Questions? We have answers
What is a Plod?

A plod, short for ‘Progressive Log of Drilling’, is a form used to record the time, activities, consumables, people, and costs associated with drilling during a single shift of work. Learn more about 'Plods' here.

How do you currently define a 'Project' in CorePlan?

When setting up projects, you have the flexibility to choose what works best for you. Typically, our customers define a project as one or more prospects located within a neighbouring area or tenure boundary.

These projects can be used as a working area for various drilling operations, such as exploration, resource definition, and grade control.

You can organise your workstreams individually for each project or combine multiple workstreams into one. Alternatively, projects can also be defined based on team or organisational structure, allowing users to access relevant data with assigned permissions.

Each project can have multiple prospects and drilling programs, simplifying budgeting and work program management.

Mine sites running, exploration, development and production drilling programs would need to have these as separate projects.

How long does it take to implement an integrated drilling management platform?

Getting started with CorePlan is almost instantaneous. Once you sign up, our implementation team will guide you through the process. They'll configure your first project on your behalf and provide you with step-by-step instructions. Fully implementing your first project can be completed in as little as 2 to 3 weeks. However, for more advanced implementations involving integration into geological databases, the process may take longer.

Why don't I do custom development myself? 

The 'build or buy' dilemma is an age-old question. However, in today's modern era, it's evolved into 'build, buy, or subscribe.'

Opting for in-house development carries inherent risks, including project delays, cost overruns, skill shortages, and potential technical debt.

Moreover, there's the risk of the final product falling short of expectations or lacking essential features. We've talked about it more on Linkedin here.

What kind of reporting does CorePlan have?

Your CorePlan account offers reports and dashboards that allow you to see drilling performance data in one place and easily share reports with stakeholders.

With Advanced Analytics, you gain access to even more powerful dashboards that enable you to create your own reports and dashboards using intuitive drag-and-drop builders.

How is CorePlan different to other drilling analytics software?

We're built differently - just ask our customers. CorePlan brings together a suite of connected tools and experiences, all in one place.

Unlike some mining software, you won't have to deal with a bunch of different solutions to get your systems and data working together. Most mining software is stuck in the past, rigid and complicated, and requires huge customisations.

The best part? CorePlan is powerful and easy to use. It’s customisable without being complicated and empowering instead of overpowering.

Is there an extra cost for live support?

Absolutely not! All our customers get live support, though the level of support varies depending on the plan you choose.

As a database administrator, I'm saving so much time by not having to create all of these reports or consolidate all of our invoices because it's already taken care of in CorePlan.
