Mining Information Systems (MIS)

Trimble has acquired the Perth-based, privately-held Mining Information Systems (MIS), without disclosing financial terms.

The acquisition will add information management capabilities to Trimble’s existing portfolio of mining solutions.

MIS provides information systems for data required for enterprise-wide monitoring and management of mining and ore processing operations. MIS systems collect and integrate data across functional areas and sources, regardless of data origin.

“Productivity applications in functional areas such as drill and blast, haulage, and materials processing have improved operational efficiencies, but the value of this data has not been fully realised since it is not readily collected and integrated for a complete, site-wide view,” said Nathan Pugh, business area director of Trimble’s Mining Division. “MIS offers an enterprise-level system that unlocks data and metrics from across functional areas for a complete view of mine productivity and profitability for decision-makers across planning, operations and finance.

“Trimble offers high levels of accuracy in geospatial solutions today and with the enterprise-level mine information platform, we can increase the use and value of geospatial data and other data sources for our customers.”

“We share Trimble’s vision that mines can be more productive, more profitable, and safer with improved reporting and use of geospatial technology, productivity, product quality, risk and cost information at the enterprise level,” said David Prance, managing director of MIS. “Trimble’s leadership and expertise in geospatial technologies will be integral to productivity and inventory control applications in the resources sector.”
