cross industry optimised


Formed in 2019 by Dr Sharna Glover and Dr Alan Bye, Imvelo is a Zulu term for ecosystem and partnering is at the heart of Imvelo’s operating model.

Being uniquely placed in the field of Industry 4.0 technologies and their application to resources industries, we bring over 25 years track record for executing technology transformations.

Our team supports both the strategy and planning phases of transformation, in addition to working in the field to successfully execute the programs. We are experienced in the full suite of operational technology deployments, business models, stakeholder engagement and capability requirements in addition to a global network of cross-industry technology partners who can accelerate business transformation.

By taking a holistic solutions focussed approach to the delivery of step-change technology, we deliver an integrated approach of new technology, process change and people change management to ensure new technology is successful.

Sharna & Alan – Bicycle

Technology is an enabler of productivity and safety. We are focussed on three key areas of technology: 

Improved resource to reserve conversion through new digital technologies 

The application of robotics and automation to transactional work

The integration of technologies across the value chain that leads to the greatest productivity uplift for industry

Imvelo approach:

Blueprint and Roadmap: Establishment of long-term leadership commitment and a whole of business roadmap that progressively automates sub-systems, enabling a phased, risk-based approach that accelerates early value and ensures capital efficiency.

Capability: Development of a systems integration capability, supported by strategic partnerships and site-based proving grounds, to adopt and adapt leading technologies across the business.  Partnering for speed and building internal capability by attracting talent and enabling new roles to support a more diverse workforce and grow competitive advantage.

Stakeholder Engagement:  Engagement of all stakeholders through transformation that creates significant change by incorporating organisational change management approaches to underpin a successful outcome.

Business Models: Development of a commercial strategy that will engage new partners and provide flexibility with existing partners to enable the Business Transformation.

Base Infrastructure: Understanding the base infrastructure required to enable the rapid deployment and scaling of site-based digital technologies, with respect to capital investment, scope and schedule.

Continues Improvement: Embedment within an existing CI framework or application of a disciplined approach to measure performance and ensure innovation implementation is yielding business value. Technologies such as automation offer the opportunity to lock-in improvement initiatives so that performance erosion does not occur over time.

Proving Grounds: Dedicated operational environment to design and test the future ‘concept of operation’ for the business. Once proven the solutions can be replicated across the business.
