RailPros’ Administrative Information and Logistics System (RAILS)
RailPros has developed its RAILS website, which continues to expand and evolve to meet customers’ needs. The site generates job numbers for each customer project for reference in the RAILS system and stores documents online with easy access for viewing. All billing information is also available in the system for invoicing and other accounting functions. Every update made to a record is timestamped. RailPros continues to update this system and make changes to better serve our customers and all their needs. RAILS also gives us the ability to generate reports for all flagging jobs in the system, including Daily Work Reports (DWR), schedules, field audits, and billing. Our RAILS customer portal gives you access to set up your account and fill out all information online in the RAILS system to initiate flagging for an upcoming job, then tracks the steps and schedule of each future project.
On-Track Supplemental Safety App for Improved Flagging Safety
RailPros’ RWICs use a proprietary app called “On-Track Supplemental Safety (OTSS)” to prevent safety incidents from occurring, such as misplaced flags or flags being left on the right of way, misplaced switch locks, and derails, and also allows Lone Workers to report on and off duty. We understand the complexity of the RWIC’s duties and continue to create more proficient tools and technology to enhance safety and streamline these flagging duties. The OTSS app adds an additional level of roadway worker protection for RailPros employees in the field.
OTSS is also a powerful “no-touch” job briefing tool that digitizes the job briefing process and keeps employees safer in the current COVID-19 landscape. The use of this feature eliminates the need to utilize a pass-around sign-in sheet. Instead, workers can scan a QR code generated by our RWIC, which takes them to a secure, military-encrypted, custom site where they enter their name and number and acknowledge the briefing given to them. Each person that acknowledges the briefing will receive a digital copy that can be referenced in a safe place throughout the day. As activities on the job site change, the briefing is updated with the group and acknowledged.
