As they begin growing and opening new mines, often in different countries around the world, small and medium sized mining companies deal with a new level of operational management challenges—often not supported by their existing IT systems and mining software. Given their size and the vast resources required during the exploration stage, Mining IT managers tend to believe that their companies would not be able to afford an implementation of a fully-fledged enterprise management system like SAP®.
Illumiti has packaged its SAP® implementation experience with small & mid-sized mining companies into a Mining solution accelerator—enabling our highly professional teams to complete typical projects at an exceptionally fast pace. Illumiti’s Mining solution accelerator includes pre-configured business processes based on industry best-practices supporting requirements in areas including Financials, Production Reporting, Procurement, Maintenance, Capital Projects, Fixed Assets and Business Intelligence. Our mining solution accelerator is built on top of SAP® Business All-in-One and is designed to facilitate rapid implementation of the software for small and medium sized Mining companies.

Addressing concerns around topics such as safety, asset utilisation, environmental and country-specific regulation, means that managing large global mining operations is an extremely complicated business. To achieve success in this competitive sector, management must have a strong grasp on all aspects of their business – from their day-to-day production statistics to equipment breakdown rates and capital project progress against budgets. Managing such varied operations can be a challenge.
