RMS

Enterprise Asset Management for Rollingstock & Infrastructure

RMS is a comprehensive Enterprise Asset Management System used in Rail Services for facilitating the operation and management of locos, wagons and infrastructure.

Manage the entire asset lifecycle efficiently – line-side infrastructure, locomotives and wagon assets – with real-time visibility into asset performance and powerful analytics.

With RMS it’s easier to optimise asset usage, shrink costs, better manage capital expenditures, and ultimately maximise your return on assets.
