5 January 2020

Treemetrics, the pioneering forestry software company, has announced the official opening of its new Global HQ on the South Mall in Cork city.

An Tánaiste, Mr Simon Coveney, TD, Minster for Foreign Affairs and Trade, marked the occasion, as guest of honour, by unveiling a commemorative plaque and also by launching Treemetrics latest mobile product innovation. The HarvestSync App enables automated collection and transmission of key production data from machines working in forests around the world.

Enda Keane, Managing Director, Treemetrics, said “2019 has been a year of product refinement. Working with our key clients around the world, such as, Ireland’s state forestry company Coillte we have taken years of software code developments and built it into a pioneering mobile App to enable us to scale rapidly and globally.”

“Building on the success of our cloud-based data platform, ForestHQ, which has led to the digital transformation of the traditional forest industry, we have now perfected a cutting edge App – HarvestSync, which is designed to support Forest owners and managers through enabling easier collection of data and streaming this onto our ForestHQ platform.”

Enda Keane, Treemetrics Co-Founder, continued his comments: “Moving to this larger office premises, as well as opening satellite offices in Naas, Co Kildare and London, will facilitate the expansion we are planning in the coming year and beyond, which will allow us to better support our growing list of International clients. 2020 will be about rapid client acquisition and scaling our platform”.

Increasing amounts of relevant data from multiple sources, such as earth observation, drone, ground based lidar, traditional inventory and harvesting machines can now be processed and analysed in real-time for clients. This means they make informed decisions to reduce costs, increase efficiency and product recovery and therefore maintain and increase profitability.”

Mr Keane also alluded to the inevitability of Treemetrics opening in-market offices in key target regions, such as, North and South America, as well as, pending announcements regarding partnership agreements in Oceania.
