The rail industry works in a highly regulated environment; and with passenger satisfaction and safety challenges at the forefront of their mind, reputation is everything. With ever-present constraints on funding, there is a requirement to provide a cost-effective, reliable service while still maintaining excellence in asset management. Sapphire has a wealth of experience working with many large rail organisations, and have developed the skills, experience and products required to set your company up for success.
Our enterprise asset management (EAM) solution helps transportation businesses maintain safe, reliable and compliant equipment and infrastructure. By housing all asset data within one unified platform, our EAM software can help organisations gain tighter control over asset performance and overall profitability. Designed for the rail industry, Infor EAM can manage both rolling stock and infrastructure assets in a single application, making use of big data analytics, IoT and predictive maintenance, making Infor EAM is a clear enabler in your asset management strategy.
Integration With Industry Software
Sapphire have developed a number of integrations with rail industry specific software including the mileage planning tool, Genius. Infor EAM has the ability to integrate will all major ERP and BI solutions. EAM can also integrate with various SCADA and BIM systems, making it the perfect fit for rail companies looking to amalgamate their data in one solution.
By providing all asset data within one solution you can easily manage compliance objectives and KPI’s. The sophisticated reporting tools allow you to meet national and international regulatory measures, keeping an audit trail of all user activity through one system with built in time stamps.
With one solution in place, you can improve your operational insight into asset performance and labour productivity, enabling you to manage your workforce and transportation assets more effectively. By automatically analysing data that’s collected, our solutions can highlight any inefficiencies, and allow you to allocate resource accordingly. Manage work orders and service requests in a timely manner, ensuring your maintenance activities are completed promptly. Improved operational visibility allows you to minimise disruption to your core infrastructure while performing maintenance activities.
Our asset management system enables you to integrate incident reporting with work management and promote a safety culture within your organisation. Simple recording of incidents, near misses and risks allows you to escalate and resolve safety issues quickly. By collecting all data in one central location you can predict potential failure in vehicles, equipment, stations and facilities and mitigate the risk to both clients and employees by maintaining the asset appropriately.

In any asset intensive industry, equipment downtime and poorly performing assets can have a significant impact on an organisation’s bottom line. The maintenance of these assets is not only important from a productivity point of view, but also because of the significant health and safety implications of any failure. When you consider how the negative performance of your assets could also impact on customer satisfaction, there are plenty of reasons to invest in asset management solutions.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems enable businesses to make effective and informed decisions, increase productivity, and grow profitability.
This is because an ERP business management solution is a single, integrated software platform designed to consolidate information across the entire business – including financials, sales, customer relationship management (CRM), stock and operations.
Business intelligence (BI) is a concept that’s becoming increasingly important and popular across all business sectors, and can benefit your organisation both now and into the future.
Ultimately, BI converts raw data into meaningful information, providing valuable business insights in order to improve decision making.
