acQuire welcomes new environmental data management software, EnviroSys
The acquisition of the environmental data management system, EnviroSys, in December 2020, adds a versatile environmental compliance management and monitoring solution to acQuire’s existing product suite. EnviroSys is highly complementary to acQuire’s flagship product, GIM Suite, and strengthens acQuire’s competitive edge and position as an industry leader in geoscientific information management solutions for the natural resources industries.
A new coronavirus, COVID-19, spread rapidly across the world with strict travel restrictions implemented early in 2020 still in force throughout the year. Strict lockdowns were implemented across countries in a bid to contain the virus which impacted the mining industry globally, from scaled back operations to the need to cease for a while, depending on the local government regulations.
acQuire responded quickly to the pandemic, with employees working from home from March onwards while continuing to deliver the same high quality acQuire products and services virtually and where possible, in-person, as restrictions eased in some jurisdictions.
GIM Suite’s web and mobile capabilities extended
Mobile blasthole sampling and logging was introduced across two minor software releases for GIM Suite. Geologists and pit techs working in blasthole grade control can now rapidly collect data from the pit on mobile devices and seamlessly transfer it back to their main database.
New GIM Suite technology integration
In November, acQuire announced a collaboration with Imago, a technology company dedicated to providing high-performance viewing of geological core and chip images from any location. The new integration gives GIM Suite customers the ability to view high-quality images alongside their geoscientific data and was launched in GIM Suite 4.3.
