MACA, a contract mining company offering civil earthworks and other related services, required a critical communication connection for equipment when deploying and mobilising staff in West Australia. MACA required a flexible solution as the project duration was unknown and their current provider only offered a rigid, 12-month fixed term contract. If the project was short, this contract timeframe would result in significant unnecessary costs for MACA which was not commercially appealing.
MACA needed a reliable connection for its mining contract workers that was reliable, could be scaled up or down depending on need and was flexible in terms of service duration.
MACA first implemented Orion’s geo-remote connectivity solution more than 10 years ago, the connection enabled staff to communicate anywhere in the world, giving MACA the competitive edge they wanted. The initial partnership was a success and since then Orion has assisted MACA with more than a dozen additional projects. For MACA, the reliability and flexibility, coupled with knowledgeable and accessible support has been the key to the longstanding relationship.
“Since that first project, I think we have spoken with Orion on an almost weekly basis. We joke about giving them key cards to the office because they are here so often. We have relied on the Orion team to deliver connectivity for our projects and in every case, they have been reliable and flexible” says Harry Plange, IT Manager at MACA commented
