In July, companies working across the rail industry were honoured for producing projects of excellence at Network Rail’s first annual Partnership Awards ceremony. The awards, which were held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, and hosted by comedian Jimmy Carr, provided Network Rail with the opportunity to recognise and reward excellence and best practice.
AMT-SYBEX won the Information Technology Award, for Network Rail’s Phase 2A Reorganisation – Changing the Infrastructure Maintenance systems to reflect the new organisation structure.
We supply the Ellipse and FDCS mobile system which are core systems supporting Work and Asset Management activity for Infrastructure Maintenance. Under Phase 2A Reorganisation, Ellipse and other connected systems had to be changed to reflect nine “route” based districts and delivery units.
This huge data migration project, requiring collaboration between all parties, was heralded a success by Network Rail Directors as it enabled the new organisation to operate from day one without any disruption to running the business.
This award recognises an organisation that has used information technology to mitigate or solve a problem that Network Rail faces or those that have used information technology to streamline processes. Judges looked for measurable results that show the benefits that this technology has created.
“Selecting the winners was tough and all our short-listed entrants should feel proud to have made it through such an impressive pool of entries. Our finalists have made a real difference to Network Rail and the millions of people who travel by rail every day.”
Iain Coucher, Chief Executive, Network Rail
