Reduced risk, improved knowledge management
Major Global Resources Company
As part of a global initiative, the client embarked on an implementation of EMC Documentum as their Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS). The aim was to reduce risk, improve consistency of operations and ensure all personnel were equipped to work effectively with the new technology. Mango was engaged to provide planning and project implementation support for the internal project manager, undertake User Acceptance Testing, data migration support and end‐to‐end training services for every department across all sites.
The level of our involvement was due to our multi-skilled team, depth of understanding of business requirements, change management, and our team’s large cross section of strong relationships throughout the organisation.
This approach ensured that the extensive business knowledge gained throughout the project was retained within the team, giving them credibility with the business and making them more effective change agents.
Mango successfully supported the implementation of the new system in all divisions and departments, thereby improving the consistency of information management (IM) practices and reducing the associated IM risks. The Mango team also ensured the client’s internal team were capable of training new starters and providing ongoing business support to ensure the desired business benefits continue to be realised.

Develop easy to use trainer and trainee resources using just the Operations Manuals and related documents as guides. Supervisors needed to be up-skilled in order to train effectively provided with resources and assessment tools that were easy to use as well as simple to follow reference guides for the equipment operators.
The project brief was to first develop a standardised Drill and Blast Design Guideline based on the best of current practice aligned with legislative requirements, and secondly, to develop an effective training package for the implementation and ongoing training of the Datavis DBS Drill and Blast Software.
This organisation needed the services of a team that could quickly learn how the system configuration and the business processes interacted and then design and deliver training that reflected this to ensure the successful transition from the old to new system.
The Senior HSEC Advisor approached Mango to assist based on Mango’s expertise in developing the Controlled Documents guidelines and procedures as part of the 1DOC implementation. The Mango team also had extensive knowledge of BHPBIO’s culture, systems and HSEC environment.
The client’s geographically dispersed document control managers and workflow performers meant face to face training would be too expensive, impractical and not sustainable. eLearning was the Mango solution.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is the backbone of many organisations—managing accounting, procurement, and projects throughout the enterprise—training is a crucial element.
