Paul Ellis and his team at Liverpool Delivery Unit have been singled out for praise after submitting the millionth work order using the My Work app.
Pioneered by ORBIS (Offering the Railway Better Information Systems) and Network Rail, the app, which was delivered in summer 2014, has improved the work order management process for maintenance teams across the industry.
The mobile workforce can raise and close work orders and WAIFs (Work Arising Identification Form) whilst on track using the My Work app on their iPads.
The latest step towards a digital railway is already saving trees, reducing the paper chase and realising great efficiencies in terms of time and resources. The millionth milestone highlights both the success of My Work and the ORBIS programme.
My Work automatically updates Ellipse with complete, cancelled or re-prioritised work. The app can also verify asset data and capture condition data.
Steve Dyke, Phil Hufton and Patrick Bossert presented a special award to the team.
