Striving for Balance and Efficiencies, the Natural Resource Sector Turns to the New Remsoft Operational Planning Solution.

June 26th, 2013

FREDERICTON – June 26, 2013 – Remsoft Inc., a world leader in optimization and decision modeling  technology allowing organizations to maximize the performance of their assets, today announced the launch of their Operational Planning solution (OP). Remsoft’s OP solution will help the natural resource industry optimize their weekly and monthly operations, and connect the demand side of the equation to the on-the-ground activity.

Remsoft's solution tackles the complex scheduling challenges encountered by forestry companies at the point of harvesting – scheduling crews to the right areas to produce the right logs at the right time, allocating the right logs to the right mills, and ensuring mill demands and contract commitments are met.

This is a complex “push and pull” value chain with lots of moving parts. Striking the balance between supply and demand while meeting all the business objectives and constraints is an incredibly difficult planning process.

“The benefits of using optimization technology rather than relying on rote planning or a basic spreadsheet can be measured in the millions of dollars to a company’s bottom line,” says Andrea Feunekes, co-founder and co-CEO, Remsoft. “It can also help decrease an organization’s overall environmental footprint, reducing waste, lowering the amount of energy used in transporting wood to manufacturing facilities and other benefits."

Remsoft has met with organizations from all corners of the globe who have expressed their challenge of getting it right on-the-ground – maximizing efficiencies, lowering costs and meeting mill demands. Delivered wood cost is a significant component of the wood manufacturing business. It can account for up to 40% and even as high as 60% of the total manufacturing cost, depending on the region and final product.  

“The stories we hear from all companies are similar” says Remsoft Vice President Forestry, Doug Jones. “Sales and operational planning – connecting the demand side of the equation to the activities in the forest and at the roadside, is an area where virtually everyone we speak with thinks they could get more efficient, more productive, more proactive and less reactive.  This is a natural fit for Remsoft, so we have really focused our technology at solving it. We are coming to market with it now. It's ready, we're ready, this is our future.”
