"This marks the first time as a company we’ve been able to support the short line rail space with proven, Class I derived tools."
Louiseville, CO (PRWEB) April 10, 2018
PS Technology (PST) and Rio Grande Pacific Dispatch are pleased to announce the first implementation of CrewPro Short Line, a cloud-hosted and subscription-based railroad crew management system.
Leveraging the latest technological advances in architecture, design and construction, this system will provide a subscription-based, dynamic and flexible platform for Crew Scheduling. In addition to handling Hours of Service (HOS) requirements, the system also handles tie-up, work-list/pool management, seniority move bumps, FRA certification requirements and more.
Rio Grande Pacific Dispatch, the third-party dispatching arm of short line holding company Rio Grande Pacific Corporation (RGP), will utilize PST’s CrewPro Short Line™ to manage crew calling for the multiple railroads it serves. The system will vastly improve cost savings and accuracy while preventing errors prone to legacy methods used by many short line railroads.
“We are extremely pleased to be working with such a well-respected leader in the short line arena,” says PST President, Seenu Chundru. “RGP immediately saw the benefits and implications of using a cloud-based, modern crew management system,” he continued. “This marks the first time as a company we’ve been able to support the short line rail space with proven, Class I derived tools. A Cloud-hosted solution will be transformational for the short line railroad Crew environment.”
Both companies have chosen to leverage their long-standing relationship and industry best practices to develop an unparalleled service solution.
