The solution for your railway processes

SaxMS RAIL is a software solution for rail transport and offers a comprehensive system for the holistic management, planning and control of complex rail processes. It supports decision-making processes across all phases of planning and allows resource planning to be carried out in the long and medium term as well as operationally.

Orders, invoices, plans, rotations, tours, employees, locomotives and routes are depicted holistically. All important data and documents can be conveniently managed.

All Railway processes at a glance

SaxMS RAIL makes it possible to manage all data of a railway traffic operation clearly. The focus is on the digital personnel file with route knowledge, series expertise and occupational medical testing of employees. But also orders, locomotives, routes and aids can be fully managed.

In addition, SaxMS RAIL offers extensive applications for the planning and control of railway processes. For example, tours and round trips can be formed from orders in railway construction and freight transport or timetables in passenger transport, in order subsequently to derive service components for service creation. In particular, the subsequent planning of the locomotives, routes and the staff is supported by the cycle formation on the mission planning.

Absences can be submitted, confirmed and rescheduled. The work time recording of presences can be done via the smartphone or a web platform.

From order management to invoicing, SaxMS RAIL supports the complete process. In particular, a digital order platform is available for railway construction and freight traffic. For controlling, there are statistics, planning boards, lists and graphics that the planner can organize in reports.

SaxMS RAIL digitalises and thus supports the complete administration and planning process for railway companies. For even more convenience, additional modules for managing documents (CMS), incorporating smartphones (mobile) or for automated optimal plan creation (optimization).

Resources recorded correctly.
The data management system SaxMS Rail.PDM manages personnel, locomotives, routes, orders or timetables in the railway everyday life.

In particular, the focus is on the digital personnel file with knowledge of the route, series knowledge and medical examination of the staff. But also orders, locomotives, routes and aids can be fully managed.

A good plan optimizes the production process according to the goals of the company.

Absences / Attendances SaxMS Rail.ABW / Rail.AZE

Absences Rail.ABW

Scheduling holidays or responding to illness can cost both staff and planners time and nerves. With SaxMS RAIL.ABW, you can comfortably manage all failures digitally. Holidays can be submitted digitally by employees. The planner also sees all failures in his planning boards and can respond with an overview.

With machines, maintenance can be conveniently planned. Even operational failures such as diseases and machine defects can be rescheduled quickly and with clarity. With SaxMS RAIL.ABW no failures are overlooked in the planning. In addition to the planning boards, the calendar gives a holistic overview. Employees benefit from orderly and simplified digital processes, such as: For example, in the submission of sick leave, the confirmation of leave requests on top of data inspections.

SaxMS RAIL.ABW takes into account holidays, illness, training, overtime reduction, parental protection, maintenance and machine breakdowns.

Working time recording Rail.AZE

Overtime can be viewed quickly and clearly with SaxMS RAIL.AZE at any time and not just at the end of the month. Recorded overtime can be forwarded to payroll accounting, charged as vacation days, or scheduled from the overtime account. You can also see the hourly status during employee planning in planning boards.

Manual calculation errors are excluded, thus avoiding possible conflicts with the staff. The dispatcher retains control of the duty roster with SaxMS RAIL.AZE, deciding which plan deviations are accepted or questioned. The recorded working hours can be viewed per employee or as a complete overview of all employees.

Planning Rail.PEP – Personnel deployment planning
Rail.LEP – Local area planning

Use SaxMS RAIL.LEP to plan your tours and from there your routes or round trips, in order to allocate locomotives to the rounds. During operation, you can now conveniently plan maintenance and repairs for your locomotives and react operationally to breakdowns.

With SaxMS RAIL.PEP you can build your services from service components that are based on the tours and orbits, and then create a cycle plan for the staff, which takes into account all tariff restrictions. During operation, you carry out the workforce planning with this cycle plan, rolled out to the relevant calendar weeks. Conveniently, training, holidays or periods of protection can be pre-planned and operationally responsive to illnesses.

In the case of acyclic rail processes, such as railway construction, you plan without cycle plans. Incoming orders automatically enter the system via the digital customer platform or an acceptance mailbox and can then be planned holistically via the planning boards.

Create your plans clearly with planning boards (Gantt charts). When creating, you will be shown offenses such as tariff restrictions or violations of qualifications such as route or series knowledge. Vacations, maintenance and other failures are integrated into the planning boards. With the extension SaxMS RAIL.OPT you automatically generate optimal plans.
