by replying to this email.

Take a look at the three articles below to learn why we're excited for the London Rolling Stock Maintenance Summit, why POCs are the way to go for fleet telematics, and how to bridge the gap between asset data and maintenance management systems.

I hope you'll enjoy this newsletter (and the ones to come), and wish you all a wonderful December!

Kind regards,
