The team from Re-flow Field Management made their rail industry debut at the historical London Olympia, showcasing their award-winning field operations software for rail at Railtex / Infrarail
‘Re-flow’s first official foray into the rail industry’
Railtex marks Re-flow’s first official foray into the rail industry, a sector the company has been gearing up to expand into over the past several months. Much like highways, construction and other industries Re-flow serves, rail faces many of the same problems. Businesses struggling to remain efficient and profitable amidst increasing supply chain and wage inflation, lack of reliable systems to protect lone workers and siloed systems causing bottlenecks between operational processes.
With the rapid growth they’ve experienced over the past year, it became clear that the business was in the ideal position to bring the same benefits they’ve been providing their clients in construction, highways, civil engineering and landscaping to the rail sector. Thanks to industry contacts, including Eli Rees-King, head of RBDCommunity, the team has been able to do that, and they couldn’t be happier with the response they’ve received.
Aside from making new contacts, the team also reconnected with some established ones. They had the great opportunity to touch base with one of their oldest connections within the infrastructure industry, Andrew Dowding – founding director at Interchange. Re-flow first encountered Andrew during their early years at his show, Highways UK, trying to establish themselves in the highways industry. Years later, with over 80 clients in the sector including heavyweights such as Highways Traffic Management and Premier Traffic Management, it’s become clear how instrumental connections, events and face-to-face contact are to bringing digital transformation to more business in more sectors than ever before.
Utilising Re-flow in highways and civil engineering
The team also ran into one of their long-term clients, Mike Andrews, director at DWG Infraco Ltd. As a specialist ground engineering company, their team have been utilising Re-flow in highways and civil engineering, also being the first clients to trial the system in a rail setting. Re-flow’s development is driven by the feedback from its users, so working with Mike and learning from his professional industry insights has been an invaluable asset, which has allowed the development team to build an increasingly robust piece of field management software for rail.
The connections made and feedback received has made the Re-flow team all the more excited for what the rail industry holds in the future. The good news is, they won’t have to wait long. In just over a month, on the 22nd – 23rd June, Re-flow will be attending Rail Live at the Long Marston Rail Innovation Centre – the UK’s largest outdoor rail exhibition. So, get your tickets and experience first-hand how you can use Re-flow field management software to save time, gain focus, master HSE and increase profitability across your business.
