Digitizing the Forestry Industry
Forests cover 57% of Sweden’s landscape at just shy of 57 million acres. The county’s vast forestland has led to one of the largest and most efficient forestry industries in the world — equating to about one-fifth of Sweden’s entire GDP. But modern forestry is extraordinarily complex and relies on many different systems, many of which are built on outdated technologies or are entirely analog.
Working with the largest forestry companies in Sweden and the surrounding Scandinavian countries, ForestX’s mission is to digitize the entire industry. To date, the company has developed digital products to make each stage of the industry more efficient, from logging and production to end products and logistics.
A Confidence-Inspiring Technology Partner
The ForestX internal team is made up of industry veterans who understand the nuanced challenges of forestry and technology experts with the vision to solve those challenges. In addition, the company works with several contractors and technology partners to build solutions for its clients and its own software products.
ForestX partnered with MentorMate at the beginning of its existence to build a solution for its first client, Setra Group. Since then, we’ve worked with ForestX to deliver innovative, specialized solutions to many other clients. This continued partnership allows the company to scale confidently as needed and work on complex projects with larger clients.
Beyond Staff Augmentation
As a technology partner, we’ve worked on several projects for various ForestX clients. Our work together has ranged from back-end, mobile, and API development on a forestry-specific ERP system to maintaining legacy CRM and order management systems. These two projects — and many other engagements — were all for major Scandinavian and global forestry companies looking to streamline and modernize their processes. Together with ForestX, we delivered on just that.
