Railways are high-risk, asset-intensive environments that require the seamless integration of staff, equipment, technology and processes.
Already under pressure to reduce operational costs whilst increasing service levels, railway managers are not spared the tough decisions confronting any other line of business: prioritising investment decisions, extending asset life-cycles and finding extra cost savings.
This is where we help. We understand the pressures faced in the boardrooms because our strategic advice is often called upon at the highest levels of the industry.
But we also know the challenges that concern those on the 'frontline' — the technicians, engineers and asset managers — because we frequently help resolve their problems too.
Most importantly, we understand the mutual dependence between the strategic and operational sides of the railway, and the risks exposed when they are in conflict.
From small local operators to international manufacturers we help organizations across the rail sector raise standards, maximize efficiency and navigate complex technical, commercial and regulatory demands.
