Logger's Edge overview

What is Logger's Edge?

Logger’s Edge is an on-premise forestry solution designed to help small to midsize timber businesses and logging agencies track production and streamline payment processes. Key features include mill revenue reconciliation, equipment tracking, profit/loss analysis, and reporting.

The application comes with a load slip entry functionality, which enables contractors to view and edit tickets, as well as record associated payment details collected from mills. Logger’s Edge allows crew members to enter tract information and set up rates based on various factors, such as product type, destination, species, and more. Businesses can use Logger's Edge to generate pay statements for contractors and landowners, displaying rate details along with additions or deductions.

Logger’s Edge helps supervisors manage log trucks, track round trip cycle times, and calculate payments based on load count, weight, and distance. With its timesheet feature, managers can monitor the working hours of staff members and calculate overtime to aid with payroll processing of employees or contractors. The solution also offers an expense tracking feature, which allows professionals to record fuel bills, repair bills, and bonuses provided to vendors.

We have been using this software since 2005. We use it to track and purchase many different species of logs for our lumber mill. The team at Caribou Software has been beyond fantastic for all things relating to this software package from implementation to support in answering questions for us. They were able to customize the program to handle our scaling companies antique hand held equipment. I feel that you can't go wrong with Loggers Edge for function, price and support. I know I couldn't live without it now.

Pros
Ease of use, functionality, flexibility, fantastic customer service and implementation crew. This software has saved us so much time and work over the old system that we used. I highly recommend Loggers Edge to anyone looking to upgrade or start using a computerized system Fantastic reporting capabilities and integrates with our weigh scale.

Cons
I honestly can't think of any and I have had plenty of time to have found one.

Before we had this program I was bogged down with the work/process. Entering the load for each vendor. Different rates. Different jobs. Now we can quickly enter the loads, set up new jobs, change rates by date, mileage. If you have something you need it to do they will find a way. We have been very satisfied since our purchase of the program in 2013.

Pros
Our weekly routine of paying vendors off of the truck loads of timber is possible with this software. Enter the load once. It generates a statement for the cutter, the trucker, the land owner, etc. Trackable forever. Reconcile each load as we are paid. All is kept organized and easy to access. End of job reports customized by you give all the figures you need.

Cons
I really don't have any cons. In the 8 or so years that we have been using it we have never had an issue that couldn't quickly be helped or resolved. Never a delayed payday for our vendors.

We have had a great deal of communication with the crew at Loggers Edge. From designing of custom reports that meet our needs to staying up to date with the latest versions of this product.

Pros
The ease of use with this software has saved our business alot of time on a daily basis with data entry, tracking and reporting job production. We can run reports (with convidence) that caluclate our quarterly returns from the data that has been entered previously and that alone saves us a great deal of time. If you are questioning what the right software for your business is make sure you consider Loggers Edge because they are always there to help costomize anything you and your business needs.

Cons
We have had this software in place for over 10 years and only wish we had implemented it sooner.
