visisure (West Africa) Ltd, our timeware distributor based in Ghana, recently won the contract to supply one of the world’s largest gold mining firms, Gold Fields, with a workforce management system for its mines in Tarkwa and Damang. This is an exciting project as it is the first to utilise Suprema’s new BioLite N2 in the region. Employing over 2,500 staff at both mines, Gold Fields currently use SAP for HR and payroll purposes and a prerequisite in being awarded the contract was that a link would be developed between the two systems.
A SAP / timeware integration has been developed which populates timeware with employees and agency workers from SAP, and passes hours worked for each person back to SAP. This is the first in a series of mining projects in the West African region.
