Portable Applications for Log Manager – Log Scaling

Logical Systems believes that portable applications do not need to be simple data entry programs. They can be tools that help you manage and grow your business. The portable Log Scaling application is a flexible and easy to use product that can quickly adapt to the changing business environment. What the Log Scaling application from Logical Systems provides is a robust yet easy to use product that provides your employees with information they need to perform their duties better and provides your vendors with professional documents that reflect positively on your business.

The scaling application is flexible enough to purchase logs the way you do. Whether you purchase all logs in the yard or travel throughout the region to purchase logs on the landing, we can handle it. Whether your buyer is in the office every day or is only seen at monthly or quarterly meetings, we can handle it. The scaling application can receive data from these devices from anywhere and can update them with new suppliers or prices at the same time.

The application supports the purchase of logs directly into the yard, the purchase of logs using buyers on the road and the receiving of previously purchased logs into the yard. Each task is simple and straight forward to use. Lookup lists are used throughout the application to assist scalers when needed. The implementation of these lists is done in a way they are helpful, not intrusive. Why be forced to use a list to select a supplier you see twice a day every day? The scaling application from Logical Systems allows you to use the lists as needed, not all the time.

This highly customizable application can be configured to meet almost any need. An ability to tag any or all logs provides the level of inventory controlled required. There is support for multiple scale rules and the ability to scale specified species and/or grades on a specific scale rule.

This application eliminates the need for yard personnel to manually record the identity of logs that are transferred into the mill. A portable handheld device equipped with a barcode scanner is used to scan the barcode tag on the log or the tag can be removed and taken to the office for scanning at the end of the day or shift.
