Newest Version of Gemcom InSite Further Streamlines Data Management and Helps Improve Operational EfficiencyInSite 4.1 Provides New Production Calendars, Efficient Data Entry, Enhanced Security (March 20, 2012)
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/12 -- Gemcom Software International Inc., the largest global supplier of mining software solutions, today announced that it has released the latest version of its award-winning Gemcom InSite(TM) mine production management solution. InSite records and evaluates data for service, support and production activities from the mine through to saleable product, providing confidence in data accuracy, and visibility into all areas of production.
InSite 4.1 assists in improving the day-to-day operating processes of both open pit and underground mines. Its new Production Calendar module solves challenges relating to the difficulty operations may face with aligning forecast with actual production data. It does this by providing the ability to import or generate one or multiple calendars to map an operation's yearly calendar. The Production Calendar module, along with other new and enhanced InSite 4.1 product features deliver to mining operations increased scheduling accuracy, data confidence and data security.
"Mining organisations continue to be heavily focused on increasing production, while at the same time lowering costs," said Charlie Forrest, product manager for InSite. "The newest version of InSite assists operations in meeting these objectives by providing tools to manage their mine production data faster and more accurately, while the Production Calendar module provides significant time savings and increased scheduling efficiency."
Additional InSite 4.1 benefits include:
- Improved site based security allows each site to configure different access levels to data depending on roles and their individual requirements.
- Ease-of-use enhancements to the Data Entry module, including a new user interface, make additions and updates faster and more intuitive.
- Extended data validation capabilities include the ability to handle extensive validation of location types, equipment types, and material types, ensuring data is clean and meets business rules.
"The mining industry continues to face issues such as skills shortages and variable commodity supply and demand. InSite 4.1 helps to relieve the skills shortage by reliably collating and managing production data, thereby allowing staff to spend their time in the operation rather than managing data. Additionally, to address the commodity supply and demand issue, InSite's production management tools assist operations to maximise production efficiently with greater accuracy," said Allen Vaughn, executive vice president of Gemcom's enterprise business unit.
"We selected InSite because Gemcom sought to understand what we were trying to achieve and offered us the right combination of software capabilities and expertise," commented Ben Young, technical services manager for Zinc Open Pit Operations.
