SmartFor Press Release

North Point Geographic Solutions

Duluth, MN (November 26th, 2019) — You spend your time managing renewable forest resources, but the resource that you can never get enough of is time. Take back your time by working smarter with SmartFor.

SmartFor is designed for commercial and private foresters who need more efficient ways to manage their workflows, data and time. When you’re in the field, you need access to your data to be most effective at managing timber sales, plantings, harvests and more. With SmartFor, the technology is here to readily manage your data, whether in the office or the field. Don’t waste time doubling up your data entries on paper. Enter it once and see real-time updates and collaboration with colleagues and harvesters, as well as detailed reporting and financial management. Take back your time by working smarter with SmartFor.

SmartFor was developed by North Point Geographic Solutions by collaborating directly with foresters and forest managers. We are an Esri Silver Partner and utilize Esri’s ArcGIS Online for mapping and data management. This means you can customize SmartFor based on your existing ArcGIS Online map data and layers, or if you are not already an Esri customer, you can easily set up an account and customize your data or let us help you with your data setup. SmartFor is affordable and works for both Commercial forestry operations with multiple user roles, as well as Private foresters looking for ways to streamline their processes. One SmartFor customer recently told us: “I love it! After 44 years of working as a forester, I can’t wait to work on SmartFor.”
