The new cloud platform for RU, IMs, leasing companies and maintainers

RAILBASE is an upcoming platform that for the first time allows the management, operation and maintenance of railway vehicles and railway infrastructure in one application. Thus, RAILBASE ensures continuous, digital processes in your company.

RAILBASE - the basis for efficient railway processes

RAILBASE has railway DNA

and is developed by railway experts exclusively for the railway industry. All railway specifics are already on board and guarantee rapid integration in your company at low project costs.

RAILBASE is intuitive

and is developed with great attention to user-friendliness. For you, this means short training for new colleagues as well as high user acceptance and satisfied employees.

RAILBASE is extensive

and covers all core processes of operations and maintenance, including commercial processes. You only need one system and thus, achieve efficient and high-quality processes in your daily business.

RAILBASE means cloud

and is developed for it. As your business grows, RAILBASE automatically scales with it. You always get good performance and costs only incur for services that you actually need and only for those users that were registered per month.
RAILBASE supports the upcoming RAILDEX standard for the digital order process between ECM 3 and ECM 4.


RAILBASE offers a wide range of functions and covers all core processes of operations and maintenance, including the associated commercial processes.

The Asset Management & Maintenance segment takes into account both discrete and linear assets. This allows you to manage not only your fleet, but also your rail infrastructure. In the area of Rail Traffic & Dispatching, the focus is on rail freight traffic as well as plant and depot traffic.

Depending on your company, you can flexibly compile the required range of functions from over 30 individual RAILBASE modules. You can expand and reduce your selection on a monthly basis. For you, this means: maximum flexibility, no long-term commitment, no unnecessary costs.

Frequently asked questions

We are frequently asked these questions regarding RAILBASE.

OK, the most difficult question right at the beginning. The answer is: It depends…

RAILBASE development stretches over several years, during which new functionalities are continuously added. The timing is therefore related to the required functionalities in your company. We would be happy to discuss this timing with you in a personal meeting.

In general, the functionalities of the Asset Management & Maintenance segment will be available earlier than the full scope in the Rail Traffic & Dispatching segment. The first existing customers will have access to RAILBASE in 2023.

RAILBASE will be available in two editions: RAILBASE Basic and RAILBASE Professional.

We will provide the Basic Edition completely free of charge. This applies to both the use and the associated data management.

The monthly costs for the RAILBASE Professional Edition depend on the type and number of users in your company as well as the desired modules. We would be happy to calculate your resulting price together with you during a product presentation.

Yes, we will provide a free RAILBASE Basic Edition. The range of functions is limited to the ECM 3 and ECM 4 functionalities within the area of maintenance .

All functionalities necessary to serve the new RAILDEX standard will be included in the RAILBASE Basic Edition. More detailed information will be made available on this website soon.

Yes, RAILBASE will be distributed as an update to all COMAP and DISPOLINO customers. After we have performed the update, you can seamlessly continue working with your data.We prepare your individual update time in the long term and coordinate the whole procedure including training with you.

Of course, you can test RAILBASE. Our support team is continuously available during the entire test period to advise you and answer your questions. Simply contact us.

Since RAILBASE is a cloud-based system, it can be made available anywhere in the world (provided that the respective country allows access to Microsoft Azure). Currently, we deliver RAILBASE in German, English and French. You need another language? Additional languages can be added at any time without any problems.

RAILBASE automatically adapts to the device you are using, so that our interface and its content are always optimally displayed. For certain areas in RAILBASE, we will develop special apps optimized for the respective devices. These areas will of course also be available to you offline.

In the development of RAILBASE, we have given special consideration accessibility.

Here are just a few examples:

  • Keyboard accessibility: functionalities are accessible via keyboard and keyboard traps are eliminated.
  • Focus order: Content and its focus are implemented in a logical tab order. The logical order is also implemented visually.
  • Input assistance: To avoid errors, the user is given assistance, for example when entering forms. If errors are made, these are identified and displayed to the user.

By the way: For our customers, whose employees often work in a dark environment, we have developed a special dark mode.
