“One of our core values is customer service and support,” says Alistair Cook, CEO of BID Group. “This partnership with Cumul8 will help us build a new set of standards for our customers that will move them to another level in terms of understanding raw data so they can make better-informed decisions faster, and save time and money.” 

The Cumul8–BID Group solution will provide a live, mobile, visual understanding of all of the data being generated at the operating level in individual mills and between mills. It allows users to gain a better understanding of their machine data and interpret that data in a meaningful way. 

“This is an outstanding opportunity for BID and Eight to work together to solve a data analytics challenge in the forestry industry,” says Rory Armes, CEO of Eight Solutions. “Our goal is to equip BID Group with the right visual data analytic tools to assist their clients in understanding their individual company data, from the equipment on the ground floor right up to the executive offices.”
