DINGO Wins Prestigious Austmine Innovation Award

Judging Panel Calls Field Inspection App™ ‘Incredibly Effective’

BRISBANE, Australia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DINGO (DINGO), a condition management software and services provider, has received the Austmine Innovation Award for METS (Mining Equipment Technology Services) for its Trakka® Field Inspection App™. DINGO was awarded the honor at last week’s Austmine 2015 conference in Brisbane, Australia. Austmine is the peak industry body in Australia for the mining equipment, technology and services sector.

“Austmine was delighted to award DINGO the 2015 Austmine Innovation Award for METS”

The Trakka Field Inspection App for iPhones and other mobile devices is an end-to-end solution for field inspection data capture and analysis. This groundbreaking app from DINGO enables maintenance technicians to easily capture images, along with notes and ratings, on their mobile devices while physically inspecting equipment. This observation data then integrates directly with Trakka, DINGO’s proprietary condition management software, allowing a centralized expert to easily review, analyze and extract the maximum value from this information.

“Austmine was delighted to award DINGO the 2015 Austmine Innovation Award for METS,” said Christine Gibbs Stewart, CEO of Austmine. “Their Trakka Field Inspection App is a unique and novel development that is a simple, but incredibly effective method for addressing a very real need in the industry. It is intuitive, allows informed real-time decision making, and fits smoothly into existing operations.” These benefits led the judges to unanimously select the Field Inspection App as the winner in a highly competitive field of over twenty submissions for the award.

According to Paul Higgins, CEO, DINGO, “We developed this product in response to the growing market need to use smart devices and images to improve maintenance decisions. Winning the METS Innovation Award is a true testament to the creative spirit of our company. I am thrilled that DINGO has won this prestigious award.” Watch Mr. Higgins’ acceptance speech here

“Partnering with Dingo allows us to leverage remotely located condition intelligence experts from the get-go for a fraction of the normal cost to company. This allows our few reliability experts to focus on the top issues and make important decisions to ensure our fleet availability is where it needs to be instead of having them analyzing data and looking for the issues.
