very intuitive software. I really like the fact that it is used on an iphone app!

Saves time with data processing

PROS

Great product for a reasonable price. The fact that it is an app on the iphone means I don't have to purchase an additional hand held data collector.

CONS

I wish I could save templates for common reports that I write. I have to paste data into excel spreadsheets every time I prepare reports

Forest Metrix

I’ve had a great experience with Tig and the rest of the staff at Forest Metrix. They’re very responsive when any issues have come up. I’d highly recommend both them and the FM system to anybody!

PROS

The FM system and customer support is excellent.

CONS

Nothing! I’ve had a great experience with them.

Promising from the beginning but has not improved in areas that present challenges for me...

PROS

Great charts and tables A lot of options if you know how to use them If you are technically savvy, then this is the way to go!

CONS

Keeping up with FileMaker and program updates that change the page layout and some of the formatting is a minor inconvenience.

Great features, easy to use, great quality, and customer support is excellent.

It has helped save time in the office. I can calculate everything right in the field with the tap of a finger. Even estimated values of the timber.

PROS

So many features and functions, and after playing with it, to get to know the software, very easy to use. And you can use it on your ipad, which is great with mapping apps and built in gps.

CONS

It takes a few trial runs to get to know the software, which it does with any new piece of equipment. Some of the excel reports might scare you at first, but they can be customized to fit your needs.

This software has saved me a lot of time from woods to office. It has everything that I need.

PROS

It has everything you need in a forestry software and the fact that you can use it on a device like and iPad of iPhone that you can use outside of forestry makes it that much more useful. It is very simple to use and accomplish all of my goals and it is a very good program to use. Very nice user interface on a big screen.

CONS

The only downside is the gps capability. It is by no means bad, but I find I need to use another gps to accomplish everything I would need a gps to do. The gps functionality is limited to the inventory. I have had no issues getting gps data off of the software.
