Benefiting from machine information. Ian Wilson, Interpine’s Harvesting Servies Manager recently presented at HarvestTech 2017 in Rotorua. Ian profiled the StanForD information which can provide a wealth of information on machine operating for the harvest contractor. This being from fuel use, downtime, activity and production information. With over 450 attending the conference, Ian presented together with Ian Reid a harvesting contractor from Gippsland, Australia. Ian Reid reaffirmed with those attending how the information provided has been vital in helping him manage his business, because “if you don’t have accurate information, how do you know where you are going and how do you make informed decisions?” Ian Ried uses Interpine and ForestPHD’s STICKS Harvester Cloud Solution for aggregated reporting on StanForD information from all his harvesting and forwarding equipment.
