Mining software solutions provider RPMGlobal has signed a master software subscription licence and services deal with Accenture’s subsidiary Proquire to offer its software as part of the Accenture Connected Mine Suite.
Under the terms of the agreement, RPM will offer software products on a subscription basis through Accenture.
The Connected Mine suite is a solution developed by Accenture that combines analytics and mobile and cloud technology to enable efficient management of in-pit mining operations.
Through the new partnership, RPM seeks to bring on integrated mine planning capabilities to enhance visibility, productivity and efficiency across the mining value chain.
RPM CEO and managing director Richard Mathews said: “Working together, Accenture and RPM can bring mine engineering insight together with operational acumen into one central system for analysis and decision making.”
Using digital technology and internet of things cloud with on-premise platforms, the Connected Mine is focused on breaking down rigid data siloes to make sure the right information is delivered to decision-makers.
The subscription agreement will see the integration of RPM’s short term planning solution, XECUTE, into the Connected Mine.
The integration will allow clients to monitor real time data and analyse operational performance within the mine.
Mathews added: “This insight will facilitate the ability for end users to predict end of period outcomes so they can adjust their plans mid shift if needed.
“If a change is warranted the system will distribute the new plan to the team in the mine in real time. The system will also monitor activity in the mine and will alert the user to potential safety risks.”
