Micromine prepares to launch Geobank 2020 data management solution

During PDAC in Toronto in March, Micromine will be showcasing its new geological data management software release, Geobank 2020. The latest version of Geobank is designed to provide informed decision making in the minerals discovery process through the use of access to reliable information and secure data management, with modern visualisation and workflow sequencing.

Designed in collaboration with clients and users, Ian Whitehouse, product strategy manager, explained that Geobank 2020 has been built with many enhancements to provide users with a platform to interact with their geological data using creative intuitive interfaces and customisable forms. "One of the most highly anticipated features of Geobank 2020 is the new form designer. The form designer streamlines and facilitates business processes and, in turn, increases data management accuracy and efficiency.

"The ability to design and build forms also enables users to create intuitive interfaces and rich tools to produce better information.

"It's about configuring our tools to facilitate our clients' processes, rather than them having to change their processes to fit our tools," said Whitehouse.

With a new and improved licence manager, Geobank 2020 also gives users access to licence borrowing, activation and transfer functions. It has also been configured so those already using Geobank software can seamlessly operate both new and older versions. An independent management tool is in place to ensure the different versions do not interfere with one another. The latest release also enables data sharing between all popular industry file types.

"Micromine appreciates most geologists use multiple software solutions and products, so integration has been an important consideration for us and it's where Geobank 2020 really delivers," Whitehouse said.

"Within Geobank 2020, it is possible to pass data parameters to third-party applications in a ready-to-work state. A ‘connector' has also been included so Geobank 2020 offers full .dat Unicode support. In an era where efficiency and productivity go hand-in-hand, system integration will save users time and offer greater data reliability."

"Micromine's aim was to develop a solution that addresses the industry's evolving needs and our clients' feedback," said Whitehouse. "As a result, Geobank 2020 offers a dynamic, efficient and scalable software solution that will help companies of all sizes better record, access, review, integrate and utilise their essential geological data."
