USA: Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced a partnership with 3LOG Systems, the makers of the preeminent log inventory management solution in the world forestry marketplace. Together, Esri and 3LOG will offer the long-awaited capability of incorporating log inventory management with spatial analytics technology for a complete log chain-of-custody solution. The ability to track and visualize forestry assets at every point along the supply chain allows natural resource managers to make decisions that are more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable.
“3LOG Systems is very excited to be partnering with Esri to the benefit of all of our customers,” said Hassan Farzadeh, CEO of 3LOG Systems. “We have many of our users asking for a deeper integration with the Esri platform beyond the typical ETL [extract, transform, and load] process. This will allow our architectures to be linked at the programmatic level.”
The forest industry’s continual drive toward efficiency has opened the door for much-needed improvements in tracking every tree, from seedling to mill. Supply chain management, log theft prevention, Forest Sustainability Certification (FSC), and mill forecasting can all be better addressed through the addition of the geospatial component of 3LOG’s existing solutions.
“Esri is happy to partner with 3LOG to meet our customers’ needs,” said Scot McQueen, Esri commercial forestry account manager. “The newly developed integration of our spatial analytics capabilities and 3LOG’s top-notch solutions is destined to create innovative approaches to how our forests are managed.”
