RungePincockMinarco (RPM) has today announced the release of XERAS Enterprise, its new enterprise financial modelling product with a new user interface (UI) and the power and flexibility of a server-based architecture.
This latest software offering from RPM brings with it a whole new user engagement experience given its speed, agility and exciting new user interface.
“XERAS Enterprise has been built from the ground up and incorporates our 35 yr of experience in financial modelling for mining,” said Richard Mathews, RPM’s CEO, at the SAP Industry Advisory Council for Mining Partner Day “The whole user experience is incredibly different from what our clients, and indeed the industry, has ever seen before.”
Inspired by the gaming industry, the UI is streamlined, user focused and delivers financial information in an interactive new way.
“To put it simply, the user interface is really cool,” continued Mathews. “We have put a lot of effort into exploring the users’ needs, making it more intuitive, easier to navigate, completely transparent and much more visual with one click graphs and charts – and much much faster. XERAS Enterprise provides the next level of visibility, consistency and control in budgeting and reforecasting for our clients.”
Using a central enterprise planning framework, XERAS Enterprise has integrates with SAP and other ERP systems. From the power of the corporate master data module to a sophisticated model repository for the management of data, RPM’s Enterprise Planning Framework allows clients to store, manage and control their budgeting and reforecasting processes better than ever before. The seamless transfer of data between the ERP and the budgeting/reforecasting models ensures that there is a single source of the truth, delivering greater confidence in every budget or reforecast produced.
“RPM has really pioneered the use of enterprise financial modelling for mining, from zero-based budgeting to plan vs. actual reporting,” continued Mathews. “We are delivering consistency, reliability and certainty to the guys in charge of some very big numbers within our clients. XERAS Enterprise is the next step in this journey, it’s now easier to use and even faster than before. There is no need to be grappling with hundreds of divergent spreadsheets anymore: one system, fully integrated, produces the best results.”
This product isn’t solely targeted at the big end of town; through different use modes, XERAS Enterprise will also suit the smaller miners. Whether the need is to manage a maintenance budget at a single site, consolidate forecasts across a couple of operations or take it all the way across an entire multi-site mining business and connect with the ERP, then XERAS Enterprise has an option that will suit.
“While Enterprise systems are critical to large operations, we understand that it isn’t necessary for all clients,” concluded Mathews.”But they do all need a robust budgeting system that delivers accurate and transparent outcomes. XERAS Enterprise can ensure this for any scale operation.”
The complete XERAS Enterprise solution and ERP integration is available today and live demonstrations can be organised through any RPM office.
