The Strategic Partnership between RPMGlobal (RPM ®) and Quartile One the company’s state will give the mining industry unique access to RPM’s best practice asset management software aligned with Quartile One’s proven data driven asset performance perspective across the mining value chain. RPM and Quartile One began working together to support the implementation of AMT, RPM’s Asset Management software, within a large heavy earth moving equipment fleet customer. Adam Smith, Chief Operations Officer at Quartile One, said: “By combining RPM’s class leading software with Quartile One’s deep asset management expertise, our clients’ will be able to access an integrated offering that will assist them to take their asset performance to the next level.”
AMT is one of RPM’s fastest growing software solutions and has been deployed globally. More than half of the world’s mining industry’s heavy machinery and operations are managed through this solution; as mine operators, contractors and OEMs continue to strive for more sophisticated asset management strategies, this growth is expected to continue.
David Batkin, RPM’s Executive General Manager of Technology Consulting and Partners stated, “It is essential to identify and work with the industry’s leaders to deliver the best offering for the mining industry. AMT is widely recognised within the industry as the premier Asset Management Software and when deployed with the expertise of Quartile One, it allows an operation to move away from a reactive or preventative maintenance management to a proactive strategy, and thus accelerating customers’ up the maintenance management maturity curve”.
“Within the partnership, RPM’s software, deployment and integration services are bolstered with Quartile One’s expertise in change management, training and support to ensure RPM’s software rollouts are implemented smoothly. When you combine the power of the data within AMT with the insight of Quartile One’s expert team, data becomes information, and the value unlocked is the holy grail in asset management.”
Batkin emphasises: “The main goal of any major software implementation project is to deliver value through improved processes and optimised system integration with minimal disruption. RPM’s partnership with Quartile One enables the parties to jointly offer best practice asset management knowledge and change management expertise to now achieve that goal.”
Since RPM and Quartile One began working together in July 2018, they have completed the successful rollout of AMT to one of the largest mining fleets in the world and are now working together in both Australia and in the Ukraine. “RPM has long recognised the importance of strategic partnerships and the Quartile One partnership is another strategic decision that will further cement RPM as the industry leader in the space of intelligent mining”, says Batkin.
