IFS secures ERP installation with mining company

By

Global applications company, IFS, has been contracted by listed-Australian civic construction and mining contractor, Brierty, to replace multiple systems with a single enterprise application that supports the company’s growth and future mobile strategy.

Brierty (ASX:BYL) will implement IFS Applications 8 to leverage the system’s powerful features for project management and execution control. The company will also benefit from performance-based maintenance capabilities and mobile support for its remote operations in Western Australia and the Northern Territory with IFS Touch Apps.

Brierty will implement IFS Applications 8 to leverage the system’s powerful features for project management and execution control, and will also benefit from performance-based maintenance capabilities and mobile support for its remote operations in Western Australia and the Northern Territory with IFS Touch Apps.

Brierty’s Chief Financial Officer Ian Sydney, said the company expected to make savings through “better asset utilisation, lower maintenance costs, streamlined reporting processes, and reduced software licensing and maintenance costs to achieve a return on investment within 18 months to two years.”

“Through better project management information we will be able to save on each project, and reporting times will be improved.”

IFS Australia and New Zealand Managing Director, Rob Stummer, said that by implementing IFS Applications, Brierty would gain real-time visibility of all of its business activities, including projects and assets, from a single application.

“Information about labour, equipment and materials will be entered from remote mine and construction sites directly into IFS, automatically validated and made immediately available to managers in Brierty’s Perth head office.”

Ian Sydney said that asset management & maintenance functionality was key in the decision to purchase IFS Applications after an extensive selection process involving 12 software suppliers.

“By recording all issues and handling all work orders in IFS, Brierty will improve planning for major plant maintenance and the management of backlog issues. With IFS, our plant manager in Perth can see and manage his fleet.

“If you have to do an engine rebuild for a digger in September, you can send a spare up to the mine site in July. You can also see any backlog issues and fix them when machines come in for service to avoid future problems.”

Sydney said that IFS Applications’ mobility support, including Touch Apps for iOS, Android and Windows smartphones and tablets, was also a deciding factor.

“We have a vision where all supervisors and above will have a mobile device so they can enter information and approve requisitions and orders in the field without being tied to a desk. The mobility functionality in IFS Applications will give us real-time visibility into our operations and create further efficiencies. The mobility support we saw with IFS is certainly where we want to be.” said Sydney.

Commenting on the contract win, IFS’ Stummer said that, like many services companies in the resources sector, Brierty was experiencing growth.

“Where Brierty stands out from the crowd, however, is in how it has increased its organisational maturity to deal with the risks and complexities which come with that growth. Having a single enterprise application giving the company real-time visibility of all of its business activities, regardless whether it is remotely off-site or in the office, is a key part of that.”
