The future of shift management

The Rail Industry faces some specific safety challenges when scheduling worker shifts. Shift administrators need to be able to manage hundreds of shifts quickly, automate safety calculations and engage with workers. Signal has been developed specifically to address these challenges and it replaces cumbersome, offline spreadsheets and dated systems. Signal’s key focus is safety and has been preventing danger to workers before they reach track side.

Signal provides a new, rail specific, innovative approach and user experience combined with the depth of functionality required for small, medium and large contractors and suppliers.

Our implementation strategy was ambitious from the outset. Our vision was to improve and transform our existing processes supported by Signal, using technology to sync to our multiple key internal core operating systems to ensure we reduced any potential waste and duplication of data processing. Chris and his team have supported this from day one. We’ve met many hurdles along the way, however we’ve worked closely as a team to overcome these and achieve our desired goal. A big advantage for us has been having our own Customer Success Manager from Signal, one main point of contact understanding our Murphy position throughout, and communicating challenges to the appropriate areas within Signal for timely resolve.

From initial research and demos of the system through to project delivery, we’ve always felt valued and respected. We look forward to continuously improving together.

Claire Cronin, Head of Assurance

Signal has streamlined our workforce management saving us around 50% of the time and has almost completely automated our timesheet entry allowing us to focus more on customer service and safety.
