Rold Skov Sawmill cuts up soft wood for the building sector. The product range includes wood for construction, sheathing, packaging, heat-treated wood, bark and wood chips. In recent years Rold Skov Sawmill has grown significantly and extended its wood processing capacity. Although this has led to an increase in revenue, the previous system for tracking inventory and controlling stock could no longer cope, so the IT team began to look for a new solution which could automate the process. The Rold Skov sawmills team chose to use bar coding and scanners in conjunction with a wireless network to record details of the timber stock.
