Resource managers and planners from, New Zealand, Australia, Uruguay, Brazil, Chile, Latvia, Ireland, Canada and the United States attended the Remsoft International Modeling Conference event held last week in Canada’s East Coast. The focus of the event was to discuss how they are using Remsoft data analytics and modeling solutions to provide insights and intelligence to improve asset performance, sustainability, and operational efficiency. In attendance were representatives from some of the world’s largest forestry companies, consultants, timber investment management organizations, governments and universities.

“This is the only event of its kind”, says Remsoft VP, Forestry Doug Jones, “We bring together people who are committed to sustainable planning and who count on our company to provide them with the solutions and expertise to help them connect the dots between best laid plans and on the ground actions.”

A common theme within the conference was integrated planning between the longer term strategic direction of their forests to short-term on the ground supply chain planning. This included presentations from several of the international attendees including Latvijas Valsts Mezi who manages the state owned forests of Latvia, Nelson Forest Ltd. in New Zealand, and Coillte, managers of Ireland’s state forests. These presentations focused on the benefits of full lifecycle planning from operational to strategic and how Remsoft is used to help connect their business objectives to their operational activities.

“It was great to demonstrate how Remsoft solutions are being used to link our tactical and operational activities to the strategic business objectives of our company. Adding Woodstock Scheduler to our tool kit enhances our planning processes, reducing cost and delivering ‘best fit’ solutions.” Marion Hughes, Resources Forester, Nelson Management Ltd (Managers of Nelson Forests Ltd) – New Zealand

First time attendee, John Landy, Resource Team Leader from Coillte in Ireland comments, “The Remsoft user conference was a great opportunity to meet with other planners from around the world and learn how they are benefiting from Remsoft as they address their operational planning challenges.”

Three members from Latvijas valsts mezi team attended the User Group including first time attendee and presenter, Ilga Berzkalna, Head of Development. “I came for a forestry modeling conference and ended up eating fiddleheads and lobster, learning about the forestry carbon market and most importantly understanding how important Remsoft is not only to our organization but to the global forestry sector. It was an excellent event.”

South America’s Eldorado Brasil has one of the largest and most modern pulp mills in the world and is competitive with its business model that focuses on highly productive forests and innovative planning and logistics. A second time presenter at the Remsoft User Group, this year’s topic focused on Eldorado’s Silviculture Plan Innovation and Challenges.

“Remsoft is leading our industry and is our partner in sustainability. It was a great event and I look forward to where Remsoft will take us in the future.” Bruno Domanowski, Forest Projects Specialist Eldorado – Brazil

A leader in forest carbon offsets, Finite Carbon presented on the Regulatory Environment: Timber/Carbon Optimization in the USA and how Remsoft has become the standard in all their analysis.

“In a highly regulated environment, Remsoft is the best solution available today to help us conduct our analysis and understand the financial implications of our decisions”, Tim McAbee, Director, Finite Carbon.
