IT News reported that Newcrest Mining has created 36 mobile apps to get its 3500 remotely-based mine workers away from their desks and more productive when out in the field. Newcrest was recently outed as one of the first companies through a Melbourne-based SAP Apphaus, a growing network of spaces run by SAP or its partners to encourage design thinking around problems. The Melbourne-based space is run by Bourne Digital and was officially launched in late March, though it has been part of the Apphaus network since December. The miner also landed a global SAP innovation award for the project in the past month.

Newcrest’s chief information and digital officer Mr Gavin Wood said the company’s IT and digital function had used the space to find ways to deliver a number of mobile innovations using SAP cloud. Mr Wood said that “With user centered design we're developing a range of apps that improve productivity for our people working remotely at our operations. This gets them away from their desks, out in the field, and reduces manual processes. To date, we've delivered 36 mobile apps with around 35,000 mobile transactions per month.”

Mr Wood showed off several apps that had been developed under the project so far. These included a “Telfer shutdown app, simple maintenance fix-this app, warehouse management mobility app, and [an] EasySAP employee self service app.”
