UK Division of World’s Number One Surface Transportation Group, a Longtime Sirenum Client, Garners Big Award
London, UK–Sirenum client Great Western Railway (GWR), a division of The First Group, won awards for Rail Business of the Year, Rolling Stock Excellence and Safety & Security Excellence at the Rail Business Awards held in London on 22 February 2018.
The Rail Business Awards are designed to “recognise business, customer service and technical excellence, as well as individual achievements, providing a valuable opportunity to pay tribute to all the hard work that goes on across the UK rail sector, day in, day out.”
Last year, GWR was named a finalist for Technology Innovation, recognising the implementation of Sirenum to manage rosters with integrated fatigue management.
This year GWR was named Rail Business of the Year for having shown an ‘incredible versatility and resilience through a very difficult period’, despite the disruption caused by electrification and upgrading works. GWR has also won the Rolling Stock Excellence and Safety & Security Excellence categories.
“We’re very proud of our partnership with GWR, starting with Ajmal Akram from Old Oak Common believing in us back in 2014, and now continuing all the way up to First Group headquarters,” said Sirenum Founder and CEO Benjamin Rubin, who developed Sirenum after nearly a decade in the transportation staffing industry. “We have learned so much from Ajmal and the rest of the team at GWR and First Group over the past three-plus years, and our whole client base benefits from the advancements in our product that are the fruits of our longtime relationship.”
