Human resources and machines work in conjunction to enhance the efficiency of critical infrastructure. The integration of advanced technology adds to the value, saving a lot of time and operational costs across certain industries. When it comes to railways, the scenario is no different. At this juncture, the large scale user base is one of the main industry-specific challenges for this crucial sector.
Management of such a user base, coupled with a massive human resource is a tedious task. Successful alignment of human resource depends on the ability to predict, control and direct the behavior of the workforce towards the main goal. Especially, with Indian railways being one of the biggest service industries employing 16.6 lakh workers across the country. It is a massive challenge to achieve efficiency, while aligning such a large workforce for carrying out multiple operations in a seamless manner.
This is where automation of operations is the key for curating flawless communications to streamline key operations in the railways sector. The revolutionary developments in the technology are transforming the approach towards managing the manpower. With this at the back of mind, the ministry of railways laid out numerous criteria for the new-age analytics firms to come out with sophisticated solutions to enhance the operational efficiency and disperse the human resource in an effective way, keeping right person at the right place.
The government has been keen on assigning projects to the local companies ever since coming up with ‘Make in India’ initiative. A comprehensive strategy of working in sync with missions like Agnii to accelerate the growth of New India’s innovations has also been devised. Most of the local companies though haven’t met the criteria at large for managing the human resources in railways.
However, critical infrastructure protection company ACSG Corp has successfully fulfilled the obligations and developed software and analytics tools to streamline key operations, dealing with issues like transfer modules, leave applications, mutual transfer, training management system, etc., in a comprehensive way. The company is offering secured solutions to the ministry of railways to automate the management of human resources in an efficient way.
A step towards the vision of ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’, the collaboration of local firms can not only solve the long-standing issues related to the human resource management in railways, but also ensure the protection of vital data. being ‘Vocal for Local’ is the right way forward for a country with dwindling economy, especially when it comes to the critical infrastructure protection.
Automation of HR resources has enabled changes in the mechanism by revolutionizing the vital areas of key sectors. It can help combat the lack of visibility and tap the potential with increased performance. Improving the spectrum of human resource management increases the equipment life cycle, while also improving the overall profitability. Such a model can also enable faster and efficient decision making, which can be useful in the long run.
