Railinc Wins Tech Award for Rail Industry Service

Railinc has been recognized as the 2016 Industry-Driven Company of the Year at the NC Tech Awards, the largest and most prestigious statewide technology awards program. Given 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 second time Railinc has been named Industry-Driven Company of the Year. The award recognizes companies that have provided a product or service to a specific industry and that have made a notable impact to the betterment of that industry.

“North Carolina is known for its world-class technology community, and it’s an honor for Railinc to earn this recognition,” said Allen West, Railinc president and CEO. “The award is a real tribute to our great employees and their commitment to serving the freight rail industry through our innovative technology solutions.”

Railinc’s nomination highlighted the company’s work on the AskRail mobile application and its work 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, president and CEO of NCTA. “As a winner, Railinc has distinguished itself as a peer-leader, and we are proud to recognize them as a 2016 NC Tech Awards winner.”
