The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-01-18T05:55:05Z National Group and BHP pair up in more ways than one to bring in the New Year 2019-01-18T05:55:05Z national-group-and-bhp-pair-up-in-more-ways-than-one-to-bring-in-the-new-year The National Group have closed out a record breaking 2018 and started 2019 off with a bang by delivering a pair of brand new Excavators into Queensland’s Bowen Basin. The first of these Excavators, a Hitachi EX5600, was added to BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance’s (BMA) Peak Downs site where the National Group handed over five Liebherr Ultra-Class T 282C Trucks in September of 2018. The second Excavator, a Liebherr R 996B, was delivered to its sister mine Poitrel, part of BHP’s other Queensland joint venture, BHP Mitsui Coal (BMC). The excavator is the first piece of equipment that National Group has at the coal mine. Founder and Managing Director of the National Group, Mark Ackroyd, was there in person to hand over the keys at both locations and was very pleased to further contribute to their already strong relationship established with BHP. “We have been working with BHP for some time now, especially at Peak Downs, so to be adding more equipment there is a testament to the machines we currently have operating for them and speaks volumes of our team on-site who do a great job with maintenance when needed,” he says. “Poitrel on the other hand, we are very excited to be adding our first piece of equipment there and for it to be the ever reliable Liebherr 996 digger. We’re confident they are going to love this machine and hope it is just the beginning of things to come,” says Ackroyd. As you can imagine, bringing such big equipment down under is a very complex process and one that requires a lot of aspects to go right, which is where National Group differentiates themselves from most. They have the capabilities to handle all transport, assembly and delivery, giving their customers peace of mind when securing these long-term rentals. “We know how difficult it can be to get the bigger gear to Australia first of all, let alone having to worry about everything else once it arrives here. That is why we have worked very hard to build brands that complement each other in the entire journey of Port-to-Pit,” Ackroyd explains. National Group are coming off one of their best years to date, however they show no signs of slowing down in 2019 with future plans already to invest in technology and enter the automation space. “The mining industry is now following the technology trend around the world and automation is at the forefront of this, says Ackroyd. “It is all about finding different ways to help your customers succeed and embracing innovation to get that edge over competitors.

News: Industry 4.0 Innovator Launches Free Tool to Help Manufacturing and Industrial Businesses Save Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Each Year 2018-12-05T01:31:17Z news-industry-4-0-innovator-launches-free-tool-to-help-manufacturing-and-industrial-businesses-save-hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars-each-year Brisbane, December 5, 2018 - MOVUS, the developer and provider of the FitMachine® IIoT solution, has launched a free tool to help asset owners, reliability and maintenance teams, operations and technology executives quickly estimate the financial benefits of condition-based maintenance (vs. reactive and preventive maintenance) in their organisation. Built by engineers for engineers, MOVUS’ ROI Calculator provides either a basic or advanced interface to help professionals understand the potential cost savings they could make by minimising unplanned downtime and reducing maintenance costs, while extending equipment lifetime. The ROI calculator is a quick and easy to use resource for maintenance staff, planners, plant and production managers, operations professionals and executives to develop a business case for condition-based maintenance in their organisations. MOVUS also provides easy-to-adopt, tangible solutions via its FitMachine® sensor and dashboard to then deliver on these efficiencies for those keen to establish a condition-based maintenance strategy, but don’t know how or where to start. “As the voice of the Industry 4.0 technology in Australia, we are committed to educating the relevant industries on the benefits - financial, operational and environmental - of condition-based equipment maintenance,” said Brad Parsons, Co-Founder and CEO of MOVUS. “We are simultaneously dedicated to then delivering the actual solutions needed to achieve these outcomes. We have done this by developing the most cost-effective, and easy-to-use and technologically advanced solution in our FitMachine platform. Businesses can literally save hundreds of thousands of dollars by moving to condition monitoring, so it’s a no brainer to instigate an initiative like this.” FitMachine is a condition-based maintenance solution that detects machine failures in advance using artificial intelligence and machine learning. The solution comprises an industrial wireless bluetooth sensor, industrial gateway, mobile application, analytics and trending dashboards, and artificial intelligence engine. The system automatically monitors equipment 24x7 and learns what the normal operation of machinery is to detect any abnormalities and alert the organisation before failures occur. The insights provided are machine health, degradation, utilisation, energy consumption and more.

ORIX’s new Innovation GM is ready to drive further transformation 2018-11-25T23:35:40Z orixs-new-innovation-gm-is-ready-to-drive-further-transformation Sydney, Australia – November 26, 2018 – ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) has announced that Richard Hilliard has joined the team as General Manager, Technology and Innovation of ORIX Australia. Known for its willingness to push new boundaries in digital transformation, ORIX was recognised in the AFR Most Innovative Companies list in 2017 and 2018. Hilliard will lead the fleet management company through the next stage of its digital journey, overseeing all platforms, integrations and internal processes to manage the large volumes of fleet data ORIX provides to its customers through its client platform, OneView. “We see innovation as a commitment to providing better client outcomes, and it’s embedded in all aspects of our culture,” commented Reggie Cabal, CEO and Managing Director of ORIX Australia & NZ. “With Richard’s background in financial services and digital transformation, we’re looking forward to further challenging old ways of working in the fleet industry.” Hilliard spent the last three years leading digital transformation at Aussie Home Loans, and has over 20 years’ experience in delivering complex change across the financial services sector.

Truckline to focus on facilities investment 2018-11-20T04:08:21Z truckline-to-focus-on-facilities-investment Hi There , Rimini Street Expands Investment and Operations in Asia-Pacific 2018-11-16T00:48:31Z rimini-street-expands-investment-and-operations-in-asia-pacific AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, November 16, 2018 – Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, and the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products, today announced that it has expanded its operations in the Asia-Pacific region with the launch of its new subsidiary, Rimini Street New Zealand Limited, and the opening of its new office in Auckland to address the growing demand for Rimini Street’s premium, ultra-responsive support services in New Zealand. Rimini Street’s expansion was announced at a gala event held at The Northern Club in Auckland, where clients, local IT leaders and the special guest of honor, Ambassador Scott P. Brown, the U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, were hosted by Rimini Street’s general manager for Asia-Pacific, Andrew Powell, and Rimini Street corporate senior executives. Growing demand for IT optimisation and a business-driven IT roadmap Rimini Street launched its new subsidiary in response to the region’s increasing desire for software support solutions that can help optimise their IT spend and enable them to liberate significant funding for their business transformation initiatives. Rimini Street already supports nearly 50 clients with operations in New Zealand, including local brands James Pascoe, Spark, 2Degrees Mobile, Refining New Zealand and The University of Auckland. By switching to Rimini Street support from the vendor’s support, organisations have saved up to 90 percent of the total cost of maintenance of their SAP and Oracle software assets and are able to run their current ERP releases with no forced upgrades for a minimum of 15 years from the date they switched support. Rimini Street clients also benefit from the Company’s flexible, premium-level enterprise software support model, including its industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) of 15-minute response times for critical Priority 1 cases. In addition, each client is assigned a Primary Support Engineer (PSE) with an average of 15 years’ experience in their particular enterprise software system, backed by a broader team of technical experts. By switching their support to Rimini Street, organisations are able to take back control of their IT roadmaps with a ”business-driven roadmap” strategy that provides much more flexibility and value compared to the vendor roadmap, allowing CIOs to focus on creating value and providing competitive advantage for growth. “Organisations in New Zealand, both public and private, spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year on their annual enterprise software support and maintenance, yet see little return from this significant spend,” said Andrew Powell, general manager, Asia-Pacific, Rimini Street. “Our conversations with CIOs are squarely focused on how we can help them dramatically lower the total cost of ownership of their stable, mature enterprise systems as part of a hybrid computing model and business-driven roadmap, and as a result, we are experiencing increased demand in the region. With Rimini Street, organisations have the option to break free from the seemingly never-ending upgrade cycle dictated by the vendor’s roadmap – an expensive and disruptive path for companies to undertake just to stay fully supported. With our new operation in Auckland, we are better able to engage with and support organisations in New Zealand who want to significantly cut their software support spend and take back control of their IT roadmaps.” Region at risk of “falling behind” on innovation Recent research from Vanson Bourne, commissioned by Rimini Street, found that enterprises in the ANZ region plan to spend the second-least amount on IT innovation in the world in the next 12 months, and they plan to increase their IT innovation spend by just 6.31% in the 12 months following the survey, well below the global average of 10.94%. “New Zealand is famous for innovation, but it is at risk of falling behind the rest of the world,” continued Powell. “New Zealand CIOs know that it’s important to spend their IT budgets on more than daily operations. With budget pressures between operating costs and the need to invest in innovation, CIOs need to reassess the value of existing support arrangements and explore better software support options designed to provide a greater ROI. Rimini Street enables CIOs in New Zealand to unlock significant savings and redirect that funding into critical innovation initiatives.” To download an eBook summary of the survey, “The State of Innovation: Priorities and Challenges,” click here.

(Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, and the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products, today announced it has obtained Single Touch Payroll (STP) certification by the Australian Government’s Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for PeopleSoft Global Payroll and SAP HCM Payroll. The new certification enables Rimini Street’s Australian clients to submit their payroll data via a ‘pay event,’ either on or before pay day, to the ATO. Rimini Street’s tax, legal and regulatory division passed the complex, rigorous qualification process with the first file submission for both PeopleSoft and SAP software products, well ahead of the deadline set by the ATO. Premium Service Support for Critical Certification Process All organisations with 20 or more employees are required to report under STP to stay compliant with the Australian Taxation Legislation. The aim of STP is to streamline employer payroll information reporting to the ATO. The change requires companies to report payments such as salaries and wages, pay as you go (PAYG) withholding, and superannuation information from their payroll solution each time an organisation pays its employees, rather than at the end of each financial year. “With the Australian Taxation Office mandating new Single Touch Payroll reporting requirements, we needed to ensure that our systems were fully compliant,” said John Brizee, SAP manager at Golding Contractors. “Rimini Street provided the STP update for our SAP payroll application. The update was installed, tested, and ready-to-go well in advance of the ATO’s deadline of July 1, 2018.” Rimini Street put a comprehensive process in place eighteen months prior to the July 1, 2018 deadline to begin preparing clients for this new reporting standard. The Company achieved STP certification for PeopleSoft software products in May 2018 and for SAP related products in June 2018 by completing three main verification steps set by the ATO – an in depth security questionnaire, execution of the ATO’s conformance test suite and lastly, product verification testing. “STP is the largest change to Australian payroll in recent history,” said Paul Henville, group vice president, Global Product Delivery. “By obtaining the STP certification for our PeopleSoft and SAP clients, we can ensure their systems are supported and compliant for this monumental shift in payroll reporting. This is just one example of how Rimini Street remains diligent, proactive and on the forefront of constantly changing tax, legal and regulatory requirements; STP in particular was one of the most complex requirements we have had to undertake, which we were able to complete ahead of the original software vendors.” To review the list of vendors certified for STP, visit http://www.sbr.gov.au/products-register/sbr-product-register-full-list Industry-Leading Tax, Legal & Regulatory Research and Technology Rimini Street’s tax, legal and regulatory strategy and scoping team is made up of veteran tax specialists, attorneys and international tax, legal and regulatory professionals who use advanced technology and numerous government and private-sector sources to monitor, collect and verify tax, legal and regulatory changes. Rimini Street also participates in, and is a member of, many prominent tax, legal and regulatory associations around the world, including the American, Canadian, United Kingdom and Australian Payroll Associations, the American Bar Association Section of Taxation, the Financial Executives International Association, the Tax Council and the Tax Executives Institute. The innovative combination of technology, proven methodology and ISO 9001 quality processes consistently assures a fast “legislature-to-live”SM update delivery cycle and the highest quality deliverables in the industry.

Comprising of three full days of expert learning, networking and industry insights, CeMAT is the world’s leading trade fair for materials handling, intralogistics and supply chain management. Over 25 high-profile experts presented exclusively at the conference, with executives and decision makers attending from across Australia to hear the latest on ‘industry 4.0’ in intralogistics, materials handling and the supply chain. Two exemplary sessions during the Knowledge Program offered relevant case studies providing the audience with practical applications to take away: Rod Barnes, General Manager Delivery, Australia Post, examined how Australia Post is collaborating with local retailers to meet fast-paced online shopping demands in his presentation, ‘A look at how market dynamics have changed in recent years and how Australia Post is working with major eCommerce businesses to fulfil their supply chain demand’ Kevin Gunn, General Manager Supply Chain, Coles, discussed the retail giant’s internal experience in ‘Intralogistics optimising at Coles: Improving efficiencies throughout the warehouse to ensure customers have great availability and fresh product every day’ Daniel Mortimer, Event Director, Hannover Fairs, commented on the success of the Knowledge Program offering insights into industry trends, product innovations and customer case studies. “Inviting both vendors and end users to speak on the program allowed for CeMAT visitors to have a well-rounded opinion on the current state of the intralogistics industry. It proved to be highly effective, with a number of presentations having standing room only,” said Mortimer. The 105 exhibitors at the event collectively reported positive feedback about the quality of visitors on the showfloor, after networking and showcasing first-hand their latest products. Exhibitors included the likes of; C.H. Robinson, Vanderlande, KNAPP, Panasonic Business, Paperless Warehousing Group, Swisslog, Dematic and CHEP. Greg Perrot, Managing Director at Cowin Global said, “Cowin Global Australia exhibited at CeMAT 2018 in Melbourne and again can only say it was a great success. We increased our quality leads by 100% from 2016, the people we met on the stand were the decision makers which is exactly what any business needs to increase their market awareness as well as increase their sales. “We not only sold stock directly from the stand, but within a week of the show being over, we have received numerous purchase orders from new customers. We confirmed our spot on the last day of the show to exhibit at CeMAT 2020 and have no doubt it will be a sound investment in our future in Australia. “I would urge anyone thinking of exhibiting at CeMAT 2020 to STOP THINKING and confirm your spot now, as it is, without doubt a great show, well organised and marketed to ensure the right people attend. You will reap the rewards,” said Perrot. Cara Skelsey, Marketing Manager at Dematic also said, “CeMAT AUSTRALIA once again provided a fantastic opportunity for Dematic to exhibit its wide range of solutions, connect with a number of business leaders and decision makers, and share and discuss innovations in the industry.” Wrapping up the second day, the Industry Leader Drinks Reception, treated over 300 VIPs and exhibitors to an evening with guest presenter, Ashley Davies, Deputy CEO & General Manager Operations of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation. Harvey Stockbridge, Managing Director, Hannover Fairs, said CeMAT AUSTRALIA was a high point of the 2018 industry calendar, “CeMAT AUSTRALIA highlighted the innovations that are transforming the intralogistics industry. The diversity in solutions available on the showfloor allowed for a wide array of visitors to attend. “We are already excited to see what new technology will be showcased at the next CeMAT in Melbourne, which will take place on 7-9 June 2020,” said Stockbridge. CeMAT AUSTRALIA will return in 2020. For more information about CeMAT Australia visit: www.cemat.com.au Images: Hi-res available and royalty free from CeMAT Australia Flickr page. Ashley Davies, Deputy CEO & General Manager Operations Grand Prix Corporation, CeMAT Showfloor Industry Leader Drinks Reception CeMAT Showfloor Add a Teaspoon of Diversity and Stir 2018-07-19T01:04:45Z add-a-teaspoon-of-diversity-and-stir-1 It’s thought-provoking that cultural diversity is a hot topic in board meetings and that there are teams within companies whose job it is to increase the workplace numbers of women, people with indigenous backgrounds or those from other cultures. It may seem to some that we celebrate cultural diversity, but is this just a political agenda? Or are we a society that really believes in and embraces equality in the workplace? Why do some companies need diversity KPI’s? Is it a performance issue and companies struggle to find people of colour or women with the same skill sets as men? The diversity issue can’t be solved with anecdotal solutions that tend to increase awareness from time to time, like a hit of caffeine. For managers, leaders and HR professionals, it should always be at the forefront of one’s mind and it starts with changing company culture with a top-down approach. But don’t get me wrong, it makes little sense to “get the diversity balance right” just to satisfy the numbers. You need to get it right because there is value in having a diverse workforce. To appoint a person to a position (or promote them) simply because they balance the demographic books by virtue of race or gender or any other criterion is a false value system that is condescending and bordering on being insulting. Use the person best suited to the job – for their sake as much as the company’s. Give the contract to the person who best matches the job description. Better still: create opportunities where natural motivation and inclination (diversity) can flourish. From my own experience, I can tell you that being a company’s pin-up girl showed me the other side of diversity. Being promoted, beyond my capability at the time, had a detrimental effect not only on my career but also on my personal growth. A toxic work environment coupled with unrealistic work pressures quickly led to burnout and attempted suicide. In a recent survey of conference attendants, 47% confirmed they had experienced some sort of harassment during the course for their career; 13 % said yes but didn’t report it, and 19% of the audience said maybe, but I am not sure. Creating a diverse workplace is a noble act but unless we tackle the ugly side of it and really delve deep into the issues that create a contaminated workplace, it will all have been in vain and will have had the reverse effect. With the current infrastructure boom and the influx of new people joining the rail and construction industry, you need to make sure your onboarding systems are aligned and you have a framework in place that will set them up for success. The alternative will be a diverse workforce with a poor mental state, which ultimately leads to a high attrition rate. Diversity is not a numbers game and while we support the notion that we should treat people like humans and not ‘Key Performance Indicators’, a formal education and mentorship framework is what’s missing, so what are organisations going to do to improve diversity and sustainability in their workforce?

(NASDAQ: EXTR) today announced that Metro Trains, Melbourne’s Metropolitan Rail Service, has selected ExtremeSwitching™ 10G Ethernet core and edge switching solutions to deliver an agile, adaptive, and secure network supporting its system-wide, real-time CCTV and video system. Metro Trains is one of Australia’s largest metropolitan rail services, with 16 lines, 219 stations, and 221 six-carriage trains. The rail network is in a constant state of expansion as Melbourne continues to lead population growth among the country’s largest capital cities and as the Victorian government rebuilds rail and station infrastructure as a part of its ambitious level crossing removal program. Metro Trains transports nearly half a million passengers a day, and required a technology partner that could scale to aid its network growth. A core component of the Metro Trains technology platform is its CCTV network. It is one of the state’s largest CCTV networks, with one camera on every station platform and in every train carriage, resulting in more than 9,000 cameras total. Utilising ExtremeSwitching aggregation, edge and ISW Industrial Ethernet Switches ideal for “in-tunnel” CCTV, the robust network provides round-the-clock aggregation and seamless hand-off for all CCTV traffic as well as additional in-station services. The network transmits over 100 terabytes of video traffic on a typical business day, equivalent to 20,000 high definition films streaming simultaneously. “Extreme Networks is committed to helping Metro Trains build a reliable, secure network to underpin its CCTV infrastructure,” said Chris Georgellis, Managing Director, Extreme Networks, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). “Metro Trains operates one of the most sophisticated and geographically-dispersed networks in the country and this a real showcase of Extreme’s capabilities.” “Having real-time access to network-wide CCTV footage is essential to the operations of Metro Trains and critical to enabling the security and safety of passengers,” continued Georgellis. “The ExtremeSwitching platform provides the multicast performance required to support the huge volumes of video captured and managed on the Metro system, and the scalability to meet its demanding requirements as the network environment expands.” Additional Resources: ExtremeSwitching Product Page Connect with Extreme via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Google+ About Extreme Networks Extreme Networks, Inc.
