The possibility of integrating operational and management information from different planting areas was the reason why Agro Empresa Forestal S.A. (AF) has opted for the INFLOR Forest solution. The Uruguayan company operates on more than 100,000 hectares of forest and agricultural plantations in Uruguay, Chile and Brazil. Agro Empresa Forestal’s main objective is to integrate the costing data to the forest asset register of the planting plots, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The implementation of the INFLOR Forest solution at AF began in January, with the activities planning. In this phase, the solution will encompass the Forestry Register, GIS and Siviculture modules, according to Carlos Albuquerque, Commercial Director at INFLOR.
Jaime Flores, Forestry Planning Manager at AF, points out that the company’s goal − with the implementation of the INFLOR Forest − is to have an integrated system that concentrates information on operation and costs. “Having a unique and integrated information system, according to international standards, is a challenge for a company like ours, which manages assets in different countries,” he notes. Flores adds that there is a huge expectation for the beginning of the system deployment, for it is clear that the INFLOR Forest system will also ease the integration of new planting areas.
According to Jaime Flores, AF has plans after the implementation of the functions already contracted: to evaluate the expansion of the use of the tool for the Logistic, Harvest and Forest Inventory modules, in which the company is also interested. The implementation of the Forestry Register, GIS and Silviculture modules should be completed by the end of April.
