Wabtec's Global Services division has won a three year, automatically renewing contract with BC Rail to implement an automated car repair billing system. It collects repair and inspection data from field locations, automates administrative billing tasks, and is integrated with the railroad's corporate accounting system. Recording and invoicing for repairs on foreign freight cars is dramatically improved as a result. It is expected that 2003 billings will be up about 10%. The system lets maintenance personnel use a wireless, hand-held device to record inspection and repair work conducted on freight cars in off-site field locations and to transmit the information to a central network server. Repairs are validated in real time for completeness and compliance with AAR specifications. Maintenance staff can also retrieve car repair history information, access work orders, and print work orders and repair records to a network printer from the field. Roy
