PRESS RELEASE: From today, MinVu’s entire suite of products specialising in mining performance management and production information will now form part of RPM’s software business.
With this acquisition of MinVu, RPM stated that it continues to demonstrate its determination to deliver a complete commercial off-the-shelf enterprise platform for the mining industry. This platform, built on open industry standards, delivers a significant step change in optimising the mining value chain through innovation and technology. A key focus of RPM has been to provide its customers with real time plan vs actual reporting and the MinVu products have capabilities that add real value in this area.
Richard Mathews, RPM’s CEO and managing director, commented: “We are pleased to have finalised the acquisition of MinVu and officially welcome the MinVu employees into the RPM team. We look forward to accelerating the integration of our joint development teams so as to deliver the most advanced single vendor fully automated short interval control system in the industry. This solution will assist our customers in their drive to reduce their cost of mining through the monitoring of live data feeds originating from their operational systems and tracking performance of their equipment in real-time.”
Mike Taylor, co-founder and director of MinVu, said: “It has been very pleasing to see the overwhelmingly positive feedback from MinVu’s customers and staff to the acquisition announced in December 2017. Jack and I, together with the rest of the MinVu team, look forward to working with Richard and his team to bring together our complementary software offerings for the benefit of our customers.”
