DXC on Track with Rail Industry Digitalisation

DXC Technology told delegates at the recent SAP User Group for Railways (SUGRail) Congress in the Netherlands how it can use its global partnership with SAP to help the industry harness the power of innovation to thrive on change.

Together, DXC and SAP can manage both the front and back office environments, enabling rail operators to focus on the business, operations and customer aspects of their organisation in the knowledge that the front and back office is fully aligned and connected.

This accelerates the capabilities of the rail operator to simplify both the customer journey and the business processes, bringing greater automation and self-service across the customer touchpoints.

Speaking at the SAP event, I explained how DXC will assist rail operators on their digital transformation journeys.

There is much change going on and there are many demands from customers to be better, to do more and to get closer to them.

I outlined DXC’s vision for the rail industry and explained that digitalisation and automation is key to the strategy — but not just for the sake of automating, it must drive step change in how companies are run and how they interact with their customers.

Whether it’s lowering energy costs, improving asset utilisation or increasing throughput, there are so many factors causing rail operators to transform their organisations.

For some rail operators, the biggest challenge they face is connecting with customers along their journeys. We see this happening in every industry and the rail industry is no different.

Customer intimacy is becoming a driving force, whether it’s for building relationships or providing superior customer service.

Being able to identify the customer earlier in the journey and create a unique experience to make them keep coming back is something that DXC is collaborating on with its clients every single day.

Gathering intelligent information, then being able to make better, faster decisions is what’s behind DXC’s strategy in Connected Customer. It is all about the data. With SAP HANA and other offerings DXC can bring real innovation.

DXC’s goal is to be there helping to drive this transformation. With its industry experts and leading edge solutions, the company can help operators achieve the outcomes they desire.

Now, with its strategic partner SAP, DXC is ideally placed to enable its travel and transportation customers to truly thrive on change.
