Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis (TRRA) has contracted with CloudMoyo for the company’s Operational Testing System (OTS), which will be deployed across the entire railroad for safety and regulatory compliance.

The cloud-based OTS is described as “a foundational component of the CloudMoyo Rail Transportation Management (CRTM) solution suite, which harnesses the power of advanced analytics to intelligently create configurable master test plans and allows rapid operational testing in the field utilizing mobile devices.”

CloudMoyo OTS, integrated with other enterprise applications including Oracle HCM and Microsoft Active Directory File Server (ADFS), “provides a single unified platform for all safety and operational testing, radically enhancing safety and efficiency of rail operations,” CloudMoyo Co-Founder and CEO Manish Kedia said. “CloudMoyo OTS allows supervisors to get a complete picture of the progress and status of operational testing using embedded dashboards in the OTS app.”

“As our business grows, we are looking to scale our operational capabilities with modern, cloud-based digital technologies,” said TRRA President Mike McCarthy. “Safety is our top priority. With CloudMoyo OTS for short line railroads, our responses to new regulations and our implementation of new safety measures will be more streamlined and timelier. We can directly import multiple rules libraries such as GCOR, MOW, SSI, Haz-Mat, Train Ride and Efficiencies, configure them to our needs, and roll out new test execution programs almost immediately. We expect enhanced agility of the new system along with a seamless user experience on mobile devices to clearly improve the productivity of our workforce by more than 30%.”

“TRRA is the vital link for Class I railroad interchange in the St. Louis region, besides serving the top industrial customers in the region,” said Kedia. “We are excited to be the partner of choice for delivering the next generation OTS solution for TRRA, helping to ensure adherence to operating rules and promote a safety-first culture.”

TRRA is a Class III railroad serving 80 industrial customers in the St. Louis region and providing interchange services to six Class I railroads The TRRA currently operates six subdivisions: Merchants, Illinois Transfer, MacArthur Bridge, North Belt, West Belt, and Eads. These lines interchange with BNSF, Union Pacific, CSX, Norfolk Southern, CN and Kansas City Southern.

Headquartered in Bellevue, Wash., with offices in Kansas City, Mo., and an R&D center in Pune, India, CloudMoyo is a developer of cloud-based, AI (artificial intelligence)-driven products and solutions. The company says its railroad industry domain experience with Class I’s and short lines “makes us an ideal partner for the railroads’ digital transformation journey. CloudMoyo is poised to help intelligent enterprises build innovative solutions and leverage the power of data-driven insights.”

Kansas City Southern recently completed deployment of CloudMoyo technology.
