Railway ERP class platform

RAILSOFT has been created by a team of Petrosoft.pl experts, ensuring work optimization in the full range of railway processes. The system was built on the basis of over 22 years of experience and expectations of our clients and has been constantly developed for the last 14 years in the light of the latest requirements posed by the railway market.

A team of several dozen analysts, architects and programmers are all the time working to ensure that RAILSOFT always offers the most up-to-date solutions in the field of planning, implementation, supervision and analysis of business processes: maintenance and operation of railway vehicles, maintenance and operation of railway infrastructure, supervision of employees’ competences, supervision of railway documentation , logistics and rail traffic. The system also supports reporting to railway offices and perfectly integrates with various ERP systems, GPS systems, DBNetz infrastructure, rolling stock auditor software and others. The combination of mobile technologies and IOT allows railway companies to supervise processes in the field in real time, both related to human work and the proper operation of machines, devices and vehicles.

The implementation of the system eliminates the need to use additional IT tools, from Excel to other non-integrated programs. RAILSOFT supports virtually all processes in a railway company: from inquiries, offers, contracts, orders, planning and dispatching, workshops, sidings, rental and lease, settlement of costs and profitability, to issuing an invoice.

  • Entity in charge of maintenance
  • Rolling stock producers
  • Locomotive rental and leasing company
  • Wagon rental company
