Fusion Training Sessions
The most recent Fusion User Conference held in December, 2019 at our Johannesburg office was a great success. The room was filled with Fusion users including four of the top major South African Gold companies. Users had the opportunity to experience the new features included in the newest release of Fusion during the hands-on event. The session also doubled up as a great catch-up session with like-minded industry professionals who were happy to share their ideas. We would like to thank everyone who attended and helped make this session a great success!

Touching Base With Our Customers
The Fusion R&D team recently had an opportunity to spend time with representatives from Vale Brazil. It was great to share ideas about future improvements to technology, deployment and functionality. There was good alignment on the product road map, and Datamine looks forward to working with Vale on upcoming releases to put these enhancements into the hands of the end users.
Our team is confident that we have taken the appropriate measures to increase the value our clients are getting from their investment through annual maintenance. These productive meetings allow us to align the added value of Fusion with our customer’s expectations and needs in mind.
A huge thank you goes out to our Brazilian team for organizing this meeting with Vale. It was a pleasure meeting the staff at Vale and finally being able to associate a face to those that we have communicated with only via email and phone over the years.
We have every intention on working more closely with our customers than ever before!
