In the timber industry, the demand is constantly rising and the companies need to adapt to the market changes. That’s why investing in tools that guarantee the success of the operations is becoming something of great importance, especially when one thinks about the profitability matter throughout the whole process.
Our team is working with different companies worldwide and helping them to become more dynamic and efficient in their processes.
Potential clients sometimes ask us, “Is Timbeter really worth it?” Therefore, we present some facts that will make sure that the right investment brings results in several stages of the process for different sectors of the timber industry.
With manual measurement, traditionally made in the factories’ forests and yards, some deadlocks are certain, and, with the help of technology, they become much easier to solve. These problems are:
- Having to measure large amounts of wood in little time
- Wrong results
- Incorrect data insertion or loss of data
- Difficulties to check all the steps, bringing losses throughout the operation
- Issues in the supply chain, causing bottlenecks to logistics and sales.
Keeping inventories up-to-date and organized is important to maximize value of each log. If the process takes too much time, the wood may lose value or simply have to be discarded or used in activities that are not its primary purpose.
For those reasons, we decided to create Timbeter, which benefits are:
- Fast measurements, results which improve productivity
- Digital data
- Reduction of human error
- Easing the supply chain processes
- Complete reports
- Organized inventories
A professional digital caliper, for example, costs between € 900 and € 4,000. Even though it is a precision instrument, the use of the caliper for measuring logs still takes time, since the logs are individually measured highly dependent on the human factor.
Other applications for measuring wood digitally can cost from € 9,000.00 (vehicle-based measurement tool), which, given the proportions, weakens the profit margin of companies and still has to rely on other auxiliary tools, such as specific tablet models, laser markers and label readers.
With Timbeter, measurements for the picture-based package cost from € 2.00 per measurement. In addition, if you are looking for complete digitalized data, human error reduction and detailed, compile-ready results, our monthly licenses offer unlimited measurements for a very attractive price compared to the examples given above.
