RailComm provides dispatch system to G&W

Written by 

RailComm has been selected to provide the GCOR dispatch system for Genesee and Wyoming's Arizona Eastern Railway. RailComm's Domain Operations Controller (DOC®) train control system will be accessed through a web-enabled Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model.

RailComm's SaaS offering provides a "pay-as-you-go" model, thus eliminating capital equipment procurement constraints. Through the SaaS delivery model, the railroads can be remotely dispatched by G & W anywhere an internet connection is available. Therefore, it is possible to relocate the dispatchers to alternate locations as required.

Additionally, railroad management can log in from an office, home, or even from a hotel and directly view dispatching activity and management reports.

Since the DOC® control application resides on servers within RailComm's managed data center in Rochester, N.Y., the requirement for local IT support at each railroad is reduced.
