AngloGold Ashanti’s entire experience with the implementation of FlexiCadastre went remarkably well from the word go. If you think about all the variables that are at play when implementing any new IT system – different stakeholders, different needs and expectations, multiple jurisdictions, multiple languages and cultures – it is normally a recipe for disaster and numerous challenges.
However, the talented and experienced analysts and developers at Spatial Dimension quickly made sense from the chaos and started adding value to the team at AngloGold Ashanti. From their excellent planning skills, to their solid product, to on-time delivery that was within budget, Spatial Dimension performed exceptionally well. Communication between Spatial Dimension and AngloGold Ashanti was painless.
Comments about Spatial Dimension from employees on the AngloGold Ashanti side include ‘Easy to work with’, ‘Responsive’, ‘Quick to become subject matter experts’, ‘Professional’, ‘On time’, ‘Great at suggesting improvements’, and ‘Well organized’.
Once FlexiCadastre was up and running, we were able to view for the first time, the location and outlines of all of our tenements, in real time, with the click of a button. Budgeting is now a piece of cake as we can easily run reports summarising AngloGold Ashanti’s annual financial obligations for each tenement, for each jurisdiction, for the next fiscal year.
FlexiCadstre has also provided us with one platform which consolidates all of our multiple jurisdictional tenement information and statutory requirements. Not talking about consolidating the efforts of the various legal teams spread across the globe where FlexiCadastre is the central managing tool and repository for all global contracts and agreements.
FlexiCadstre has enabled the legal teams to manage various legal and contractual obligations on all of our corporate contracts in such a manner that the senior management team has a global view of AngloGold Ashanti’s exposure and commitments.
When it comes to implementing tenement and contract management software, I highly recommend Spatial Dimension and their product – FlexiCadstre.
