Fredericton, NB, Canada (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
It's the perfect match--Canada's Advanced Analytics software developer, Remsoft Inc., and Brazil's forest industry giant, Fibria Cellulose SA, a global pulp production and sustainability leader. The match was made official today with the announcement of an agreement whereby Remsoft will provide the Remsoft Solution Suite and services as end-to-end support for Fibria's growing operations.
"Symbiotic" is another way to describe the relationship in which each of the two companies has something the other needs and wants. They each bring something to the table from which, ultimately, they both can benefit.
“We are thrilled to be working with the Fibria team,” says Remsoft VP Forestry, Doug Jones, “They are leaders in the global forestry market and we believe we can add real value to their business process through intelligent forest planning.”
Remsoft will be implementing standardized optimization models across Fibria’s planning regions for both strategic and tactical planning. This will help Fibria to quickly and comprehensively plan for and assess capital and operational expenditures, balance the supply and demand chain from harvest to mill with minimal waste, improve insight to the operational resources needed to execute the tactical plan, quantify trade-offs between management objectives and make informed decisions.
Thanks to the forestry trained innovators at Remsoft, Fibria will have powerful software tools with advanced analytics for optimized planning and scheduling while Remsoft will have a flagship forestry company to point to as a successful user of its innovative Solution Suite. Together, these two respected names will help make sustainability a key element of the world's forest industry as the world steps up to take responsibility for its environmental well being and future.
“Fibria operates in a highly competitive business. We have large areas of eucalyptus and high demand of wood for the mills in Jacareí, Três Lagoas and Aracruz. It is strategically important for us to have the ability to sustainably manage our complex operations,” explains Fibria General Manager, Caio Eduardo Zanardo, “Due to Remsoft’s market size and experience in developing technology for forest planning, they were the choice for our company. We are looking forward to working with their team and are confident that the partnership will be successful.”
Remsoft Solutions are the industry standard for forestry companies wanting to make the world a better place by protecting the environment and going about its business in a responsible, eco-friendly way.
