As recently announced, the IMS business, including MineScape, MineMarket, Production Accounting and CCLAS, has been acquired by Datamine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Constellation Software (TSX: CSU).
With over 5,000 existing customers, Datamine is entirely focused on software required to seamlessly plan and manage mining operations. Spanning from exploration data and resource modelling, to open pit and underground mine planning, Datamine has the widest portfolio of software solutions covering the entire mining value chain. With this new acquisition comes a stronger offering for our users and helps us provide more solutions to the industry’s most pressing problems. With offices in 18 countries providing services to customer sites in over 100 countries, the new addition of the IMS team of over 80 staff will ensure the most seamless transition from ABB to Datamine.
The IMS products are highly complementary to the existing Datamine product range with minimal overlap. All IMS products will continue to be actively developed and supported, and Datamine is excited about the opportunity to take these technologies to additional geographies and improve integration between products for a more seamless user experience. We have always taken pride in our ability to offer reliable solutions for niche problems and markets within the industry and this acquisition will not only complement, but strengthen Datamine’s software portfolio, further increasing our competitive edge within the industry. MineMarket and Production Accounting is a substantial addition to Datamine’s supply chain portfolio for the areas of trading, logistics and marketing of mineral commodities, MineScape extends our current geological modelling and mine design capabilities, and CCLAS offers an intelligent and comprehensive laboratory management system; a perfect addition to our current suite of data management solutions.
