With mining operations spanning the globe, Kinross manages over $1 billion in capital requests each year. Previously, these requests were run entirely by a manual process, which resulted in delays, duplication, chasing after signatures and much frustration. Now working with K2 Partner Caprivi Solutions, Kinross has developed many business applications without the time and cost associated with custom code. They've automated more than a dozen processes with these K2 applications so far to greatly increase efficiency and flexibility.
“It has gone viral,” said Chris Fraidakis, program manager, Kinross Gold Corporation. “With every new application we release, we get more requests from other mines and departments asking if we could do the same for them."
Benefits: Transformed $1B of manual capital requests into a mobile friendly automated process.
