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.
