RailComm awarded contract for Wisconsin & Southern's GCOR dispatch system

Written by 

RailComm has been selected to provide the Track Warrant Control system for the Wisconsin & Southern Railroad. RailComm's state-of-the-art Domain Operations Controller 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 railroad can be remotely dispatched by Wisconsin and Southern wherever an Internet connection is available. Therefore, it is possible to relocate the dispatchers to alternative 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, New York, the requirement for local IT support at each railroad is greatly reduced.
