3LOG Systems has announced a partnership with Esri to offer the long-awaited capability of incorporating log inventory management with spatial analytics technology for a complete log chain of custody solution.

“3LOG Systems is very excited to be partnering with Esri to the benefit of all of our customers,” said Hassan Farzadeh, CEO of 3LOG Systems. “We have many of our users asking for a deeper integration with the Esri platform beyond the typical ETL process. This will allow our architectures to be linked at the programmatic level.”

The forest industry’s continued drive at efficiency has opened the door for much needed improvements in tracking every tree, from seedling to mill. Supply chain management, log theft prevention, Forest Sustainability Certification (FSC), and mill forecasting can all be better addressed through the addition of the geospatial component of 3LOG’s existing solutions.

“Esri is happy to partner with 3LOG to work together to meet our customers’ needs,” said Scot McQueen, Esri commercial forestry account manager. “The newly developed understanding of our spatial capabilities and 3LOG’s topnotch solutions is destined to create innovative approaches to how our forests are managed.”
