Brisbane-based software and services provider Mincom has signed a deal worth US$6 million with Canadian mining leader, HudBay Minerals.

Under the agreement, HudBay will implement Mincom’s entire suite of technical-mining solutions, as well as Mincom Ellipse, its enterprise asset management solution, using a rapid-deployment solution for implementation called Mincom Accelerator, to further drive consistency and growth across its business.

Mincom Accelerator is a pre-configured deployment of Mincom's core Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution, Mincom Ellipse, which includes applications for finance, maintenance and materials management.

Leveraging Mincom's 30 years of experience in asset-intensive industries, Mincom Accelerator delivers best-in-class business processes for these industries to speed deployment and decrease costs.

OPTIMISING ASSET MANAGEMENT

Former HudBay CIO Garth Thompson explains why the business sought Mincom’s services.

"After conducting an extended evaluation, we selected Mincom due to the company’s unparalleled depth of domain expertise and proven success in delivering solutions for asset management and operational mining management," Thompson says.

"And by leveraging Mincom’s rapid-deployment model, we expect to achieve business benefits much more quickly and at a lower cost than is usually the case with standard enterprise software roll-outs," he says.

For mining companies such as HudBay, asset uptime is "essential", according to Mincom (global field operations) executive vice president Craig Jones.

"We are pleased the company has selected Mincom as its core solutions provider for mission-critical business processes such as EAM and mining-operations management," Jones says.

"Mincom offers the only complete enterprise solution for mining available today, helping our clients to remain competitive and agile in the challenging economic environment," he says.
