An asset management system is essential in the everyday demands of the mining industry. Here at MEX we understand this and have developed a comprehensive maintenance management solution to suit all types of mining operations.
For almost 30 years, MEX has remained a leader in the CMMS space by providing an effective solution for any company needing to track assets, parts, and labour. We understand mining operations often exist in remote or poor infrastructure areas and require a powerful tool to track, record and manage information from anywhere.
We give you the flexibility to install the software on-premise or run it through the MEX Data Hosting service. MEX is completely web-based and works on all devices from phones to computers and even tablets, ensuring the system is accessible at any location.

Take control of maintenance and resource management
For mining companies, assets and machines are the focal points of the business. Maintenance of these is essential. With the MEX CMMS, mine personnel can schedule and assign maintenance tasks and send notifications immediately after a job has been created. The MEX Asset Register allows users to record assets and all associated maintenance data to measure their performance and schedule reminders for maintenance.
When MEX is setup, productivity will skyrocket where mining managers can take control over maintenance spending. The system allows you to set up equipment/job maintenance budgets and compare planned versus actual spending, leading to more informed decisions being made.
Forget about the old spreadsheets and easily capture data, report accurately and eliminate human error. MEX brings all information into one place and mine operation personnel can check updates whenever they want and make decisions promptly. MEX has a powerful range of reports and an inbuilt KPI Dashboard to give you the insights you need to drive operational improvements.
CMMS training and consulting
MEX is a simple product to implement with effective Training options available that can be conducted online or face-to-face. A two-day introduction course and a one-day advanced course, a three-day training investment to be able to use MEX, is as good as it gets. This means that companies can have MEX installed, key staff trained, system setup in a very short timeframe and achieving ROI while other providers are still working out the implementation strategy.
When you couple that with the guidance provided by our experienced Consulting and Training staff our customers are able to start realizing the return on investment very quickly – by average around 6-12 months. Where they will start to see a decrease in breakdowns, a reduction of downtime and costs of maintenance, work becomes more PM based and not reactive. All in all, they can better control stock, have a better knowledge of costs, and better track their equipment.
System deployment and online hosting options
MEX gives you plenty of options for installation and hosting. You are able to run the program from individual computers, through a network, or online via our Data Hosting service.
When you choose our Data Hosting option, your whole system is held in our secure data centre. You’ll be able to access MEX through any computer, tablet or mobile phone.
By using MEX online, you can reduce management overheads, save money on infrastructure and increase the security of your data. No IT personnel are required as we manage everything, including your database and the servers that MEX operates on.
