Eldorado Gold integrates Chinese mines into global SAP® Business All-in-One environment

December 17, 2013

Canadian international gold producer Eldorado Gold Corporation (TSX: ELD, NYSE: EGO ASX: EAU) recently completed the implementation of its SAP Business All-in-One system in the four mines it operates in China and in its Beijing head office. The company’s Chinese mines include Jinfeng, Eastern Dragon, White Mountain and Tianjianshan.

Illumiti was tasked with delivering the project, having successfully implemented SAP Business All-in-One for Eldorado Gold’s corporate headquarters in Canada as well as its operations in Turkey. Illumiti applied the system blueprint previously developed for Eldorado Gold using its SAP-certified “Accelerated ERP for Mining” solution. Illumiti worked with IMG China as its local partner, bringing the system into live operation in two stages, on April 4th and May 2nd, 2011.

The live system supports financial management, control and materials management for all implemented sites, as well as maintenance, human resources management and payroll for all operational mines. It was implemented on-time and under budget at all locations within a 6.5-month timeframe. Long Trinh, Operations Controller, Eldorado Gold Corporation, China said: “With their experienced and skilled staff Illumiti was able to provide invaluable guidance to the local consulting team in rolling out the Eldorado Gold company template. They kept the project on schedule and when big or small issues arose they provided technical and business knowledge to quickly resolve the issues.”

Now that the system is live, Eldorado Gold China expects to see benefits from integrated and consistent business processes throughout the organization. They also expect to benefit from being able to satisfy Chinese local and central reporting requirements as well as being able to comply with IFRS reporting standards.
