HCL Axon and CN to develop iCREW for train crew management

HCL Axon, a business transformation consultancy, has formed a joint development partnership with Canadian National Railway Company, or CN, to build iCREW, which is based on SAP and addresses the train crew management requirements of organizations, which have complex work and job assignment and tracking rules.

According to HCL Axon, the iCREW system is expected to allow organizations with large operational workforces to plan, schedule and assign crews, manage job boards and rotations, manage bulletins, bids and awards, and provide rule processing for end of shift reporting, claims validation, time to gross calculations and labor distribution.

The company has said that iCREW will be developed and tested according to HCL Axon’s product delivery methodology and will be built to the same product development standards that SAP requires of its own developments. iCREW will integrate into the SAP ECC environment, including SAP HCM, FI and transportation management modules.

Steve Peck, president of HCL Axon in the Americas, said: We are delighted to partner with CN to extend its SAP solution to deliver further cost and utilization efficiencies. Our rapid development of eSOA compliant solutions such as iCREW and iMRO fully leverage the SAP business process platform to deliver a strategic advantage to our customers in an increasingly competitive and cost conscious global environment.
