Case Study

Leading rail companies select specialist cost management software

Steve Brunning, MD of RIB Software (UK), explains why the rail industry is a major success story for the firm. The production of consistent, accurate estimates is essential to ensuring that major rail projects and programmes are delivered on time, within budget and to the required quality.

When Network Rail, owner and operator of Britain's rail infrastructure, selected RIB Software (UK)'s industryleading software tool, RIB CSuite, one of its aims was to introduce a nationwide system for the consistent production and storage of estimates.

Following the roll-out of the product across Network Rail's six UK territories - Headquarters (London), Scotland (Glasgow), London North Eastern (York), London North Western (Birmingham), Western (Swindon) and South East (London) - significant cost savings are being achieved on rail infrastructure projects throughout the UK.

"RIB CSuite is a powerful, reliable and fully integrated cost management system that standardises estimating methods and provides cost data for benchmarking," explained Steve Brunning, managing director of RIB Software (UK).

"It serves all phases of a project's lifecycle - from pre-contract planning through to post-contract execution - enabling Network Rail to manage its project planning, estimating and cost management activities efficiently and effectively. Its flexibility means it can be easily tailored and customised to suit their specific requirements. Our ability to integrate with Oracle projects and P3e planning applications provides a proven, robust cost management product," added Steve.

As well as its seamless integration with project accounting, finance, project planning and risk management software, Network Rail is encouraging the use of RIB CSuite by its accredited suppliers, contractors and consultants.

One of Network Rail's key framework contractors is Birse Rail, experts in civil engineering and building work. Over the last ten years, Birse Rail has grown to become one of the rail industry's leading civil engineering contractors, delivering high profile schemes for Network Rail across the UK railway network. Birse Rail is already working with RIB Software on railway infrastructure projects throughout the UK.

Rob Offord, finance director at Birse Rail, is enjoying the benefits that RIB CSuite is bringing to his business. "We consider RIB CSuite to be an essential tool for effective cost management. It has enabled us to improve the accuracy of our cost estimates and cost models and to increase commercial controls for a range of maintenance and repair projects stretching from London to the Scottish Borders," he said.

"Our full range of technical support services ensures that RIB CSuite meets our clients' exacting needs and requirements," remarked Steve Brunning. "Our customised training plans are helping to achieve successful roll-out across all user communities."
