Conrail to Transform Paper Rulebooks with Comply365’s Content Management System & Mobile App

Train Crews to Have Instant, Easy Access to Critical Content

Beloit, WI – JAN. 24, 2023 – Cloud-hosted software provider Comply365 is pleased to announce its continued transformation of the rail industry with its newest partner, Conrail, which will convert its large “grips” of paper rulebooks into a more efficient operation with Comply365’s content management system and mobile app for train crews.

Comply365’s solution will enable Conrail to better enhance safety and compliance – and provide new efficiencies as train crews leave large paper manuals behind, and access all their critical documents with easy searching on a tablet.

Class 1 railroads CSX and Norfolk Southern jointly own Conrail, which as a local service provider ensures customers’ freight shipments are safely and efficiently moved between their rail sidings and the long-distance freight trains operated by CSX and Norfolk Southern.

“We needed an innovative system that would keep our rulebooks consistent across our network and make it easy for our crews to access the information they need to do their jobs safely and efficiently,” said Brian Simon, Manager of Safety at Conrail. “The experience and value Comply365 bring will make it a smooth transition for our administrators to begin electronic document delivery and an intuitive experience for our mobile end users.”

Thanks to Comply365’s expansive customer community of rail users and the use of APIs, Conrail plans to easily tap into rulebooks, bringing operational efficiencies for Conrail.

Comply365, whose customers include many of the major airlines across the globe, is leading a digital transformation in the rail industry, much like it did in aviation a decade ago. Comply365’s rail division includes several Class 1 freight customers, as well as passenger and commuter rail operators across North America.

Conrail’s project will digitize rulebooks, bulletins, special instructions, and other mission-critical documents that train conductors, engineers and other operational personnel must carry to safely operate across the rail system. The effort provides savings in printing and distribution costs, and also allows them to deliver personalized and targeted content to specific crews or departments with alerts and push notifications, as well as compliance tracking.

End users will be able to quickly search and filter across all their documents in an easy-to-use app, and bookmark and annotate important documents – online or offline.

“We are happy to welcome Conrail into our rail community that continues to grow, and we’re excited for them to realize the benefits of digitizing their operational content and processes,” Comply365 CEO Tom Samuel said. “The efficiencies they’ll gain from having an operational content management platform that captures compliance is transformative.”

Comply365 is the leading provider of enterprise SaaS and mobile solutions for content management and document distribution in highly regulated industries including aviation, rail, and energy. Comply365 supports the world’s most mobile and remote workforces with targeted and personalized delivery of job-critical data that enables safe, efficient, and compliant operations. Every day, hundreds of thousands of pilots, flight attendants, maintenance technicians, rail conductors and engineers, and energy workers rely on Comply365 for digital delivery of operational (OEM and company) manuals. Having played an instrumental role in the FAA’s approval of replacing the traditional, paper-based, pilot flight bags with electronic flight bags (EFBs), Comply365 partners with clients to transform their industries.
