Our story

Timber Trading

Timber as a product is traded both nationally and internationally – importing and exporting. TimberSmart has solutions which cater for all of these trading activities including retail management. These solutions commence with the creation of sales orders as customers purchase stock. A variant to this is the sale of consignment stock. These orders can be met from inventory or the creation of purchase orders to acquire those products which are required to fulfil the sales order…

The TimberSmart timber trading system can send and receive all documents electronically or in hardcopy format. The system also allows for the processing of timber – particularly by third parties. Standard TimberSmart despatch, load management, and invoicing capabilities are included. The system also includes extensive reporting and on screen queries.

TimberSmart Inventory Management

The TimberSmart is an information management system developed for the timber industry by a team with a unique combination of timber industry knowledge, database development skills, project management and managing consulting skills.

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.
