Brisbane, Australia – February, 2016 – Biarri Group, a global provider of mathematically powered web based software, systems and analytical tools, today announced the launch of Biarri Rail — a dedicated business specifically targeting the needs of the railway industry. Leveraging the wealth of experience, optimisation engines and tools built by Biarri over the past 8 years, Biarri Rail is focusing on empowering operators, managers and asset owners to become more efficient through tailored and powerful cloud based planning and live operations software.
“The Biarri Group of companies has a great history in the application of optimisation and intuitive cloud based software across many industries including transport, healthcare, energy and mining, agriculture and telecommunications” said Ash Nelson, Biarri Co-Founder and Biarri Optimisation MD. “We’re excited to add to the Biarri Group a business providing modern and innovative solutions specifically for the rail industry.”
Despite the new name, Biarri Rail already has a strong track record of providing software to some of the largest above and below rail operators. Kansas City Southern Railroad, Aurizon, Pacific National, ARTC and Rio Tinto have all benefited from Biarri’s planning and live operational solutions. Technology providers GE Transportation and Oliver Wyman have also partnered with Biarri Rail to compliment and integrate custom and unique requirements.
“Over the last few years we have talked to many railways about their frustration with previous approaches to planning and operational software not delivering on its promise. With our strong rail experience, mathematical background and software development platform we have proven that we can deliver value to our railway customers and bring a positive change to their planning and operations.” said Tom Forbes, Biarri Rail CEO.
