RPMGlobal acquired Revolution Mining Software (RMS).

The latter makes Schedule Optimization Tool (SOT), a financial mine scheduling optimization solution.

RPMGlobal said it will invest in developing RMS software solutions. “RPMGLobal was born from the belief that mine planning needs to be built on sound economics and the RMS products strategy is completely aligned with that core value,” Richard Matthews, CEO, RPMGlobal, said.

SOT enables mine planners to improve productivity and profitability by optimizing the net present value of the mine schedule, RPMGlobal said. Other RMS solutions include Attain and SurfaceSOT.

After the acquisition, all RMS personnel will become RPMGlobal personnel and will continue to focus on innovative software solutions, RPMGlobal reported.
