“We have used both Plant Wizard and Survey Wizard for the past 6 years and have found both invaluable to our operations. With JRP’s support, we have integrated our safety program and payroll with the standard Plant Wizard features to create a seamless record keeping system that is the backbone of our field operations. I look forward to the introduction of SNAP versions of both Plant and Survey Wizard to further integrate related aspects of our business.”

“Timberline, like many other reforestation contractors, was required to purchase or lease the Plant Wizard software as part of our contractual obligations with some of our forest company clients. On the surface this seemed like an expensive and onerous proposition. Our time frame for setting up and becoming familiar with the software was very short but the staff at JRP Solutions Ltd. was very helpful. Both my partner and I received one-on-one tutorials and as we used the new software any questions that arose were answered promptly either by phone or email. Once we started using Plant Wizard, various ad hoc spreadsheets and tracking systems that we had used previously for stock deliveries, seedling allocations and tracking of planter daily tallies became redundant. This software also gave us the ability to arrange thaw requests and arrange deliveries of seedlings in a more efficient manner. We are now able to track seedling inventories at the nurseries or storage facilities. Plant Wizard has become a real time and cost saving program for Timberline. Previously, our planter daily tallies were entered into a spreadsheet in the field (remote location) and were then emailed to the office where the bookkeeper would then re-enter the data into the payroll program. This system allowed for errors in payroll to be created. Early on, after starting to use Plant Wizard, we saw that if we could export the planter data from Plant Wizard directly into our payroll program we could help eliminate errors and save time and bookkeeper costs. We approached JRP Solutions and they were able to create a custom report to achieve this goal. This time and cost saving measure alone has allowed us to recoup our initial and maintenance costs.

We have embraced Plant Wizard. Whether our client uses Plant Wizard, and sends us a data download for a project, or we have to manually input data to set up a project in Plant Wizard for our clients that still do not use Plant Wizard we use this software for all of our projects. “

“We have been using the SNAP program since 2008 as part of our Silvicultural Effectiveness Monitoring program. In the field SNAP has saved us time and simplified field surveys by summarizing sampling data and calculating confidence levels. In the office it has saved us a significant amount of staff time through its ability to summarize and compare data, generate reports and transfer and compile information from other district offices. JRP has continually worked to improve their software product and their responses when requesting technical support have been prompt and helpful. SNAP has been a very useful resource to our Silvicultural Effectiveness Monitoring program.”
