Completion Year
Project Description
Siemens Mobility Limited has been awarded contracts to deliver new signalling infrastructure work within Wales, Devon and Cornwall by Transport for Wales and Network Rail respectively. This will cover the renewal and replacement of all lineside signalling equipment, with the control of the signalling being transferred to integrated control centres that will ensure the safe running of trains, improve infrastructure reliability and boost operational flexibility of the railway.
Why this tool was selected for your process
To help with some upcoming works, Siemens Mobility initially reached out to innDex as an SME local to Wales to implement a digital solution to improve their site access control and to have 24/7 availability without the need for an operative employed to occupy a desk.

Additional Information
The innDex Fatigue Management feature being used by Siemens Mobility allows shift scheduling and monitoring of operatives on site to make sure Working Hours Policies are not breached, with alerts being set out automatically when an individual’s shift is about to finish. This is all in line with the new Fatigue Risk Management Systems by Network Rail (NR/L2/OHS/003). By securely gathering the appropriate information about each operative on a project, the management team can monitor and reduce the workforce’s carbon footprint as well as individuals’ commute times, contributing to managing fatigue across projects. Site Messaging enables smoother communication, keeping everyone on and off-site connected and informed at all times. One example is that Siemens Mobility distributes safety-related information to the workforce – which can be accessed at any time, anywhere – by keeping a register of individuals who have viewed and accepted their understanding. Everything is viewable through dashboards to give project teams a holistic view of all data being collected. This results in more accurate and automated KPIs to give full transparency over what is happening on-site at any given time: for example, the number of hours on-site, home location of operatives who have been inducted in relation to the project location, and the number of first aiders within the team.
Business Impact
"innDex enables collaborative working – anything can be done. The platform is improving constantly and is affordable. We’re really happy with the system and our people on site are happy too. Although they usually don’t appreciate change, they see the value innDex brings in streamlining processes and speeding up their time to clock in and out of site, allowing them to start working sooner, get the job done quicker and go home earlier."
