Wabtec Digital Mine general manager Doug Hanson said: “Our Digital Mine operations performance management solutions are designed to improve plant productivity through advanced process control and analytics, driving increased recovery rates, capacity utilisation and asset utilisation.

“With the Webalo integration, we are enhancing this solution and enabling operators to visualise detailed and actionable information, rapidly update and disseminate key performance indicators (KPI’s) and make more informed decisions.”

Webalo’s digital technology platform is designed to operate in the wake of large volumes of real-time transactions by several users.

Webalo CEO Peter Price said: “Our collaboration with Wabtec allows us to better serve the mining industry by enabling frontline workers to simplify and improve their daily activities with intelligently managed workflows and real-time access to actionable analytics, alerts and notifications.

“We are helping mine operators realise the value of untapped data, draw insights and enable action in real-time that allows for greater operational control and improved business productivity.”

Both based in the US, Wabtec is a provider of digital solutions and value-added services for freight and transit rail while Webalo is a provider of the UX Platform for frontline workers.
