ALS Global is a metallurgical support company with a global presence. It provides services to mining companies through provision of sample testing solutions that generate information valuable to mining property owners. Over the past 12 years, the Canadian division of ALS Global has used a custom-built enterprise management system to manage its business processes. The software, which was developed in ASP, was in urgent need of a number of additional features, enhancements and technical upgrades to work with the latest web browsing technologies.
Sandbox Software Solutions was selected to partner with ALS Global to redevelop its enterprise management software. The custom web-based application was built to manage, store and report on information related to the company’s workflow (including inventory management and sample test results), quotations, invoicing, employee time allocation to projects and employee holidays.
The redeveloped enterprise management system allows ALS Global to take advantage of the latest online technologies. New enhancements and a dramatically improved user experience have increased efficiency of employees using the software and has significantly reduced manual entry of data. The software’s success has been closely monitored by other divisions within ALS Global with hopes of deploying the software for their purposes. The software is so successful it is also being used by ALS in Santiago, Chile.
