Have you ever thought how much information that is keyed into your management system may have been previously input into another system? Chances are very high that it has.

The TimberXchange (TX) has been developed to do away with multiple keying of the same data. Essentially the TimberXchange electronically transforms and translates the data from the sending system to that required for the receiving system. In conjunction with commonly available electronic communication technologies, the TimberXchange enables data to be sent from one system and imported quickly into the receiving system.

The benefits of using the TimberXchange include:

  • Cement strategic alliances with your customers.
  • Offer your customers documents in any format they require.
  • Map your codes to the master list.
  • This allows TX to convert a document from the senders codes to the receivers codes.
  • Eliminates postage and handling.
  • Eliminates data entry costs
  • Integrates seamlessly with TimberSmart via TimberSmart Document Transfer.
  • Interfaces with other systems can be built by your application supplier.
