Irish Rail Selects Cora Platform for Project Portfolio Management

DUBLIN, 3 March 2023 Cora Systems, a leading provider of enterprise portfolio, program and project management (PPM) solutions, today announced a joint partnership agreement with Irish Rail to use the Cora platform as its project portfolio management solution.

Irish Rail is a Dublin-headquartered company, which provides intercity, regional, commuter and freight rail services in Ireland as well as operating Rosslare Europort. It selected Cora ahead of several other shortlisted suppliers because of the configurability of the Cora platform and its depth of experience in implementing solutions in the portfolio and project management sector.

Mick McMahon, CIO, Irish Rail, said:

“We’re delighted to partner with Cora. It’s important to us that they are Irish. We share a similar vision. They really stand out with the flexibility and configurability of their solution. They’ve shown a great ability to understand our needs. We’re looking for a single source of truth for project data. Quick status views across all our projects – from scheduling to financials. Cora will provide that capability for us.”

Commenting on the implementation, Philip Martin, CEO, Cora Systems, said:

“We are really excited to work with Irish Rail on providing additional project governance, visibility, and insight to their Capital and Operational projects. As Irish Rail’s project growth expands, we are delighted to be alongside their Portfolio, Program and Project Managers providing integrated schedules, estimates and strong Risk and Change Management. The culture fit between the two companies reflects the positive direction both organisations are going in. Welcome Irish Rail!

Cora Systems has been going through hyper-growth in the last number of years with 228% ARR growth in the last twelve months alone.
