ADT Rail Systems, which was acquired by Transmitton in February 2005 – now part of Siemens Transportation Systems, Rail Communications group, placed a significant order for software licenses with Tascomp, developers of Prodigy SCADA software in October 2006.
ADT Rail Systems was originally formed in 2002 to supply the UK rail industry with systems for asset performance management including condition monitoring of points, level crossings, power and event monitoring.
The company drew together several businesses with a track record of supplying hardware into the rail industry but lacked suitable software to complement its product portfolio. They needed proven software with comprehensive facilities from a reliable developer able to provide on going support.
Tascomp met these requirements with their OEM software capability. A customised version of Prodigy SCADA software incorporating specialised facilities for rail applications was developed and re-branded as OnTrack.
OnTrack now allows Transmitton (A Siemens Business) to provide some unique application solutions and benefits. The recent considerable investment in modernising the UK rail industry has seen a successful period for the company with a large number of OnTrack systems being installed.
Tascomp’s OEM software service is a fast and economical way to have a ready made control and monitoring software for resale. This is an ideal solution for businesses that need software for new product lines, want to replace out dated software or are entering new markets but do not have the time or resources to develop software from scratch.
Companies interested in the OEM SCADA software service can contact us to discuss their requirements in confidence.
