How Can You Benefit From SAM?
SAM is a fantastic tool to assist all the departments involved in managing the workforce of a mining campsite. It doesn’t matter if you are involved in the strategic decision-making or the day-to-day running of a camp—SAM’s the right solution to help you reduce complexities, manage risks and maximise efficiency. See each job title below to see how SAM could benefit you.
Travel and Accommodation Coordinators
SAM was made for both Travel and Accommodation Coordinators. SAM integrates and simultaneously books the travel and accommodation needs for an individual arriving and departing site. With simultaneous booking, gone are the days where you had to worry about booking flights and then not being able to find onsite accommodation for an employee or vice versa.
Accommodation Coordinators will also love the ability to automate shift patterns for individuals and ensure fatigue management guidelines are being adhered to. Whilst Travel Coordinators will love SAM's SMS functionality, which allows them to SMS a number of employees at once and let them know if transport has been delayed or cancelled.
Campsite Administrators will love SAM for one simple reason: it can save them a great deal of time.
In addition to automating tasks such as cleaning rosters and being able to forecast catering needs, SAM also has the ability to optimise rooms. With the Room Optimiser, you can make sure you're utlising every bed, every night. Each night, SAM will run a report and automatically reshuffle future motelling accommodation bookings—freeing up unused rooms for additional future bookings. This ensures accommodation is utilised in the most efficient manner.
Another great tool is the SMS functionality. In times of emergencies, you can SMS employees to let them know of emergency procedures such as when and how to evacuate.
Campsite Administrators can also run all their reports from SAM, including Manday reporting. Better yet, with our scheduled reporting framework (SRF), Campsite Administrators can schedule reports to run on a specific date and time and have them automatically sent to a nominated email address—taking the effort out of reporting.
SAM is more than just a great tool for the day-to-day management of a mining campsite—it’s also a fantastic tool to assist with strategic decision-making. Business Managers can increase the visibility of a remote mine site operation by running a variety of reports to extract useful business intelligence and make informed decisions about how to best utilise resources and run a campsite more cost effectively. SAM also enforces your travel and accommodation business rules—helping to ensure your workforce logistics are under control.
You can also partner with Vix as we offer expert advice by utilising our product knowledge with your workforce data to help you make strategic decisions and run your campsite more efficiently.
SAM helps Human Resource teams' stay on top of all the complexities of managing a mining workforce. In addition to storing an individual’s personal details, SAM allows you to run a variety of reports to manage necessary workforce requirements such as who needs to be drug and alcohol tested and who needs induction training. SAM also increases the visibility of your employees and lets you run a number of reports to illustrate aspects of your workforce such as diversity.
The Human Resources team can also ensure their fatigue management guidelines are being implemented and adhered to through SAM. Simply instruct your Camp Managers to enter specific rules into SAM about fatigue management and then SAM will automatically adhere to these rules when creating travel and shift patterns for an individual.
SAM is a great tool to increase transparency and ensure due diligence with the financial management of a remote campsite. SAM captures information about an employee including cost codes and department codes. This means, the finance department is able to easily run a number of reports about who worked where and how much money is owed to each contractor.
SAM can also assist with accommodation invoicing as detailed line items can be produced for accommodation against employers.
