CorePlan vs Colleagues Matrixx compared for drilling contractors

What is Colleagues Matrixx?

Colleagues Matrixx is a bespoke software development company that has worked with clients across a range of industries including mining and drilling since 2005.

Colleagues Matrixx for drilling

Colleagues Matrixx have built two digital products that can be adapted for use by drilling contractors: Matrixx Mobile and Matrixx Portal.

Matrixx Mobile and Matrixx Portal for drilling

Matrixx Mobile is a digital forms solution that can be customised to capture any data that is normally collected on paper in the field. Using the Matrixx Mobile app, drillers can enter daily drilling report (plod) data and send it directly to the Matrixx Portal for management and basic reporting by the office team on metrics such as operating time and metres drilled.

There is also the option to purchase additional modules to pad out the Matrixx Portal workflow, including invoicing, maintenance and payroll.

A paperless solution for drilling contractors?

At the time of writing, it Colleagues’ Matrixx offers the capability for additional capability to capture other data such as take 5s. However we recommend you do your own research to determine the capability to digitise forms and store other documentation.
