Rail networks

Improve Productivity and Asset Utilization Using Technology-Enabled Solutions

Rail networks are seeing a major uptick due to increased demand for cost-effective shipping options and greater environmental awareness about the effects of using certain ways of transportation. Rail networks, both passenger, and cargo, present some of the most complex transportation problems – integration of data flow from various systems such as trains, tracks, signaling, maintenance, stations, underground passages, and over-bridges. While many companies are able to handle these problems on a day-to-day basis, they need to do more to take advantage of growth opportunities.

Virtusa’s deep industry knowledge combined with our expertise in data and analytics helps exploit data across the network for predictive outcomes and better capacity planning. Our industry-specific leading-edge technology solutions help providers achieve maximum network efficiency and asset utilization.

  • Connected Fleet Management
    Virtusa’s connected fleet management solution integrates digital technologies such as IoT, cloud computing, and edge computing into an enterprise-class solution that uses vehicle data to deliver compelling, actionable insights for better decision making. Fuel and vehicle maintenance costs are one of the major input costs for logistics companies. Accurate prediction of vehicle availability offers better route simulation and planning, which leads to better customer service. We help reduce fleet maintenance costs, optimize fleet productivity, and monitor vehicle health for improved performance. We deploy accelerators that enhance vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication to help provide greater safety and efficiency, ultimately leading to superior customer experience.
  • Omni-channel Customer Experience
    Our omni-channel strategies help improve customer retention.  We deliver in-store personalization and sophistication by integrating digital and physical experiences. While most businesses have a clear vision to achieve digital sophistication to optimize customer experience, they lack in implementation, and technological or operational expertise. A seamless experience is the basic demand now. Due to the traditional channel-centric inventory silos, delivering a unified experience is quite challenging. With customer loyalty waning thin, immediacy, personalization, and accessibility should be your top priority.
