Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn selects RailOpt 5.0

The year 2015 has already been very positive for Qnamic: For one, numerous train operators implemented our RailOpt system and we were able to prove our our employees’ skills by supporting train operators in successful franchise bids. To top it off, the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, via a detailed tender process, objectively determined that RailOpt best fulfils the complex requirements of a modern railway operation. The process included the measurement and comparison of the software’s functionality, price structure, and the skills of the implementation partner. Dr. Claudia Schmid, CEO of Qnamic, says: “We are proud to count another prominent Swiss railway, the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, to the circle of RailOpt users: This is a clear sign that RailOpt continues to be the leading product for railway resource management. We are looking forward to working together!”

MEV Uses RailOpt WEB

MEV Switzerland has experienced the benefits of RailOpt since 2008 - now the communication between dispatchers and locomotive drivers will be improved with RailOpt WEB. The implementation of the product will significantly reduce the administrative effort in communication between planners and drivers: For example, logging into and ending shifts will become automated, the administration of shift requests simplified and online point-based vacation planning will be introduced. RailOpt WEB enables the driver to view the latest service plans, enter updates and shift requests. “RailOpt WEB gives our dispatchers time to focus on their actual task,” says Matthias Löser (MEV Switzerland), “the dispatching of personnel. By providing all the relevant data, RailOpt WEB reduces the necessity to constantly use the telephone, which increases concentration and efficacy."
