Anglo American Platinum

How we’re keeping over 9,000 people travelling for one of the world’s leading mining companies safe on the road.

The Challenge

Operating some of the largest mining complexes in South Africa, Anglo American have experienced significant challenges with road travel. The mining giant quickly identified their current journey management processes were inadequate and varied from region to region.

Pain Points
  • Experiencing significant road travel risks
  • Lack of visibility over workforce
  • Process varied from region to region
  • Complex expense claim process
  • Absent duress and emergency response
  • 18-month development for in-house solution


Enhanced road safety during business travel between different sites and clients has led to a more efficient and streamlined journey management process, resulting in a reduced staff requirement of only three individuals. This achievement has brought about substantial cost savings across operational efficiency, risk mitigation, and productivity.

How we helped
  • Fully customised “Anglo American Road Travel App” delivered in just 80 days
  • Hosted in Anglo American’s own Azure environment, integrated with SSO and SAP Concur
  • Published via their own app store and is fully supported by JMS
  • Available in multiple languages
  • 100% of users are self-booking travel, only 3 x internal staff are required to support the product
