Orica is a global leader in commercial explosives and blasting solutions for the mining sector. In 2017, the company won the race to develop the world’s first wireless blasting system, called WebGen. A true game-changer for the mining industry, the new technology vastly improves operator safety, increases productivity and reduces waste in blasting operations.
says François Guillemette, Lead - Technology and Wireless initiation at Orica.
He also praises Beslogic’s agility and responsiveness when it came to resource allocation: “This flexibility was a major asset for us, says Guillemette. It allowed us to bring on additional programmers on a temporary basis during periods when project deadlines required a more intensive output’’.
This same agility also came through in terms of work processes: “We communicated directly with the programmers throughout the project, which made for a much smoother process and helped us stay on track more easily”, says Orica’ project lead.
