Review of the year 2015

International, future-oriented, standardised.

2015 was a successful year for Rail Management Consultants GmbH: Whether developing software, consulting or continuing the internal company development, we can look back on a spectacular year.


Our consulting team was assigned exciting tasks for national and international projects in 2015. The successful implementation of the new line Erfurt – Leipzig/Halle as a part of the VDE 8 on 9th December improves the German and European railway network. RMCon participated in this challenging project, and we are proud to support the largest railway construction site in Germany with our know-how.

This year was also special for our software developers who reached a major milestone on the way to the digitalisation of the railway with version 10 of our RailSys® planning software. Our clients benefit from the new design, the workflow-oriented user interface and the software’s versatile functions that cover booking and planning processes transparently: Apart from planning departments, catenary, track and train control, RailSys® also integrates the entire business process, from the first idea to the implementation. All tasks of each planned project are considered, clearly arranged and documented to guarantee project deliveries on time. If you’re not already enjoying the benefits of our latest software developments, why not take a big step into the future in 2016 and switch to RailSys®10.

In 2015, twice the number of users were trained in our advanced training program with RailSys® compared to the previous year. Even though RailSys® can be operated intuitively, our training programs result in improved and efficient handling of all the components of our planning software and increase productivity effectively. If you would like to further educate your employees, book one of our training programs for the year 2016 or let us arrange your individual training.

ERTMS is one of the trending topics in 2015 and will remain on the railway industry’s agenda in 2016. At the ERTMS CCRCC our employees exchanged their knowledge with other experts. On the global stage, we are specialists in the standardisation of train control and management. RailSys’® modelling of ERTMS, in accordance to the specifications of the ERA, is regarded highly by infrastructure managers as well as manufacturers of control, communication and safety systems.

At the transport logistic in Munich and the Elmia Nordic Rail in Jönköping, apart from meeting our existing clients, we were excited to welcome new clients to our infrastructure management and timetable construction system, RailSys®. RMCon was also represented successfully in Melbourne, Australia at the biannual AusRAIL.Plus exhibition.

2015 saw some progressive changes in both the design of the user interface of RailSys® and the design of our website. You can now browse our website from your smartphone or tablet, providing quick and easy access on the go.

We look forward to the interesting and inspiring projects that are already on our agenda in 2016. We will change the national and international rail transport in cooperation with our clients. RailSys® will support more users planning and executing rail-bound traffic, today and in the future.

The following events are already scheduled: We will be represented at the IT Trans in Karlsruhe (1st to 3rd March) and at the InnoTrans in Berlin (20th to 23rd September). We look forward to meeting you.

We anticipate another fantastic year of innovation and successful partnerships in 2016, and the entire team of RMCon, would like to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
