Major inefficiencies with site accommodation and canteen management across two large mining complexes.
The COVID-19 global pandemic further exposed these systems with high workforce infection rates and significant headcount and roster fluctuations. The objective is to have a single, consolidated, integrated, and simple environment that will unlock efficiencies and value in processes.
