WA mining company, Red 5, Turn to DyFlex and SAP S/4HANA for Rapid Implementation

Red 5 Limited, a Western Australia mining company, acquired Darlot and King Of The Hills Goldmines and turned to DyFlex Solutions and SAP S/4HANA to implement new systems. Implementation speed was key to operational readiness for the company.


Red 5 completed two landmark acquisitions, catapulting them from an Australian mining explorer to producer. They immediately began the search for a solution and implementation partner that could quickly deploy a fully integrated ERP system for their digital core. The solution had to meet the needs of their head office in Perth as well as the operational needs of the new mine sites, incorporating business processes for Finance, Operations, Procurement, Inventory, and Maintenance without compromising quality.

Speed of implementation was vitally important. Commercially and operationally, there was an imperative to stand up a system to a tight deadline.

“We effectively needed to transform our business in Australia overnight, with new staff, a large asset base and a Transition Services Agreement in place. We needed an end-to-end solution that could be implemented quickly and with minimal risk.”

John Tasovac, CFO


SAP S/4HANA from DyFlex Solutions was selected. As a next generation ERP Business suite, S/4HANA would allow Red 5 to take advantage of a world class solution that is always up to date with the latest innovations.

DyFlex Solutions deep understanding of mining meant that they were able to clearly demonstrate the ability to implement SAP S/4HANA. As one of the mine sites previously used SAP, DyFlex could implement a solution whilst;

  • Simplifying processes and improving data
  • Maintaining process continuity where it maintained efficiency and quality
  • Minimise the impact on the current user experience (UI)
  • Reducing the need to roll out an extensive retraining program
  • Complete the project within 15 weeks


Red 5 went live with SAP S4/HANA within the agreed timeframe. The transition was described by Red 5 as seamless. All the major functions across Multi-Company Finance, Procurement, Inventory and Maintenance operated from day one. Today, Red 5 are continuing to realise the benefits of SAP S/4HANA.
