At Wi-Tronix, we are dedicated to supporting the safe and efficient operation of the rail network even in these times of crisis. We are monitoring and following US CDC and government official guidance for our physical interactions internally and externally. Wi-Tronix is committed to help reduce the spread of the virus and shorten its impact while at the same time we are committed to supporting our customers with the services we provide. Freight railroads and mass transit agencies are classified as Critical Infrastructure by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Transportation through the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). To support this critical infrastructure, we are taking the necessary measures that ensure the health and safety of our customers, employees and their families.
Effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020, Wi-Tronix has implemented a remote work policy to protect our valued employees and customers. We have implemented travel limitations, enhanced hygiene and cleanliness requirements and other policies as well to limit physical interaction. Wi-Tronix employees with roles that can connect offsite are working remotely to minimize large group physical interaction. Wi-Tronix provides 24/7/365 support for our customers, and we are making the necessary efforts to continue this support during the crisis.
Wi-Tronix is in the business of connected solutions. The railroads around the world use our innovative solutions from their offices, and now more from their individual homes. We are enabling access to critical information that keeps vital transportation systems running. Our teams are committed to helping the railway industry remain connected, no matter how they are connected.

When the control system’s impact on fuel savings is estimated to be 3%-18% realized, how do you confirm the technology is correctly applied to assure on-time arrival with the least possible fuel usage?
The solution is real-time alerting to the Fuel Desk, Dispatch or Road Foreman for usage on a Trip Optimizer equipped locomotive, enabling immediate corrective action.
With Wi-Tronix Trip Optimizer Usage Alerts, a real-time notification is sent via email, text or in-browser. Customers who have found maximum value from the Wi-Tronix Trip Optimizer Usage Alert solution are sending the notifications to their 24/7 manned fuel desk and integrated their dispatch desk for actioning.
