Summit plans to streamline both spatial and attribute business processes with Trimble’s LRM integrated technology platform, the company said in the press release.

Trimble’s LRM solution is an intuitive, interactive and spatially-aware enterprise application for managing land and forestry operations.

LRM is a key component of Trimble’s Connected Forest solutions, which manage the full raw materials lifecycle of planning, planting, growing, harvesting and transport.

“We chose Trimble’s LRM solution because it can be configured to fit our company’s needs. As we expand, this flexible system will allow us to add any new assets we acquire seamlessly, making Trimble the logical choice for our forestry business,” said Rikki Green, harvest planner for Summit Forests.

The LRM deployment at Summit Forests will support more efficient operational practices and provide a common platform for the entire company to access real-time information about the land base.

Summit Forests New Zealand Limited (Summit Forests) is a New Zealand registered subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation Japan and Sumitomo Australia PTY LTD.

Summit Forests has forest holdings of 38,000 hectares under CFL, leasehold, freehold and various management agreements in Northland.
