Railroad Software was founded to further develop the rail industry in technology
Railroad Software was established “to create management software from railyard experts as an affordable solution regardless of size or technical capabilities.” Jeff Birmingham, the company’s CEO, has roots that run deeply through the railroading industry. As a 5th generation railroader, Mr. Birmingham inherited a wealth of knowledge from his families’ experiences owning and operating railroad properties. Instilled in Mr. Birmingham was the tradition of excellence and pride to service all customers equally regardless of the size of their railroad-based operations.
Mr. Birmingham explains, “Running a small to medium-sized rail yard taught us that many of our business practices could be optimized through better, faster, cheaper, processes and tools within rail yard management software.” After the realization of their pressing need, he sought out a software that fit their size and budget. The multiple demos and quotes received left Mr. Birmingham unhappy at the current level of software available. He decided to take it upon himself to make an intuitive system that lowered their facilities operational costs. Since that time, Mr. Birmingham has grown his software products and company very rapidly since 2012 and looks forward to delivering Railroad Software’s services to the Rail Industry.
