Commit Works appoints new CEO as it looks forward to another year of growth

Frontline work management software company, Commit Works, has, this week, handed over the reins to newly appointed CEO, James Aleman.

Aleman comes to Commit Works equipped with 25 years of Software-as-a-Service knowledge and experience offering solutions to a variety of asset-intensive industries including mining and construction.

Andrew Jessett, Acting CEO at Commit Works and Australasian VP at RCF Jolimont, said Aleman had been chosen from an extremely competitive field.

“James combines business acumen, software knowledge and insightful understanding of the mining industry,” Jessett said. “He also has a range of management experience and curiosity that could not be more relevant or necessary to Commit Works’ current standing and its future success.”

Commenting on his appointment, Aleman said: “Commit Works is a company with an excellent reputation, a clear ethos and a promising future. I am deeply honoured to take on the role of CEO and excited at the prospect of contributing further to the success of our longstanding clients, who have been foundational in the company’s growth.”

He added: “Commit Works’ deep relationships with its clients has underpinned the business’ success, and I’m keen to see that continue. The incredible recent growth of the company – 70% in 2021 – is testament to the endeavours of the Commit Works team. I look forward to working alongside them.”

Commit Works expands with dedicated operations in Western Australia

Australia-based Commit Works’ global expansion is continuing with the company set to open an office closer to home in Western Australia.

In recent years, the Brisbane-based company has focused its growth overseas, announcing a move into South America in 2020, following office openings in South Africa, North America and New Zealand in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Headed up by Penelope LaMers (pictured), the new office will be based in Perth.

LaMers brings international experience and expertise to her role as Western Australia Regional Lead, and will be supported by Terry Henrikson, Asia Pacific General Manager.

“There’s a growing recognition that getting teams on the same page and building more collaborative workplace cultures is crucial in building performance,” Henrikson says. “Eliminating waste caused by avoidable interruptions is central to solving this problem and relies on providing clear, accessible plans that keep everyone in the loop. This is at the heart of our Commitment System.”

Commit Works provides planning, scheduling and visual management software for the mining industry, with its flagship solution, Fewzion, enabling planners to quickly build integrated shift plans, which are provided electronically to mining and support crews, coordinating the complex work being performed throughout each shift.

“Globally, our software is playing an integral part in helping mining operations shift operational processes to close that gap between current and potential performance,” Henrikson added. “Now is the perfect time to provide even closer support for our Western Australia customers and provide additional access for overseas clients.”

Henrikson believes being on the ground in Perth will enable clients to have direct access to expert services.

“Our market-leading management software supports miners in making key changes in minimising the operational variability and unpredictability that so often stalls progress,” he says. “We strongly believe that our structured partnering approach is a vital part of our success. For companies focused on lifting performance, we will be on hand to offer help.”

Commit Works expands mining software footprint into South America

Commit Works, a mining software company headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, is continuing its expansion plans with a move into South America.

This builds on Commits Works’ growth trajectory into South Africa, North America and New Zealand in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively, and comes only seven years since the company was founded in 2013.

While Commit Works is still assessing where its new office location will be, a spokesperson confirmed it was at this stage looking into addresses in Chile or Peru.

The expansion follows the successful relationship the company has been building since December with its first South America customer, a gold mine in Argentina.

Commit Works provides planning, scheduling and visual management software for the mining industry, with its flagship solution, Fewzion, enabling planners to quickly build integrated shift plans, which are provided electronically to mining and support crews, coordinating the complex work being performed throughout each shift.

Paul Moynagh, CEO and Founder of Commit Works, said: “Expanding into South America is an incredible opportunity our entire team is thrilled to have. With our frontline productivity software and proven approach that drives commitment, trust and performance, we can help mines throughout the continent sustainably deliver hard dollar value into the business, and build a better, more collaborative culture for the entire workforce.”

The South America customer in question has been realising preliminary production improvements that are consistent with the double-digit results Commit Works has helped mines elsewhere in the world achieve, the company said. “The foundation of those outcomes has been significant reductions in variability that boost and sustain productivity,” it added.

Moynagh added: “South America has many high-value mines, and it’s important the resources are managed in the most efficient way possible. We want to help mine leaders and their entire teams do that responsibly and safely.”

Moynagh said adding a new office in the region reflected how Commit Works’ software and proven approach will help customers emerge and surge when mines fully re-open following the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Our expansion in the region is an opportunity for us to work with the area’s brightest talent to positively impact the technology and mining sectors, and help mine’s emerge from the pandemic stronger than ever,” he said.
