FMG selects Trimble Forestry’s solutions

30 November 2020

Forest Management Group, which includes Forest Management (FML), Tasman Forest Management (TFM), and Forest Management North Island (FMNI), has selected Trimble Forestry’s Log Inventory & Management System (LIMS) to manage its extensive forestry operations in New Zealand.

FMG’s installation of LIMS includes access to the Connected Forest Exchange (CFX), a collaborative cloud solution that allows log load and scale information to be viewed on mobile phones, tablets, or via a web browser, providing visibility into key metrics and improved timber security for FMG’s operations.

LIMS and CFX are part of Trimble Forestry’s Connected Forest Business portfolio. LIMS provides management control over all phases of timberland, woodland, yard, and mill operations. It combines the features of a log or timber accounting system with features for silviculture, harvesting, contractor payables, wood or fibre procurement, wood trading or sales, consumption, and comprehensive reporting and planning.

CFX aggregates fibre supply data in easy-to-view and share dashboards, enabling better supply chain coordination and efficiency. To learn more about Trimble’s Connected Forest™ solutions, visit forestry.trimble.com, email forestrysales@trimble.com or call Rotorua, New Zealand at +64 7348 0308.
