Miplan a mine of information
LOUISE and Robert Daw have sold their mining application business Miplan to Arizona-based Hexagon Mining.
The Mosman Park couple established the business that develops mobile software applications for field data collection, fleet management, production management and reporting in 2010.
Since then, they have attracted several investors and been part of the international Springboard Accelerator program.
Mrs Daw said Springboard had given them the confidence, skills, language and network to understand and seek investment, achieve investment and undergo rebranding from the ground up.
“Miplan grew 300 per cent the year after (Springboard) bootcamp and six months into this financial year we have already surpassed last year’s earnings,” she said.
“They bought us because they want our products to be the core offering for their global solutions. They’ll be boosting employees and staff in Perth.”
The Daws have signed an agreement to run the company from Perth for the next two years.
Hexagon Mining president Helio Samora said Miplan’s solutions suite would be a formidable addition to the company’s technology portfolio and significant news for customers of both companies.
“Safer, more productive mines depend on making sense of their data,” he said.
Louise Daw and husband Robert have sold their business Miplan to US interests.
