RailComm to convert LS&I dispatching system to SaaS Model

Written by 

Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad in Michigan has been using RailComm's Domain Operations Controller train control system to dispatch their railroad since 2007. The DOC System at LS&I will soon be able to be accessed through web-enabled software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery.

SaaS provides a "pay-as-you-go" model, thus eliminating capital equipment procurement constraints. Through this delivery method, railroads can be remotely dispatched by LS&I wherever an Internet connection is available. It is now possible to relocate dispatchers to alternate locations, if the need arises. LS&I management members can log in remotely to view dispatching activities and obtain management reports.
