The partnership will enable RPM and Chasm to further develop an integration between the Chasm mine ventilation software Ventsim and RPM’s underground software solutions.
RPM’s underground software solutions have excellent functionality and performance, providing a platform for successful mine planning in underground mines around the world. With the latest in technology innovation at the core of RPM’s software solutions, partnering with Chasm for best-of-breed ventilation software was a natural fit.
RPM stated that it is through the connected, digital mine that mining companies will be able to reduce costs, maximise operations, increase productivity and deliver shareholder value. Its solutions have always put the mining enterprise at the centre to ensure that information across the entire mining value chain is not siloed but shared empowering stakeholders across the business to make informed decisions about their operations. The company added that this integration partnership illustrates RPM’s continual drive to only deliver enterprise wide solutions.
Chasm Consulting’s Ventsim underground mining ventilation software was originally introduced to mining operations in 1994 to help visually design, improve and optimise underground ventilation systems. It is now licensed to over 1,000 mine sites, consultants, universities, governments and research agencies around the world.
Under the integration agreement, RPM and Chasm will collaboratively develop tight integration between RPM’s underground solutions and Chasm’s Ventsim solution, allowing joint customers to quickly simulate mine ventilation as the mine develops.
Richard Mathews, CEO and managing director at RPM, commented: “We are pleased to have entered into the software integration agreement and partnership with Chasm Consulting that will allow RPM and Chasm to continue their work to develop the integration between our market leading solutions.”
Mathews concluded: “With over 1.000 customers of the Ventsim solution, they are clearly the industry leader in underground mine ventilation and we look forward to furthering the integration of our respective products to deliver real value to our underground mining customers in delivering the digital mine.”
