Fact Sheet — Hitachi Rail reduces development time by 70%

Hitachi Rail

Hitachi Rail rolled out 60 apps to 1,500 warehouse management workers in 2 months with reduced development time.

Hitachi Rail is known for its innovation and market-leading technology but internally, their technology wasn’t cutting it. They faced a time when they needed to find a way to become more agile and able to react to change quickly. In order to do this, they needed to streamline business processes and eliminate paper waste and reliance on Excel. They also wanted to increase the quality and amount of information that was flowing into their SAP system and wanted their employees to adopt this new solution and actually enjoy using it.

After exploring Neptune Software, Hitachi Rail quickly understood why our Neptune DX Platform would not only be able to accomplish all of their short term goals to rework their warehouse management processes but scale above that into the future.

After 2 months, Hitachi Rail with the help of two in-house developers and minimal support from functional consultants was ready to roll out 60 applications to 1,500 users. They were able to create apps that are compatible with scanners and Windows 10 tablets and were able to create these apps all while dealing with their heavily customized SAP system. The apps are ones that employees love and adopted quickly and also removed manual paper-based processes. These applications have mobile and offline capabilities and with the help of the Neptune DX Platform, they have reduced app development time by 70%.
