As an organisation it is important to us that our suppliers are committed to helping us achieve our objectives and 3Squared have embraced this ethos, regularly joining our competency governance meetings and inviting us to their cross-industry User Group
RailSmart EDS is extremely user friendly. It is simple to use, significantly reduces admin time for our assessors, which in turn enables us to be more productive as a Training and Competency Entity. It is widely used by other internal stakeholders who need a snapshot of competency in their area and they can navigate and pull information from the system with ease.
Our industry is highly regulated and RailSmart EDS has enabled us to demonstrate assurance with the Health and Safety Executive. Our safety certificate gives us a license to operate trains and our safety authorisation gives us a license to operate stations. I’m not sure how we would have done it without RailSmart EDS, probably lots of emails and taking them up and down the route!
Going paperless is definitely the way forward, improving the environment and our efficiencies. First and foremost, RailSmart EDS has improved our assessors time to plan and undertake in-depth technical and operational assessments whilst automatically updating and maintaining our records which is such game changer.
We have been using RailSmart EDS for the last 6 or 7 years and it has made a significant change to our business. Bringing in an electronic system, means we have a better oversight of our competency management arrangement, allows us to work with teams and provides all records in front of us on screen.
