RPMGlobal (RPM) has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Quartile One. This partnership will afford the mining industry with unique value: 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, for a large, heavy earthmoving 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.”
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. Therefore, accelerating the maintenance management maturity curve.”
AMT is one of RPMGlobal’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 contractors and original equipment manufacturers continue to strive for more sophisticated asset management strategies, this growth will continue.
Within the partnership, RPM’s software, deployment and integration services are bolstered by Quartile One’s expertise in change management, training and support to ensure RPMGlobal 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 strategy.
Batkin added: “The main goal of any major software implementation project is to improve processes and maximise system integration with minimal disruption. RPM has joined efforts with Quartile One – now we can jointly offer best practice asset management knowledge and change management expertise to achieve that goal.”
Since RPM and Quartile One began working together in May 2018, they have completed the successful rollout of AMT to a large mining contractor and are now working together in Australia and in the Ukraine.
“RPMGlobal has long recognised the importance of strategic partnerships and the Quartile One partnership is another of our strategic decisions and will further cement RPM as the industry leader in the space of intelligent mining,” said Batkin.
