Railinc Wins NCTA Business Value Award

Railinc has been recognized as winner of the 2017 Business Value Award at the NC Tech Awards, the largest and most prestigious statewide technology awards program. Presented annually by the North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA), the awards honor the companies and individuals who represent the best and brightest in technology and business in North Carolina.

This is the first time Railinc has won the Business Value award. Railinc was named Industry-Driven Company of the Year in 2016.

“It’s an honor to be recognized among such an impressive group of technology companies and leaders,” said Allen West, Railinc president and CEO. “This award underscores the important work our people do to support the freight rail industry and the value they deliver to customers every day through our products and services.”

Railinc’s nomination highlighted the company’s asset health work, the AskRail mobile application and its efforts to support freight rail operations in the Chicago Terminal, the busiest rail terminal in North America.

“Since 1995, the NC Tech Awards has honored excellence and innovation throughout North Carolina, representing the best and brightest,” said Brooks Raiford, NCTA president and CEO. “As a winner, Railinc has distinguished itself as a peer-leader, and we are proud to recognize them as a 2017 NC Tech Awards winner.”

Railinc’s CIO, Jerry Traynham, was also recognized as 2017 Private Sector CIO of the Year at the event. Click here to read a Q&A with Traynham.
