A new partnership between acQuire and ALS Minerals is set to revolutionise the way miners and explorers assess and analyse sampling information and results. The partnership integrates the powerful data management tools produced by acQuire’s GIM Suite with ALS Mineral’s Webtrieve™ to allow easy and fast access of project data.
PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA — 31 August, 2016 — acQuire Technology Solutions Pty Ltd (acQuire), global specialists in Geoscientific Information Management (GIM), and ALS Limited, one of the world’s largest and most diversified testing services providers, announce a partnership to create a better and more consolidated view across the two companies’ technology products.
The first initiative between the two companies allows acQuire customers, using the latest release of the GIM Suite software, to access core images from the ALS CoreViewerTM image library in the GIM Suite dashboard. The integration gives users quick and easy access to comparisons of all project data, such as lithology, assays, geotechnical data and core images.
“We’re really excited by the integration with ALS Mineral’s Webtrieve™ and the additional value it will give our customers”, said Steve Mundell, Director of Product at acQuire.
“ALS Limited’s Minerals Division is part of acQuire’s extensive technology partnership program. This program enables us to strategically focus on providing effective connectivity with third party software vendors to benefit our customers. We’ve already partnered with companies including Esri, Geosoft, ARANZ Geo, Maptek and Geovariances.
“Through these partnerships, acQuire’s GIM Suite is able to give miners and explorers the most complete and immediate data possible — allowing them to make faster decisions and undertake the sort of detailed planning the industry requires”.
