RUL has traded in the past 12 months in a A53-80c band and was capitalised at A$137 million today.

The agreement with Proquire will see its software products offered as part of Accenture's Connected Mine suite, on a subscription basis, through Accenture.

Connected Mine aims to break down traditional mining data siloes and provide valuable, timely information to decision makers through a combination of mobile, cloud and analytics technologies. RPMGlobal says it "extends this capability by providing integrated mine planning capabilities".

"Working together, Accenture and RPM can bring mine engineering insight together with operational acumen into one central system for analysis and decision making," RPMGlobal CEO Richard Mathews said.

A number of early adopters had already "shown interest" in the collaboration.

"This insight will facilitate the ability for end users to predict end of period outcomes so they can adjust their plans mid shift if needed," Mathews said.

"If a change is warranted the system will distribute the new plan to the team in the mine in real time."
