The countdown is on until this year’s European Light Rail Congress, and we’re looking forward to networking with light rail organisations in Seville. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Light Rail: The backbone of sustainable mobility’, aiming to bring professionals together for discussions around the role of technology in creating sustainable, efficient transport.

Our Head of New Business (EMEA), Amber Hart, is delighted to be sharing insight into how Agility has supported light rail organisations around the world, on day one of the conference. Join Amber at the conference to hear more about the importance of maintenance and asset management for ensuring the sustainability and long-term viability of a light rail system, including predictive maintenance software, energy management software, scheduling and planning software and asset management systems. There will also be insight into strategic themes for light rail organisations, and we’ll be sharing some of our customer journeys with Agility.

The full agenda for the conference has been released, and we’re looking forward to getting insight into how others view the future of digital transformation and asset management, and hearing more from our partners, UKTram, about driving innovation.

We hope to see lots of familiar faces at the event, and if you have any queries about Agility, please get in touch. In the meantime, check out what some of our customers and partners have said about their Agility journey:

“Through using Agility, asset availability now runs at an average of 98% and downtime for failures has reduced from an average of 10 days to 1 day. The transition to Agility has provided Nottingham Trams with a Performance Measurement System (PMS), enabling them to automatically produce 15 reports, illustrating performance to the Council and Transport Executive. The reports include labour utilisation and completion of work to show resource usage and response times, which can influence payment from the Council. On average, Agility saves 40 hours per month in manually generating these reports.”

Chris Harper, Nottingham Trams

“We moved our control room log onto the Agility system some time ago, giving us easy access to operational information in order to make informed decisions quickly, based on up-to-the-minute intelligence. This has led to faster working practices, and a more streamlined approach throughout. Agility is also supporting us with achieve our ISO 55001 compliance, the checklists are great, and we’re able to carry out an audit very quickly as all the information we need is right there in Agility.”

Caroline Howarth, KAM

“SSG Insight worked with us to develop a MMS and Performance Reporting system. They have a talented and dedicated group of developers, with an in-depth experience and knowledge of 3P projects and payment mechanics. Of particular note, the SSG team proved to be very responsive in designing, developing and testing an interface with our major sub-contractor’s MMS system, all completed within a timeframe of just a few months. SSG have a talented and dedicated team with in-depth experience and industry knowledge.”

Glenn Hylton, RTM
