Innovative software developed by Sheffield’s Zonegreen is keeping operations at Italy’s most advanced rail depot running safely and efficiently.

Alstom has installed the rail safety specialist’s Operator Planning Suite to oversee all the daily functions at a maintenance centre looking after high speed trains on the Turin-Salerno and Rome-Venice routes, pictured. The web-based system replaces traditional whiteboards, which are still used in many depot control rooms across Europe.

Zonegreen’s Christian Fletcher said: “As changes occur they are now recorded automatically and the updates transmitted immediately, reducing the likelihood of communication failures.”
