Pros
It is very simple to use and accomplish all of my goals and it is a very good program to use. Very nice user interface on a big screen.
Great features, easy to use, great quality, and customer support is excellent.
I like its easy to use interface and display layout. The reports it is able to produce are also really useful and easy.
Cons
It is currently difficult to collate non-tree data from sample points. Exporting photos is difficult and they aren't tagged by plot.
Any issues have been easilly rectified with customer service. Makes it hard when out in the field and experience an issue.
It is by no means bad, but I find I need to use another gps to accomplish everything I would need a gps to do. The gps functionality is limited to the inventory.

very intuitive software. I really like the fact that it is used on an iphone app!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Saves time with data processing

Pros

Great product for a reasonable price. The fact that it is an app on the iphone means I don't have to purchase an additional hand held data collector.

Cons

I wish I could save templates for common reports that I write. I have to paste data into excel spreadsheets every time I prepare reports

I’ve had a great experience with Tig and the rest of the staff at Forest Metrix. They’re very responsive when any issues have come up. I’d highly recommend both them and the FM system to anybody!

Pros

The FM system and customer support is excellent.

Cons

Nothing! I’ve had a great experience with them.

Cons

Keeping up with FileMaker and program updates that change the page layout and some of the formatting is a minor inconvenience.

It has helped save time in the office. I can calculate everything right in the field with the tap of a finger. Even estimated values of the timber.

Pros

So many features and functions, and after playing with it, to get to know the software, very easy to use. And you can use it on your ipad, which is great with mapping apps and built in gps.

Cons

It takes a few trial runs to get to know the software, which it does with any new piece of equipment. Some of the excel reports might scare you at first, but they can be customized to fit your needs.

This software has saved me a lot of time from woods to office. It has everything that I need.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

It has everything you need in a forestry software and the fact that you can use it on a device like and iPad of iPhone that you can use outside of forestry makes it that much more useful. It is very simple to use and accomplish all of my goals and it is a very good program to use. Very nice user interface on a big screen.

Cons

The only downside is the gps capability. It is by no means bad, but I find I need to use another gps to accomplish everything I would need a gps to do. The gps functionality is limited to the inventory. I have had no issues getting gps data off of the software.
