Network Rail gets real-time insights across its UK-wide network, powered by 300 military-standard tablets.

For decades, trackside examinations had been run via labour-intensive manual processes, which were both prone to human error and a drain on company time. 

But with Amey's strategic insight, Network Rail have now been able to bring their examinations into the twenty-first century.

Withstanding rain, shine and everything in-between, the army of superpowered 8" tablets give Network Rail round-the-clock updates across their network. Better still, the tablets effortlessly integrate with Network Rail's in-house apps, allowing the firm to seamlessly transition over to digital processes.
