Finland Railway invests in agile remote meetings and digital CM

Finland Railway is a vision of the future for Finland’s main railway for passenger and freight transport. In a long and complex project like this, it was crucial to have advanced digital tools in use from day one. ContractZen was chosen to ease remote meetings and project management.

Building Finland Railway will make it possible to travel from Tampere to Helsinki in about an hour. It will also enable a direct long-distance train service from the mainline to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport and even faster service from Helsinki City Centre to the airport.

More growth, more jobs, and more companies

”This will be one of the biggest investments in Finland’s history, equal to the ongoing construction of the new nuclear power plant. The effects of the program are substantial. It will make it possible to travel from Tampere to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in 35 minutes and to Helsinki City Centre in 50 minutes”, says Janne Salonen, the Finance Director of The City of Tampere.Janne Salonen

Since the beginning, the Finland Railway program wanted to invest in digital tools that enable agile remote meetings and secure distribution of materials. For these tasks, they found ContractZen, whose user-friendly interface and other beneficial features exceeded all expectations.

"We utilized the trial version already in the first board meeting and concluded that the application is really easy to use and has versatile features."

Flexible project management

The members of the board of directors of Finland Railway live in different areas of the country. Therefore, the easy and secure distribution of materials, storing of minutes, calendar integration, and electronic signing of documents were essential to the organization. Meetings must also be accessible with all devices, whether it is a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer.

”I can recommend ContractZen to all companies from small to large. Moreover, I don’t see any restrictions for its use also in foundations or associations. When the system is so easy to use, you don’t need support for the deployment nor daily operations. I think I have had only one question which was answered right away by the customer service."
