Harvestia has chosen Tieto to modernize its wood supply system and integrate it with ecosystem services

Harvestia has chosen Tieto to modernize its wood supply system and related service environment. The renewal will enable more advanced and efficient steering of wood supply operations and enhance the usability and user experience of applications. Tieto is using this solution to connect different actors in the wood and fibre supply field together to create an ecosystem.

Tieto will also integrate the system with Trimble’s LogForce service to enable operational- and vehicle-level planning, as well as steering of wood transportation operations.

“We are modernizing the wood supply system with the aim of improving the steering of wood and fibre deliveries to our customers and increasing the effectiveness of hauling operations with our transportation partners,” says Pekka Kauranen, CEO of Harvestia.

As part of the renewal process, Tieto will provide a concept for connecting Harvestia’s wood supply system with the forthcoming Finnish digital wood marketplace. As a result, Harvestia will be able to increase the effectiveness of its wood procurement operations by having real-time access to the wood market.

“We are very excited to support Harvestia with their business renewal. Our Wood and Fibre Solutions are based on ecosystem thinking, and in this project, we are connecting different actors in the wood and fibre supply field together,” says Jaakko Kuusisaari, Director of Wood and Fibre Solutions, Tieto.

Tieto aims to capture the significant opportunities of the data-driven world and turn them into lifelong value for people, business and society. We aim to be customers’ first choice for business renewal by combining our software and services capabilities with a strong drive for co-innovation and ecosystems.www.tieto.com
