The Challenge

While the rail industry's swift move towards digitization offers significant growth opportunities for companies like 3Squared, it also introduces a range of challenges:

Regulatory Compliance

Adapting software solutions to comply with evolving regulatory standards across different jurisdictions is complex and time-consuming. 3Squared remaining agile and adaptable is essential for sustained growth.

Skill Scarcity

Due to the scarcity of qualified professionals proficient in both rail industry operations and regulatory compliance, scaling becomes challenging. Effective utilization of these specialized resources is essential to ensure sustained growth.

Fostering Accountability

Maintaining accountability amid team growth requires robust project management tools. Establishing clear structures, tracking progress, and fostering transparency are top priorities for 3Squared.

Real-time Visibility and Reporting

Obtaining real-time project status to track project progress, resource allocation, and financial performance is essential for optimizing operations and driving business growth.

Project Complexity

Project planning becomes increasingly complex as it extends beyond task management to encompass tracking Risks, Assumptions, Issues, and Dependencies (RAID). This complexity intensifies with the proliferation of projects and interdependencies.

Strategic Data Analysis

As 3Squared expands, the ability to gather, analyze, and interpret data across various dimensions becomes critical for driving strategic initiatives.

The Struggle

Relying on outdated tools like Microsoft Project for project planning, spreadsheets for finance tracking, and manual methods for resource planning posed significant challenges for 3Squared. These legacy systems lacked integration, efficiency, and real-time visibility, leading to disjointed workflows, data silos, and increased risk of errors. Transitioning away from these antiquated methods towards more modern, integrated solutions became imperative for streamlining operations and driving growth.
