SARA is an advanced software, Blockchain-based, whose purpose is to define, design and develop all Safety Railway Management System functionalities.
Our team has been developing RSMS (paper) since 2002 and, as result of our experience, we realized there was the perfect scenario for a blockchain-based digital platform, with a very intuitive user interface, that compiles all different modules of a RSMS, having direct connection with railway authorities (European Railway Agency).
SARA is already implemented in some of the biggest European Railway Undertakings and will be installed in Port Authorities over this year.
We offer a tool to digitalize this sector, a very closed and undigitalized sector with a 35 Billion USD market size.
2002: Safety Management System Engineering
2018: Project kick-off and First SARA MVP Development
2020: Implementation in Spain and Germany Railway Undertakings
2021: SARA Phase II. Evolution of the product including technological improvement and commercial expansion
2022: New functionalities added and Europe expansion
SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (SMS)
SMS are mandatory system frameworks, promoted by the European Railway Agency (ERA) to ensure that the organization achieves its business objectives in a safe manner and complies with all the safety obligations.
These safety obligations must always be fulfilled in today’s ever changing and complex Railway environment.
All Railway Undertakings and Infrastructure Managers must have an updated SMS to opperate in the European Railway system.
The main features of the SMS cover procedures such as drugs and alcohol inspections, personnel training processes, annual plans and objectives, system monitoring, documentation…
Unique solution on the market
About 2000 potential clients in Europe.
According to Global Market Insights, Railway Management System Market size surpassed USD 35 billion in 2019. Target market:
- Railway undertakings (RUs)
- Infraestructure managers (IMs)
- Port Authorities
- Railway personnel training centers

Technological Readiness Level 5
SaRa Phase I has already been developed, achieving a TRL-5 product with all SMS modules. Some of the most important Railway actors from Spain and Germany are already using SaRa, including Railway Undertaking, Infrastructure Managers, Port Authorities and Spanish Agency itself.
Phase I Modules (ALREADY DEVELOPED, IN PRODUCTION):
- PERSONNEL ENABLING QUALIFICATIONS
- PERSONNEL CONTINUOUS TRAINING
- PERSONNEL MEDICAL FITNESS REVISION
- SAFETY INSPECTIONS AND CONTROLS
- ACCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS AND ANALYSIS
- STANDARDS COMPLIANCE. PROVIDERS
- RAILWAY SAFETY PLAN AND OBJECTIVES
- TECHNICAL OPERATIONS PROCEDURES
Why do we choose blockchain?
Blockchain technologies enhance interoperability between systems and provide a single source of truth, shared by all stakeholders, enabling a high level of information integration, while ensuring that information cannot be altered and providing high levels of transparency and auditability, keystone of systems like SMS.
The entire system is governed by a set of Smart Contracts that implement the service operation rules, ensure legal procedures and regulations compliance and agreements between the actors.
New contract versions are scheduled to be deployed to incorporate regulatory changes, new agreements, or new features.
Capabilities that are derived from Smart Contracts are:
- Process automation
- Entities Management
- Service Management
- Information Privacy
- Procedures Compliance
- Tokenization (Documents and Evidence)
