FORESENSE TECHNOLOGIES is revolutionising government, commerce, agriculture and industry, making day-to-day processes and procedures smarter and more efficient.
The resource sector is highly unique in the fact that many sites operate round-the-clock 24/7, 365 days of the year.
Simply put, production never ceases.
Oil-rigs, mine sites and off-shore platforms have such a complex degree of logistical management of all equipment, supplies and human resources.
Mining sites are not only large in scale, but also have a lot of people making up the workforce.
Some are the size of a small city.
Apart from actual excavation and work sites, accommodation camps, mess and canteen areas, gyms and bars, are all important areas in the overall function of the site.
Some have facilities such as bowling greens, swimming pools and even golf driving ranges.
Cooking, cleaning and transport operations are a logistical challenge in themselves.
One you add the mining workforce – technical personnel, engineers, truck drivers, heavy machinery operators, tradespeople – numbers onsite at any given time can enter into the thousands.
Coupled with the fact that many are on a transient fly-in-fly-out arrangement, it is not hard to appreciate the complexity of daily operations and people management.
Safety and efficiency are paramount to the wellbeing of the workforce and overall profitability.
With competition for skilled workers between companies at an all-time high, improving site facilities and workforce contentment is paramount to employee retention.
Foresense offers a solution where AI monitors behaviours and analyses trends to gain an unprecedented level of insight into what people want and need.
And because production never ceases in the resource sector, its impact is intensified.
Foresense facilitates the collection of presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of traffic inside and around any physical location.
It identifies areas for improvement and guides commercially based decisions with more detailed, quantifiable data to improve operational KPIs and efficiencies.
In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and return visitations the Foresense platform collects data through sensors integrating with smartphones, or wearable technology such as bracelets or smart ID cards.
