Overview

Procon is a North American mining contractor that provides an entire range of start-to-finish mining services throughout the world. The Burnaby, British Columbia-based company’s ability to finance, build and operate the most complex open pit and underground mining operations makes it a global industry leader.

When owners predicted an upsurge in business, Procon responded by updating to SAP and moving to the cloud.

Like any piece of equipment, computing systems need constant maintenance to keep doing what they need to do everyday. But sometimes — whether it’s a heavy excavator or complex IT hardware — age usurps usefulness and it just has to be replaced. Today, Procon runs its SAP applications in the cloud and everyday business happens like a well-oiled machine.
