For immediate release: Wednesday, February 9, 2022
ST. JOHN’S, NL – Leading North American gold producer Alamos Gold has signed on with CoLab Software, adopting the web-based collaborative tool for their design review and approval workflows. Alamos Gold is a Canadian-based company operating three mines—two in Canada and one in Mexico—as well as development stage projects in Canada, Mexico, Turkey, and the United States. With more than 1700 employees and a commitment to the highest standards of sustainable development, the growing multinational company saw CoLab as an opportunity to create a stronger and more efficient process for managing their high volume of reviews.
As an easy-to-use app that’s purpose-built for engineering teams, CoLab enables Alamos to bring design reviews and approvals together under one tool. Replacing the need for multiple different applications, CoLab provides a single source of truth and makes it easy to see all review information—including who’s reviewed a document, what feedback was provided, and whether feedback has been resolved. CoLab also gives Alamos the power to have the entire team conduct design reviews concurrently, allowing for greater efficiency than sequential review processes. With easy access to a historical record of all feedback plus the ability to see feedback in real-time, CoLab saves time for Alamos by centralizing critical information and reducing the need to track down email approvals.
Engineering programs today are increasingly more collaborative, multidisciplinary, and geographically distributed than ever before. For teams trying to manage these demands effectively, the status quo involves admin-intensive workflows and slow review cycles. Using CoLab, engineering teams can make better design decisions and work more effectively. The review process becomes more automated and standardized with CoLab, giving engineers the ability to focus on important design work instead of manual administrative tasks.
Through direct CAD/PLM integrations and compatibility with over 60 file formats, CoLab brings together all the information and people involved in a design project so that collaboration is simplified, organized, and efficient. “As a leader in the mining industry, Alamos Gold is a phenomenal company to be collaborating with,” says CoLab CEO Adam Keating. “I think there’s huge potential for what Alamos will be able to do using CoLab to strengthen and streamline reviews. We’re really excited about the value CoLab has to offer the Alamos team.”
