Capturing accurate and auditable data to effectively manage projects is critical for organizations of all sizes. There are numerous technology solutions for collecting, analyzing data for forest management decisions, however, most solutions only do one or two things well. Typical processes require too many steps to use your data, or several solutions are needed to get the data and analysis you need.

The SilvAssist Mobile technology is the heart of the SilvAssist software suite and gives you complete control for accurate data collection in the field. Client-driven pre-loaded options, built-in navigation and RTI functionality, configurable data entry forms and data sychronization directly to Inventory Manager make SilvAssist the easiest-to-use and most robust mobile forestry inventory system on the market today.
Stop waiting for a week, a month or until the end of a project to receive the project data. Say goodbye to manual processes including assessing information from emails and spreadsheets! Start accurately tracking multiple projects in one or many locations with ease. SilvAssist’s Inventory Manager provides digital data DAILY (from SilvAssist Mobile) and is presented in a user-friendly interface. Based on your role in the organization or project, Inventory Manager uses hierarchy and permissions to provide various levels of detail about project status, cruiser information, and more. The platform also allows for easy invoice and audit verification.
Planning, forecasting and tracking history using spreadsheets is time consuming, and the manual processes lead to errors that add time and costs, and reduce the overall success of the project. Events Manager eliminates the need for additional keying and importing data from various resources to produce calculations and reports needed for planning, budgeting, and forecasting – critical in planting, harvesting, and site preparation. Using digital data provided from Events Manager provides accurate outputs for your needs giving you confidence in making critical decisions.
If your project requirements involve growing all plots/data to current year for standing inventory, or ad-hoc future projections and simulations, or supporting harvest planning – SilvAssist Growth and Yield gets the job done.
F4 Tech’s cloud-based Growth and Yield services feature simplified interfaces for easy use and are configured for each client according to how they grow and manage their trees. Data is calculated automatically as it flows into the system, providing accurate on-demand analysis and reporting.
