Sodexo showcases latest mining technology

Facility management company Sodexo has showcased its latest solution for mining at Microsoft’s Ignite conference in Florida, United States.

Sodexo continues to evolve the development of the Integrated Facilities Management System (IFMS) one year into its full implementation.

The adoption of the platform is helping to deliver increased productivity, greater efficiency and improved safety outcomes for clients, customers and employees.

Sodexo, through its partnership with Perth-based tech provider Velrada, developed the innovative solution by utilising Microsoft Dynamics 365.

The solution features real-time data analytics and reporting dashboard.

According to Sodexo, it has already resulted in millions of dollars of savings for clients, while also providing transparency and oversight of performance.

The technology has enabled a seamless integration of FM services that previously consisted of multiple contracts across numerous locations and services.

Mining operations can be monitored and managed in some of the most remote environments anywhere in the world by using the cloud technology.

Sodexo Mining Worldwide chief executive Paul Bean said the company was leading the mining FM industry in the development and implementation of new solutions that use leading technology.

“As early adopters we see this digital platform playing a key role in supporting the transformation of business process to drive productivity, growth and new insights,” Bean said.

“Oversight is paramount in a geographically dispersed business, in any industry the speed to action and reacting to emerging trends is critical and often defines performance.

“The technology ensures that we rely less on industry norms and more on a balance of evidence and learning which in turn de-livers greater certainty of results.”

The Ignite event was attended by more than 26,000 business and technology experts and live streamed to an audience of more than 1.3 million.
