The National Operating Centre (NOC) plays a critical role in contingency planning and resolving incidents, working 24/7 to keep train services running.
At no time is it more important to minimise disruption than during essential Bank Holiday works.The planning and preparation has to be meticulous, involving extensive liaison with 3rd parties such as DfT, BTP and ORR as well as route teams and control centres nationwide.
Weather forecasts and planned events such as football matches or large concerts are considered alongside engineering works to improve responsiveness and optimise transport options.
To support this effort the NOC has developed a solution using SharpCloud; The leading visual business collaboration software used to support and manage strategic decisions across your business portfolio.
