Software will be basis of its new information management system.

ESRI announced that Finnish company VR-Track Ltd. has chosen ESRI's geographic information system (GIS) software as the basis of its new information management system.

VR-Track is the arm of the VR Group responsible for railway track planning, construction, and maintenance. It provides its services primarily to the Finnish Rail Administration, which manages the rail network owned by the Finnish government.

ESRI's ArcGIS family of software products will be integrated with the information management solution provided to VR-Track by Novo, a leading information technology (IT) provider in Finland. The integrated system will be used to implement a comprehensive information management system for railway planning management that will enhance planning cooperation and improve IT system operability.
