Kazzinc, a Glencore majority owned company, one of the largest zinc miners in the world, and the largest gold miner in Kazakhstan, have chosen RPMGlobal and Enterchain to help them continue to be one of the world’s most cost efficient zinc producers.
Kazzinc have selected RPMGlobal and their Enterprise Planning Platform, which will be implemented in conjunction with SAP. This enterprise approach not only complements their planned investment in SAP but will also deliver the operational planning behaviours that mining companies need to adopt in order to be world-class mining enterprises that deliver the value expected by both the market and shareholders.
Richard Mathews, CEO of RPMGlobal, commented “Over the last six months Kazzinc management have provided us with the opportunity to really understand their mining environment and we thank them for that. We are absolutely committed to ensuring that our software supports the productivity improvements they are striving to achieve. I firmly believe that continuous data interchange between the mining industries’ two major software providers will drive operational and financial benefits right across Kazzinc’s business.”
Data will be exchanged seamlessly between the systems using RPMGlobal’s SAP certified integration. Kazzinc will use the strength of SAP’s Hana platform combined with RPM’s budgeting and forecasting system to deliver Operational, Plant and Maintenance budgets and life of mine forecasts.
Kazzinc will also implement RPMGlobal scheduling and simulation applications in their open pit and underground operations which will seamlessly link into the budgeting solutions.
Adoption of these digital tools and capabilities from RPMGlobal will deliver Kazzinc improved operating efficiency as well as the capability to develop and deliver more accurate and agile planning in real-time thereby assisting to maximise profit and performance across their mining value chain.
Nick Popovic, Chairman of Kazzinc Holdings, said “While we have been impressed with RPMGlobal’s knowledge of mining, what has impressed us most is the commitment they have shown to understanding our business and the innovative approach they have taken to developing software that is extremely user focused. They clearly see Kazzinc (along with the other Glencore operations they are working with) as a Partner, rather than a customer, and we look forward to this successful collaboration.”
The project will be rolled out across the Kazzinc operations which includes four underground mines, two open pit mines, a concentrator plant as well as their central planning office.
