Group Manager – Global Mining Company

Global Mining Company – EIM Core Services

Our client is a global resources company that mines, explores and develops copper, zinc and other base metal projects across Australia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Peru.

Business Challenges

Our client needed to bring together the information management practices of its multiple sites across the globe to address the business challenges of finding vital documents, proving compliance with industry standards and over-retention of information raising the risks of accessing out-of-date operating instructions.

Inefficiencies were identified with the same information being created multiple times at different sites due to not being able to find information and also not being sure of the correct version. Staff were unable to collaborate and leverage knowledge across sites.

Business Solution

To address their challenge of managing documents and consolidating disparate systems from multiple locations from around the world, our client implemented a centralised solution to drive efficiencies through common process across all mine sites and enable information reuse across all locations.
