Highway 99 provides managed IT services for many companies in different parts of the mining industry, and we’d love to do the same for you. We can shoulder the bulk of your IT burden, both in the office and up and down long supply chains. We work to make IT-based downtime a thing of the past, improving your ability to collaborate in the office and in the field, ensuring you have access to all of your data and applications at remote sites, and hardening your systems against both honest mistakes and deliberate attacks.
Companies in mineral extraction have had to become very agile and to embrace the latest advances in information technology to stay profitable. All that innovation comes with its fair share of IT headaches, of course. Highway 99 can help by making sure your systems actually do what they are supposed to, allowing you to spend your time where it is needed most.
Our team’s regular working hours are weekdays 7am to 6pm, and we are available to handle emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Would you like to learn how we could remove the burden of IT from your organization and make sure things ‘just work?’
Cloud services are just as vulnerable to human error, data losses and attacks as on-site systems. In fact, you may be even more vulnerable if your cloud services are inconsistently updated or incorrectly configured relative to the needs of your industry.
Highway 99 can ensure that your cloud services are configured correctly, that access is restricted to the people you intend to use the system, that all important updates are conducted in a timely manner, and that all of your data is backed up regularly. This won’t make you immune to computer problems, but it will protect you against known threats.
We want to learn what you need from an IT department, how you use technology and how your current solutions trip you up. Only then can we start talking about how to make it all work better.
The digitization journey for the mining industry has often been a rocky one – pun intended. A secure, accessible and process-oriented cloud solution could let you spend your time and effort driving profits, not babysitting computers and documents.
Much like asset management for your heavy equipment, IT asset management allows you to optimize your IT investments and reduce business risk. Good asset management means fewer idle machines, long service life and lower operating costs. You achieve this via productive maintenance and upgrades, by knowing precisely where your assets are and who has them checked out, and by disposing of assets at their appropriate end-of-life. All of this improves your medium and long-term capital planning.
Data security is everyone’s job:

Follow the 3-2-1 rule for data backup:
