Caterpillar, the worldwide brand that is synonymous with big yellow machines, work with many of the large resource companies in Western Australia. They developed Minestar, an application that enables Perth-based operators to remotely control machines across the state. Efficiency is key, and improving their application to shave off time for any task is a huge multi-million dollar saving for any organisation using it.
