Queensland Energy Resources improves end-to-end asset management system and significantly reduces internal IT costs with IBM Enterprise Asset Management solutions
Queensland Energy Resources (QER) is an integrated resources and energy company based in Queensland, Australia. QER holds mining and other tenement rights to several of the largest and potentially most productive oil shale deposits in Australia.
In the rapidly changing business environment of the resources and energy sector, QER needed access to asset management features available in the latest version of the IBM Maximo Asset Management software without business interruption. An integrated asset management system with procure to pay and an integrated contracts module was key to QER requirements.
With the assistance of BPD Zenith (AUST), QER upgraded to the latest version of Maximo software, assisting it to accurately manage key assets in the QER Technology Demonstration Plant. Maximo is designed to enable fast and accurate management of assets and seamlessly facilitate supplier and procurement management.
The end-to-end asset management system has already delivered improvements in staff productivity and significant reductions in internal IT costs for QER. The resources and energy company is now working with BPD Zenith to achieve further productivity gains through process automation.
