Australia: Trimble has acquired privately-held Mining Information Systems (MIS), headquartered in Perth, Australia. The acquisition will add enterprise-level information management capabilities to Trimble's portfolio of mining solutions. These enterprise-level capabilities can enable improved productivity, profitability, and safety by providing a more complete view of geospatial, productivity, workforce and cost data across functional areas to support operational and strategic decision making.
MIS provides information systems for data required for enterprise-wide monitoring and management of mining and ore processing operations. MIS systems collect and integrate data across functional areas and sources, regardless of data origin. Trimble claims that this capability combined with Trimble's geospatial solutions can provide increased mine productivity through the aggregation, analysis and presentation of information that enables better decision making for mining customers.
