KCS Selects RMI's RailDOCS® for Signal and Communication Asset Management

Atlanta, GA ­ December 20, 2010 -- RMI, the largest independent provider of comprehensive rail information services to the transportation industry, today announced The Kansas City Southern Railway Company (KCS) has chosen RMI's Railway Daily Operations Control Systems (RailDOCS) to manage monthly FRA compliance and preventive maintenance for signal and communication assets. RailDOCS is an integrated suite of business systems that tracks and manages all design, operation, and maintenance data for signal and communication assets. RailDOCS replaces traditional project management tools - spreadsheets, phone calls, and email ­ with a single, integrated web-based application and mobile connectivity to help managers easily navigate vast amounts of data and support real time decisions. The RailDOCS mobile application is an industry leading feature which allows asset maintainers in the field to complete and record all inspection, maintenance, and compliance requirements on location. RailDOCS integrates the latest FRA rules and regulations with company policies for asset management and maintenance to ensure signal and communication devices are always in compliance. With the signing of a five-year license agreement, KCS will deploy two of the primary RailDOCS modules: Test & Inspection System for maintenance management of fixed signal and communication assets and Configuration Management System for management of component guidelines and enhancements. Martin Paget, RMI Vice President for RailDOCS, said "We are delighted to have been selected by KCS as their provider for preventive maintenance management and FRA compliance. KCS' confidence in RMI is very gratifying and we look forward to their success with RailDOCS, particularly as they deploy Positive Train Control across their network." "RMI's RailDOCS is a feature-rich, robust system that provides KCS the ability to empower asset maintainers in the field with a mobile application to manage data collection on location. The fact that RailDOCS goes into the field with the asset maintainer ensures our data is timely and accurate." said Rick Stones, AVP Advanced Systems Planning. RMI Business Services will lead the RailDOCS implementation for KCS and activate more than 85 field engineers and management users. Kirk Knauff, RMI Vice President Marketing and Services, added "KCS is a valued partner of RMI and we are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to deliver RailDOCS and provide solutions for effective signal and communication asset management."
