ENSCO Rail has received a contract to provide a paperless track inspection solution to Genesee & Wyoming Railroad Services (G&W).

The ENSCO product, the Digital Track Notebook®, will provide track inspectors at G&W-owned railroads, with a web-based application to conduct track inspections electronically. The web application features include the ability to automatically schedule inspections based on federal and railroad specific schedule requirements, to log inspections and defects electronically, and to create inspection reports for the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and Transport Canada. Additionally, the application allows upper management to create and review performance reports.

"A paperless work environment is definitely the direction the industry is going, and we are excited to be a leader in it," said Boris Nejikovsky, ENSCO President. For more than 45 years, ENSCO has been a leading provider of railway safety technologies throughout the world. ENSCO is committed to the delivery and support of new solutions to improve rail safety and performance, and is the industry’s premier source for track inspection, vehicle / track interaction consulting, railroad safety and security, as well as railroad asset management technology.
