As released earlier today, the Security Alert Messaging (SAM) pilot project with a major mining company in Chile has been successfully closed. The next steps to be taken are being discussed by iSIGN’s Chilean reseller Smart Sign, the mining company and iSIGN.
This pilot project has designed to allow the mine to familiarize themselves with the operation and management of the SAM technology and back-end reporting system and involved a selected number of employees and management at the mining operation’s headquarters. The mining company is looking for a system that allows management to communicate directly and easily with their employees both on and off site, for safety measures and for normal day-to-day communications, including the directing of staff to their specific work areas prior to arriving at the start of their shift and to remind them to bring the necessary safety and other certifications specific to the areas where they will be working that day.
Both iSIGN and its Chilean reseller, Smart Sign, anticipate that the successful completion of this pilot will aid with discussions currently underway with other mining companies in Chile as well as with other companies in this channel.
