Bombardier Transportation

With 63 production and engineering sites in 26 countries and 19 service centers across the world, Bombardier Transportation is the global leader in the rail industry. A key issue for the service organization is having access to up-to-date information anytime, anywhere.

Etteplan has been a long and close partner to Bombardier in their journey from handling tons of traditional documents to a well structured XML based production and publishing information platform called TrainMate.

TrainMate is a document portal for train maintenance information. Here all information like maintenance instructions, descriptions, schedules and spare parts are organized in clear searchable structure. With its short lead times TrainMate facilitates the cooperation between vehicle owners, operators, maintenance suppliers and authorities. An update today – new release tomorrow.

With TrainMate, Bombardier also has a complete information production environment, where new information quickly can be modified and published according to pre-defined workflows.

The TrainMate platform has been in use since 1999 and has become a success with a continuously growing number of satisfied users.

"Etteplan* has always been a competent and trustful partner. The result of the long and close cooperation with Etteplan has given us the successful publishing platform, TrainMate."
