February 5, 2019 – Pöyry and Simosol have partnered to further develop Pöyry’s “Smart Forestry” solutions designed to generate value throughout the forestry supply chain.

Pöyry’s Smart Forestry approach is based on cooperation with the ecosystem of technology providers. The digital offering facilitates optimized forestry operations based on a range of software products as well as tailored digital solutions. These include remote sensing–based forest inventory integrated with optimization of wood sourcing and forestry operations, as well as highly automated forest valuation and appraisal.

The partnership with Simosol will deliver greater availability of the Smart Forestry solutions, says Pöyry.

The combined offering covers a range of services from forest valuation/appraisal, GIS, remote sensing, advanced analytics and information system development in forestry to feasibility studies in forestry development, wood supply chain optimization, forest carbon strategies and monitoring, as well as carbon balance analysis.

“The new solutions will provide an excellent basis for our clients to [reap] the benefits of digitalization, for example in a form of improved operational efficiency and new business models,” says Saara Söderberg, vice-president, industry management consulting at Pöyry. “I am very pleased to join forces with Simosol team taking our forestry offering onto a new level.”
