Remsoft and Weyerhaeuser will present on Optimized Operations Management at ForestTECHx, a leading forest management technology conference on the latest technologies, innovations and practical tools to increase forest operations productivity.

Remsoft is partnering with Weyerhaeuser to speak on the topic of Optimized Operations Management at the upcoming ForestTECHx in March, 2020.

ForestTECHx is a leading forest management technology series on the latest technologies, innovations and practical tools to increase forest operations productivity. It is New Zealand and Australia’s most popular conference on new technology and innovation in the forest industry, and it returns to Vancouver, Canada in 2020.

Remsoft and Weyerhaeuser will open the conference’s first technology session on Tuesday March 17th at 2:15pm.  Doug Jones, Remsoft Senior Vice President, Client Solutions & Innovation and David Gilluly, Weyerhaeuser Senior Manager, Timberlands Supply Chain will present on Optimized Operations Management of US Pacific Northwest and Southeastern Timberlands with Remsoft Operations Cloud Solution.

The presentation will demonstrate how Weyerhaeuser was able to improve operational planning and scheduling across its supply chain with Remsoft Operations, a cloud-powered solution that provides an enterprise view of planning and operational data.

“There’s a compelling story here on the efficiency and productivity gains Weyerhaeuser was able to achieve by streamlining and automating its operations,” said Doug Jones.  “They moved from a proliferation of spreadsheets and multiple systems to a unified solution that promotes visibility and improves outcomes by letting people easily access and share data to inform daily decisions.”

The operational forest supply chain is complex and constantly changing, and Remsoft Operations enables shared intelligence to drive agile, effective collaboration and improve daily operational decision-making. With built-in analytics and dashboards, it provides real-time scheduling and information visibility to manage harvest, delivery, wood flow and inventory on a volumetric and financial basis.
