Trimble Introduces 4Loads Application for Forestry Operations
Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced
today its 4LoadsTM forestry application, a mobile ticketing solution
that simplifies the creation, access and sharing of harvested timber
data for loggers, foresters and haulers. The new solution provides
forestry workers a simple way to enter and manage load data that
eliminates manual tracking, provides instant access to the data online,
and reduces time to summarize load financial information.
enter load data on their iOS or Android mobile devices in the field,
which automatically synchronizes with the Trimble mobile cloud service
for timely access to data via the Trimble Forestry Mobile Website.
Forestry stakeholders can log into the mobile site to view data, run
reports and customize mobile form menus. 4Loads
provides real-time access to harvest load data that historically has
been captured via slower manual processes that can take weeks or months
to produce data. This real-time insight into remote operations can
shorten reconciliation cycles and provide clear load traceability.
"In response to
industry feedback, Trimble has developed a purpose-built solution that
addresses the challenges of tracking the raw materials supply chain,"
said Brian Holley, mobile solutions sales manager for Trimble's Forestry
Division. "4Loads is a low-cost application that can be used by
loggers, procurement foresters, mills and landowners to ensure loads of
raw materials are properly tracked."
The 4Loads forms are built on the new Mobile Builder platform for Forestry. Trimble's Mobile Builder
enables forestry clients to create customized forms for field workers
to access enterprise data, update data in the field and synchronize date
back to the office in real time.
4Loads is available as a standalone solution or it can be integrated
with Trimble's forestry enterprise solution, a key component of
Trimble's Connected Forest. Leveraging harvest load data through an
enterprise system has proven to increase efficiencies, reduce human
error and adds the ability to deliver critical information to management
regarding remote harvest operations.
4Loads is available now for a 30 day free trial. Find out more and download the application at: https://mobile.trimbleforestry.com/blog. For more information about Trimble's Forestry solutions, call 1-604-697-6400, email: ForestrySales@trimble.com or visit: www.trimble.com/forestry.
