New forestry software for Wood Harvesting, Silviculture and Forest Services
WoodForce™ is forestry software for loggers, other forest contractors and forest companies. It is designed to streamline forest operations like wood harvesting, silviculture and forest improvement. WoodForce™ is comprised of web-based office management component, a mobile app for field operations as well as an on-board harvester application. WoodForce™ works even without a network connection.
WoodForce™ supports a changing trend where progressive companies now contract for several forest companies and do the planning with one system. Since the contractor understands local conditions best, forest harvesting operations become more efficient when the contractor has more direct control over work plans and scheduling for its own fleet of harvesters and trucks.
