IFS enterprise resource planning solution supports Resolute’s mission-critical business processes across Australia and Africa. This step automates the companies mining efforts further and already proved to be successful.
Resolute Mining digitizes business with IFS Applications in the cloud
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Resolute Mining Limited, a multi-mine, low-cost gold producer, has completed the first phase of an IFS Applications™ enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment to digitize and integrate its business operations.
The ERP deployment replaces a number of standalone information systems with a single, integrated, cloud-based system accessible from all of Resolute’s sites. Leveraging IFS’s global deployment capabilities, the system services the company’s head office in Perth and gold mines in Australia and Africa.
IFS Applications now supports business processes across the organization, including finance, human capital management (HCM), enterprise asset management (EAM), supply chain, mobile work orders, projects and subcontracts, document management, and health, safety & environment.
A second phase of the deployment will integrate IFS Applications with mining production systems, including those controlling Resolute’s flagship Syama Gold Mine in Mali, the world’s first, purpose built, fully automated sub-level cave gold mine.
Jodie Hatch, Chief Technology Officer at Resolute Mining Limited, said:
“Before implementation, Resolute evaluated a number of competing global ERP suppliers. We chose IFS because it was consistently strong across all the different areas, particularly enterprise asset management.”
Consolidating business information in IFS Applications has created one version of the truth that is already leading to better reporting, more ready access to information, and significantly improved data quality and reliability.
“In the long run, Resolute will realize significant efficiencies from IFS Applications. Previously, each site operated in its own way. Information processing was more manual and monthly and quarterly and year-end reporting was time consuming. With IFS it has become more automated and streamlined.”
Improved data quality will drive further efficiencies. Previously, for example, supplier data wasn’t consistent across different systems.
“With greater accuracy we can improve reporting with IFS and leverage economies of scale for greater purchasing efficiencies,” .
Warren Zietsman, IFS Sales Vice President and Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, said:
“Resolute is a great example of a mining company making strategic investments in technology to drive innovation and efficiency. We are proud Resolute has chosen IFS Applications to digitize and integrate its business operations and look forward to supporting its ongoing business transformation.”
