ORBIS — Network Rail’s Offering Rail Better Information Services

ORBIS, a £330 million seven-year programme to create a detailed digital model of the UK’s rail network, is one of Europe’s largest rail infrastructure digital transformation programmes. Launched in 2012, the programme aims to digitise maintenance of the UK’s railway infrastructure to help Network Rail manage assets more efficiently, cost-effectively and safely and is predicted to save up to £1 billion over the next decade.

Through the introduction of mobile apps and tools specifically designed to capture high-quality asset data and new ways of viewing the railway, ORBIS aims to deliver the resources needed to meet these aspirations.
