Salzburg AG

In addition to the areas of energy and communications, Salzburg AG also ensures the necessary mobility in urban and regional transport with its local railroads and trolleybuses. The maintenance and upkeep of the vehicles and the infrastructure are also part of the company‘s responsibility. For this, the company relies on the public transport solution of Boom Software AG – a solution that focuses on vehicles, workshop and infrastructure.

Moving away from stand-alone solutions towards a complete solution

The Salzburg AG‘s goal is to increase user-friendliness and process orientation by means of an end-to-end software solution. Until now, needs were covered by individual partial solutions, which contributed to a very heterogeneous system landscape and made central control difficult.

Salzburg AG therefore set out to implement a standard software solution for the maintenance and repair of vehicles and infrastructure, which includes links to existing systems such as SAP as well as to other systems such as personnel management. In addition, special solutions are available for reporting by vehicle drivers or specific services that report various conditions via sensors.

Established standard product for rail and public transport

The Salzburg AG recognized in Boom Software AG a strategic partner that not only had the necessary industry know-how, but also an established product that covers the needs of the public transport industry. This and the possibility to add individual customizations, as well as the ongoing product enhancements, strengthened the image to receive a solution for the current requirements as well as to be able to quickly provide answers for future requirements.

Combined with the corresponding consulting competence for decisions on implementation, the possibility to use a support service for the ongoing operation and the many years of experience in the rail and public transport sector, this led to the decision to enter into a partnership that is to move far beyond the initial project along a roadmap.

The shortage of skilled workers has been a serious challenge for rail vehicle workshops for years. Workshops have the ambition to achieve the highest possible utilisation of capacity and at the same time ensure the highest possible level of quality in the work carried out on the rail vehicle. However, the lack of well-trained skilled workers makes it difficult to implement the ECM2 process specifications.
