One source of truth.
Essential to higher performing mining projects is breaking down silos that cause delays, budget overruns, and costly mistakes. Adept gives you a centralized platform for document access and control that aligns everyone, automated workflows, simplified collaboration, and visibility across the project lifecycle.
- Centrally manage project documentation so it’s accessible, secure, and traceable
- Manage communications with EPCs, such as transmittals, bid packages, and requisitions
- Centrally manage and control change
- Reduce risk of unplanned downtime and safety issues
- Drive standardization and best practices across your entire mining business
- Simplify visibility to project data for improved decision making
- Connect engineering, construction, maintenance, and operations across mining sites, processing plants, and transport
Get the right document to the right person at the right time.
- Recover a day per week per person by eliminating time wasted searching for information
- Ensure fast access to the right information, from anywhere
- Automate version control
- Eliminate duplicates and complex file systems that drain productivity and cause mistakes
- Use full text search, metadata search, or browse a flexible, metadata-based tree structure
More than four out of five mining projects come in late and over budget, by an average of 43 percent.

Streamline project workflow and collaboration.
Workshare and collaborate across geographies.
Easily distribute your project workload to teams in other geographies, while giving everyone visibility and access to the information they need. Replicate document vaults so everyone works locally, while Adept keeps everything in sync to ensure version accuracy, and maintain a complete audit trail.
Simplify internal and supplier design reviews.
Adept delivers a centralized, easy-to-use view and markup experience for 2D and 3D CAD, Word, Excel, PDF, and more. Teams can review documents, author comments, and add redlines from a single interface. Combined with a built-in workflow engine, review and approval has never been easier. No CAD licenses required.
Streamline transmittal management.
Simplify the process of finding files, validating versions, tracking down references, creating cover sheets, packaging, sending, and maintaining an auditable record for your transmittals. Adept helps you free up resources for more valuable work.
Automate workflow and approval processes.
Keep projects on track by ensuring each document flows through the correct review and approval process at the right time. Email notifications and time-based alerts keep everyone on schedule and eliminate bottlenecks.
Support concurrent engineering.
Asset-driven environments are in a constant state of change.Employees in the field need fast access to as-built documentation, while concurrent engineering projects are happening. Adept ensures everyone has access to the right information from anywhere.
Accelerate project handover.
Poorly organized and executed handover of drawings, technical documents, and data leads to safety risks, inefficient operations, and increased costs. Adept keeps your asset information organized, accurate, and controlled so handover is efficient and accurate.
Ensure handover metadata quality compliance.
Don’t wait for project handover to discover missing metadata, data inconsistencies, and incompleteness. Document metadata can easily be reported and reviewed before the critical handover dates are imminent.
Ease reporting for document controllers.
By managing your project deliverables in a single place, tracking what’s been started, completed, and yet to be done becomes easier. Using place-holder records for expected project documents, you can attach files as they are created.
Share and manage project best practices.
Adept is the perfect repository to control and share project best practices so team members stay aligned.
