Sheffield’s 3squared Brings Home Coveted Rail Business Award For Excellence

Digital solutions and software specialist for the rail industry, 3Squared has taken the top prize in the Supplier and Contractor Excellence category at this year’s Rail Business Awards (RBAs).

The Sheffield company beat strong competition to be crowned the winner in a category that focused on successful collaboration and innovation across the rail industry, for its ground-breaking RailSmart suite of digital solutions.

This year’s RBA event took place online for the first time over two days this week and 3Squared was announced as the winner via video at 12pm today.

The judges commented: ‘3Squared has steadily evolved its RailSmart suite of products in partnership with significant clients to provide additional functionality for train operators and infrastructure managers.

‘The company has continued to develop its business while giving back to the next generation.’

James Fox, co-founder and Commercial Director for 3Squared, commented: ‘We are incredibly proud to be recognised by the Rail Business Awards, which is such a highly regarded awards programme in the industry. We work hard to build strong relationships with our clients that create a collaborative working process to produce a greener, safer and more efficient railway, and we’re delighted this has been saluted by the RBAs.

‘This award is testament to our passionate and dedicated team here at 3Squared, a lot of whom are Sheffield Hallam alumni, and we couldn’t be prouder of the work they do and the recognition they are receiving. It is fantastic that the judges acknowledged how important it is to our business to encourage and nurture the next generation of talent here in Sheffield.’

For two decades, 3Squared has worked with customers to resolve big challenges through technology within the rail sector.
