RPMGlobal has announced the opening of its Asset Management Centre of excellence in Perth, Western Australia.
The centre brings together personnel with a diverse range of skills focused on best practice in the asset management space and has been developed to address the rapid growth and demand of the company’s AMT software suite, with a particular focus on supporting clients and projects in Western Australia.
AMT is RPMGlobal’s asset management software which helps mining companies, contractors, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their dealers effectively manage their assets using a unique Dynamic Life Cycle Costing (DLCC) engine.
Since early 2021, RPMGlobal has been recruiting heavily for Asset Management specialists to cater for additional deployment and support skills to enhance and support the delivery of current and future demand of their Asset Management suite of solutions.
According to Richard Mathews, RPMGlobal’s CEO, the decision to base the centre in Perth made sense on several fronts.
“Perth became an obvious choice due to the highly sought-after skills and experience of the recruitment pool as well as the time zone with a number of our bigger customers and users of the software.”
RPMGlobal secured a marked increase in new organisations using the software in the last twelve months and is making room for a heightened period of growth, in particular from its Western Australian customers.
“Perth makes sense not just for Western Australia but also several globally strategic projects. We are expanding for what is a significant period of growth across our business, particularly in the AMT space," said Mathews.
The upward trajectory builds on a big 2020 for the Perth team where a major renovation of RPMGlobal’s Perth office was completed, adding another floor and unveiling a dedicated Customer Experience Centre to support the company’s growth in the local market.
Mathews said this latest period of accelerated growth across its Western Australian customer base is in line with securing major sales and accelerating development of new products and services.
“Our intention is always to have a very strong local support network for our customers and the increased investment in our Perth footprint is a strong reflection of that commitment,” he said.
The company’s organic expansion coincides with a period of increased market confidence and positive industry outlook, coupled with a sharp focus on innovation from major mining companies.
“It’s certainly an exciting time for the mining industry and we have seen Perth, in particular, emerge as a digital and innovation mining hub,” Mathews said.
“Our Perth Asset Management Centre demonstrates our strong commitment to the region and providing our growing customer base with technology solutions that unlock long-term value across the mining value chain.”
With the company’s growth in full swing, RPMGlobal says the company has hired and will continue making a strong hiring push across several exciting technology and engineering roles to cater for the increased demand.
