Responsible mining operations foster collaboration between a number of groups that focus on the environmental and social impact of the operations.  Responsible operations take into account the impact on the local community, biodiversity, energy and climate change, and waste management. When handled well, this collaboration can lead to success for both the mining business and the local economy.  In order to promote responsible mining projects, you need the support of a powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

A mining project has a big impact on the surrounding area.  To make that impact a positive one, mining companies need to develop strong relationships with local community and government representatives.  Mining projects must also comply with many human rights, environmental, waste management, and governmental regulations.  Different types of data and reports are often required, and transparency is critical when showing compliance with these regulatory guidelines.  You can’t trust disparate specialty software or paper-based systems to capture reliable data needed for mine management or compliance activities.  A strong, integrated ERP solution is necessary for managing successful mining operations and supporting compliance and transparency.

You can use ERP to manage data from all aspects of your mining operations including financials, inventory and supply chain, mining activities, and other data needed for compliance. An easy-to-use ERP solution can promote effective data entry and reporting to provide real-time information about the various aspects of mining activities.  Built-in business intelligence functionality offers an easier way to analyze data and identify trends that you can use to further streamline operations to improve productivity, cost control and regulatory compliance.  In addition, robust reporting features make it even easier to analyze and share the data needed by regulatory agencies to show compliance with various environmental, waste management, and other governmental regulations.  Responding promptly, with accurate data to local community groups, governmental, or other regulatory agencies shows good faith efforts to maintain compliance with laws and regulations.

Develop closer ties and make a positive impact with the community while operating a successful mining project.  Contact Caron Business Solutions to learn how you can promote responsible mining operations with ERP.
