Site Access


Checkpoint is a Site Access and Control system that has been designed by rail professionals to allow contractors to effectively manage personnel, activities, fatigue, performance and claims.

As the system is modular, clients can choose individual elements to suit their needs.  As we are a software development company, we can tailor and design solutions specifically for clients.

Developed in 2012, Checkpoint has been endorsed by clients’ SHEQ Advisors, project teams, commercial teams and Network Rail project management.
