Digital track warrant

Ensuring the safety and productivity of remote crews.

Enhancing voice-based systems

This digital authorization system leverages the full capabilities of RailComm’s DOC® platform. This ensures it provides greater efficiency to your existing voice-based system.

RailComm's graphically driven mainline Computer-Aided Dispatching (CAD) solution removes the risk of human error by enforcing a consistent rule set and assisting dispatchers in issuing safe train movement authorities. It also integrates resource planning to keep moving your trains efficiently.

Huge cost-saving benefits

Digital Track Warrant gives work crews an alternative to that time-consuming task of dialing dispatchers. Instead of waiting on hold until they are available, your team can request and issue track warrants digitally. Consequently, this adds work capacity equivalent to thousands of dollars a year.
