Introduction

Signature Rail works with public transport agencies and their communities across the globe to develop and deliver smart and more effective public transit solutions.

The Brief

Signature Rail's award-winning software is specifically designed to track the increasing strain on network infrastructure organisations and rail operators, giving clients the tools to model, plan and manage the complexity of these operations with maximum efficiency.

The team came to Netsells for support in migrating a core system away from a FAT software client to move the solution towards a THIN client model and provide a modern web-based interface. 

This move also provided an opportunity to review the best technical architecture moving forward and to revisit the UI/UX of the platform, with a view to make further usability and performance improvements.

 

Head of Software & IT Signature Rail

"Netsells Group's effective project management skills result in a collaborative and smooth workflow. Their team is organized and adaptable.

The project was run more like a partnership which created a greater working relationship. The team strived to understand our priorities and what it was they where developing and why."

The Results

Discovery Phase

Our work kicked-off with a set of Discovery sprints where we worked closely with the Signature Rail team to assess the best possible solution for migration the platform. Final deliverables were then defined as a result of this initial exercise and fed back into the sprint backlog.

Web Application

The next phase of the Signature Rail platform will evolve the existing application by introducing vehicle and crew diagrams for individual trains. These new features will be delivered on a sprint-by-sprint basis in close partnership with internal product teams.

Agile Processes

Our on-going work with Signature Rail is delivered through an agile process, which allows us to deliver incremental improvements and new functionality through time-boxed sprints. The sprints are grouped into lots with clear exit milestones and deliverables, ensuring that resource and signoff can be managed with maximum efficiency.

Iterative Delivery

The next phase of the Signature Rail platform will evolve the existing application by introducing vehicle and crew diagrams for individual trains. These new features will be delivered on a sprint-by-sprint basis in close partnership with internal product teams.
