“After retiring I started my own Forestry Consulting Service (Sharp’s Forestry Consulting LLC). I struggled trying to find a computerized software program that I could use to create professional-looking timber harvest maps, timber harvest plans, etc.I mentioned this to several Forester friends of mine, finally, I was recommended to contact Jesse and Carolyn Adams at North Point Geographic Solutions in Duluth Minnesota. From the moment we met, I felt this company was going to be able to assist me. We went over in detail the type of product I was searching for. I wanted something that would save office time, was intuitive, easy to use, could be accessed in the field on smart devices, and would create professional-looking reports. Jesse sent me the software he created in SmartFor a few weeks after our meeting. I was ecstatic even after only using the software for a short time. The software is internet-based so I can write up timber appraisals anywhere I have an internet connection. The software has saved me so much office time, now I can spend more time in the field. As with any software development, it is a work in progress. North Point Geographic Solutions continue to send updates as needed that continue to make the software even better. I would recommend any Natural Resource Professional looking for an internet-based GIS Program that works with ArcMap to contact North Point Geographic Solutions. To close, the support has been the best, always willing to help; most importantly issues have been resolved quickly.”
