Toronto, ON (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Illumiti announced today the successful “go live” of the SAP® Business All-in-One solution that it implemented for Lundin Mining.
Lundin Mining is a diversified base metals mining company with operations and projects in Portugal, Sweden, Spain and the US.A, producing copper, zinc, lead and nickel. In addition, Lundin Mining holds a 24% equity stake in the world-class Tenke Fungurume copper/cobalt mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo and in the Freeport Cobalt Oy business, which includes a cobalt refinery located in Kokkola, Finland.
The new SAP Business All-in-One solution, which includes SAP Worksforce Performance Builder software, ERP and business intelligence (BI) software from SAP, was implemented for Lundin’s Eagle Mine, located in Marquette County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and will enable Lundin to better manage, track and analyze key performance indicators associated with their mining operations.
This implementation will enable Eagle Mine to optimize its operations and provide integrated management of key functions at the core of their business, including: financial accounting, project controls, procurement, inventory management, plant maintenance, and employee health and safety.
Lundin Mining chose Illumiti as its implementation partner because of its track record working with mining companies, and its proven ability to support mining related operations.
"After we acquired Eagle Mine, a copper/nickel mine under development, there was a need to implement SAP software quickly and with industry-proven best-practices, so that we could focus on bringing the mine into production on or ahead of schedule. Illumiti has earned an impressive reputation for successful, accelerated SAP implementations in the mining industry” said Quentin Cobb, Corporate IT General Manager for Lundin Mining. “We are confident that our new solution will help us better manage the development project, and we are looking forward to scaling the product to support a fully producing mine efficiently."
The go-live leveraged Illumiti’s Mining solution accelerator, which is designed to facilitate rapid implementation of the software for small and medium sized mining companies. The solution enables Illumiti’s clients to leverage pre-configured processes, best practices and mining industry expertise.
“Our implementation went very well and was completed in just 16 weeks - a world-class speed of delivery," said Ben Rose, CFO, Eagle Mine. "The project team did a great job to ensure that a quality system was delivered on time and on budget."
