Hard Dollar Sr. VP, Ron Babich, Presents at SME 2012

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Hard Dollar Corporation, category creator and leader of Project Cost Management (PCM) solutions, today announced that Senior Vice President, Ron Babich, will present on "Project Reconciliation - The 5 Keys to Mine Cost and Productivity Visibility" today, at 4:45 pm at the SME 2012 show in Seattle, WA. The presentation is hosted in Room 307 in the Coal and Energy: Business Process Improvement section.

"SME 2012 is the mining event of the year, and the opportunity to network with industry peers at this venue is invaluable," remarked Ron Babich, Sr. Vice President. "I look forward to sharing information to help companies create cost and productivity visibility through the managed interaction of resources, cost, escalation, cash flow, earned value reporting, and scheduling (from either Microsoft or Oracle's Primavera) throughout the entire life of the mining project."

Babich explains, "Most companies base plans on the assumption that their forecasts may vary by 5% to 10% next year, not that things will change by 60%. Factors influencing the global mining industry are moving to a new level of extremes, driving companies to consider more dynamic scenarios than ever before. This session is focused on understanding outside cost drivers and how to better plan for them," Babich concluded.
