A Mine of Opportunities

Rio de Janeiro, August 1st, 2018 - HMSWeb wins the first contract with the German industry group thyssenkrupp and increases its performance within the mining sector with new projects and traditional partners, such as Vale, with which it acts since 2011.

The Handover Management System (HMSWeb©) software, along with its mobile component, the HMSMobile© application, positions itself as one of the more flexible tools in the market; it works for different enterprises, from the transposition of the São Francisco River to the commissioning of large industrial plants in the most diverse markets. It was also chosen by the German industry group thyssenkrupp to support a project in the mining sector.

“This achievement consolidates and enhances our participation in this market, where we have been acting from the beginning of the decade: we started a partnership with Vale S.A. in 2011, and today HMSWeb is a mandatory solution in all its projects around the world. As a matter of fact, it has been used in several enterprises in America and Africa,” highlights Luciano Gaete, the CEO of HMSWeb Tecnologia da Informação. In addition to Vale, HMSWeb, as well as Forship, acted in the projects of several mining companies, such as Mineração Rio Norte, Ferrous Ressources do Brasil, Anglo American and Samarco.

Project might be expanded

Since February and with a duration of six months, the services performed include the licensing and implementation, setting and training of Information Technology (IT) solutions created by HMSWeb Tecnologia da Informação Ltda., a company belonging to the Forship Group. The contract covers the licensing of the HMSWeb and implementation, training and support services. However, if there was any interest from the parent company, activities might be expanded, including Forship’s engineering services.

“The client’s direction sees the need to invest in better practices and management platforms for the commissioning process. With the perspective of using our solution in other projects, new opportunities to extend this partnership may present themselves,” says Luciano Gaete.
