Codelco’s initial group of customers has now been onboarded onto the MineHub platform, with the remaining expected to be onboarded shortly after.  Codelco’s initial group of customers, which includes its largest and most critical stakeholders, will be the first to experience the transformative capabilities of the platform. Through this innovative solution, customers will have unprecedented access to a range of features designed to streamline operations and enhance collaboration, including the following capabilities:
