Supporting 85% of the UK rail network
We carried out some research recently as we were curious about how much of the UK rail network we support through our training and technology solutions. We are delighted to report that we currently work with 85% of the UK’s rail network from the north of Scotland to the south of England.
Training and Consultancy is our most popular service, with The AssessTech Competence Management System (ACMS) a close second. There are currently about 50% of our ACMS customers using AssessBook and a similar number using AssessTube.
Our aim with all of the solutions we offer is to improve the safety of the UK rail network and help our customers become more informed, productive and efficient. There has been a significant increase in the usage of all our services and solutions during the Covid-19 pandemic as many of our customers have had time to consider their processes and are exploring how the technology can streamline existing ways of working.
In a recent blog, Head of Operations at GWR Stewart Player said,
“One of the areas where we are seeing the biggest impact is the use of AssessBook. It has taken over 2.5 years for GWR to ensure our drivers are fully compliant with their tablets. In 3 weeks, we have converted our safety and business brief into an online AssessBook self-learning style format and have made it really interactive by inserting content and short video clips. Where previously it would have taken 6 months to roster individuals and organise classroom training, this has been completed in 3 weeks for over 1400 drivers. Feedback has been very positive about the online learning as individuals have been able to stop, rewind, retake a module and spend more time carrying out the training. It’s definitely a better way of blended learning and is potentially an option we could consider going forward.”
We want to thank all our customers for their continued support and business and we look forward to supporting existing and new customers with their competence management needs for a long time to come.
