OREANDA-NEWS. Trimble announced today that Summit Forests New Zealand Limited has selected Trimble's Land Resource Manager (LRM) solution to enhance its operational flexibility and support process reengineering. Summit plans to streamline both spatial and attribute business processes with Trimble's LRM integrated technology platform.   

Trimble's LRM solution is an intuitive, interactive and spatially-aware enterprise application for managing land and forestry operations. The solution addresses the critical functions of forest resource planning, management and decision support with flexible customer-specific business workflows. LRM is a key component of Trimble's Connected Forest solutions, which manage the full raw materials lifecycle of planning, planting, growing, harvesting and transport.

"Summit plans to restructure its information systems to be tightly integrated into daily business processes and best industry practices," said Ken Moen, general manager of Trimble's Forestry Division. "Our focus will be on enabling Summit to reach these goals with the deployment of the LRM solution and to deliver increased data value and improved decision making."

"We chose Trimble's LRM solution because it can be configured to fit our company's needs. As we expand, this flexible system will allow us to add any new assets we acquire seamlessly, making Trimble the logical choice for our forestry business," said Rikki Green, harvest planner for Summit Forests. "Trimble also has an experienced technical support team and a range of other solutions that we may look to implement in the future."

The LRM deployment at Summit Forests will support more efficient operational practices and provide a common platform for the entire company to access real-time information about the land base.

Trimble's Forestry Division offers land, forest and fibre management solutions that improve the productivity and operations for some of the world's most recognized integrated forest product companies, forest land owners, timberland investment, conservation, state and federal departments as well as international food processing companies involved in environmental, social and economic land management.
