Global mining software company and specialist in geoscientific information management (GIM) solutions, acQuire Technology Solutions Pty Ltd (acQuire), has released the latest version of its drillhole and sample data management software – GIM Suite 3. New features in GIM Suite 3 add to the array of capabilities already available in the software, creating an even more robust and secure system to manage geoscientific data assets. Reducing manual tasks and making data management more efficient were the key focus of this release.
Geoscientific data is a strategic asset for resources companies providing a solid foundation for decisions in exploration, asset development and production. Well informed decisions need to be based on reliable data from a single source of truth. However, consolidating and managing drillhole data often requires manually running a large number of tasks.
A major advance of the latest GIM Suite release is the introduction of automation to reduce time spent on repetitive and manual tasks such as importing and exporting data. Automation in acQuire’s software not only improves time management by reducing manually-run tasks, but also provides a more robust means for automating them. With status update notifications and a simple scheduling and setup wizard, there is greater visibility and control over automated jobs.
The result – greater team productivity by giving companies more timely access to data for confident decision making. Steve Mundell, Director of Product, acQuire Technology Solutions said, “GIM Suite 3 continues to build on our commitment to providing market-leading software. In the context of the current climate in exploration and mining, this latest release delivers more efficiencies to our customers through automation and simplification. We always recommend our customers upgrade to the latest software release as soon as possible to ensure they get the most out of their technology and can take full advantage of the improvements.”
In addition to the new automation capabilities of the software, enhancements have also been made to data imports, quality control analysis, licence management and workspace synchronisation. Other key features of the GIM Suite 3 release include:
- GIM Suite 3 has simplified and made data importing more robust for individual and large numbers of files to remove the risk of loading erroneous or incomplete data sets.
- Licence availability is improved with inactive floating licences able to be automatically returned to the licence pool.
- With new visualisations and statistical measures, quality control of analytical results is improved to provide an easier way to identify quality issues.
