Mining ERP Software

Enterprise Software Solutions for the Mining Industry

Providing proven expertise in Software Selection and Implementation in Mining.

Mining is a complex business and complicated by fluctuating pricing and often unpredictable resource fields. Mining projects need to be managed differently through each stage of their life cycle, so controlling costs across exploration, construction and production is a challenge. Having the right enterprise systems is critical to success and a prerequisite to support the organisation’s growth and profitability.

For mining companies searching for a new ERP platform, or specific best-of-breed Enterprise Software solutions (e.g. HSE, Talent Mgt., EAM, Enterprise Planning, etc.), ensuring you make the right decisions and maximising your return on investment should be primary considerations.

In our experience helping mining companies, everyone is looking to achieve similar goals through process and systems improvement, including:

  • Improving operational efficiency
  • Managing multiple exploration and mining sites
  • Optimising ore logistics and transportation
  • Achieving high inventory visibility
  • Streamlining procurement
  • Shortening order-to-cash cycle
  • Minimising downtime through effective asset management
  • Managing your workforce effectively
  • Delivering clarity with accurate financial and operational reporting
  • Supporting decision making with insights and KPIs.
