Rail Gauging Experts Release Transformational Clearance Assessment Software

D/Gauge | 22 March 2021

  • New D/Gauge Rift clearance software is set to transform the rail network
  • Virtual launch event will be hosted on 8 June 2021

Gauging is vital to the safety, capacity and operation of every rail network yet for two decades the technology and the processes behind it have not changed – until now. The release of new software - D/Gauge Rift - by specialist gauging provider D/Gauge, is set to transform the industry, making clearance assessments easier and safer whilst also saving time. 

“The incumbent application used in the industry requires an elevated level of technical understanding and can take hours of manipulation and multiple processes to achieve the very minimum gauging standard” Explained Colin Johnson, Managing Director of D/Gauge.

He continued: “Rift has been optimised for Track and Infrastructure engineering. It is a powerful, cloud-based gauging application created by our outstanding in-house team of software developers and expert gauging engineers. The interface is intuitive and easy to use, and the assessments produced can take minutes compared to the hours currently facing engineers throughout the industry. It’s game-changing!”

“What’s more, the Rift software is highly detailed, yet easy to learn providing increased accessibility to gauging information. D/Gauge Rift will not only transform routine gauging activities but will make whole teams more effective by saving time, revenue spent on complex training and overall headache.”

“Beta customers have been exceedingly complimentary about the software and have described D/Gauge Rift as "absolutely phenomenal" As a result, interest in D/Gauge Rift is already exceedingly high. The official online launch event takes place on 8 June 2021 and we look forward to being able to showcase the system and its full capabilities then,” Colin concluded.
