Case Study: MonitorPro
International Mining Organisation integrates SAP Environmental Compliance with MonitorPro
Founded in 2009, this international minerals and resource company operates copper, zinc and other base metals projects across Australia, Africa and South America. Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, this major mining organisation is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and Australian Securities Exchange. They are loyal and proud employers and are commited to international standards and respect for people, environment and culture.
The MonitorPro environmental management system is an integral part of the overall environmental strategy.
During 2012, the process of implementing the SAP business intelligence software across its the main organisation business, including the SAP Environmental Compliance (SAP EC) module began. Not wishing to lose the superior usability and functionality of MonitorPro, the decision was taken at multiple mining operations mines to continue to manage their data collection and analysis processes using MonitorPro. The final selection of data required by SAP for reporting purposes, therefore, needed to be exported from MonitorPro to the SAP system.
To enable the export of data to SAP, EHS Data developed a customised export that can be recognised by the SAP software. MonitorPro’s User Defined Fields (UDFs) were used to ensure that naming conventions translate between the two systems.
Finally, the existing Scheduled Task function in MonitorPro was used to set up a regular export of the required selection of data to SAP, with no human intervention required.
The integration of the two systems allows the environmental professionals at the mines to continue using MonitorPro to manage their monitoring and data in the same way as previously. This allows the continuation of simple and user-friendly scheduling of monitoring, importing of data, and the use of a myriad of specialist tools for analysis and reporting. MonitorPro automatically looks after the export of relevant data to SAP EC, where this is required for reporting across the business.
