Software company 3Squared, provider of technological solutions to the rail industry, has launched a new virtual ‘campus’ for customers using its RailSmart technology to digitise the UK rail system.

The Sheffield-based SME will enable RailSmart customers to access a blend of training tools including eLearning modules, virtual instructor led training, micro simulation and other interactive content.

The firm, which has recently signed  contracts with HS2, Network Rail and RSSB (Rail Safety and Standards Board)  provides the industry with  software applications to help improve operational efficiency, reduce incidents, mitigate business risk and overcome complex rail challenges.

Using the new learning management system, customers will be able to create bespoke eLearning content, schedule distance based instructor led courses and include them as interactions within competency cycles and development plans.

John Hickling, Client Partnership Director at 3Squared, said: “With the Coronavirus pandemic forcing everyone to work remotely we felt it was the perfect time to launch our RailSmart Virtual Campus. 3Squared’s innovative rail products save our customers time and boost efficiencies, and the Virtual Campus ensures that clients can get up to speed with our products quickly and easily from the comfort of their own home.

“Technology is radically transforming the world of transportation and we are excited to be at the forefront of the step change across the industry, and showcasing how digital innovation can truly deliver value to rail customers across the UK.”
