““ GeoVerra releases enhanced, customized client experiences for Timber and Road Management partners - GeoVerra

Edmonton, Alta (Nov. 24, 2022) – GeoVerra has revamped and enhanced its Timber Management System (TMS) software and Road Management Services (RMS) – because creating more efficient and customized experiences for clients is part of the Company’s Partnership Promise.

Since 1995, GeoVerra has been providing timber, environmental, and land management services to Alberta energy and forest industries. This is thanks to the entrepreneurially driven Forestry and Environmental team made up of Registered Professional Foresters and Forest Technologists, Professional Agrologists and Professional Biologists who have decades of project management experience. When GeoVerra first launched in June 2020 at the start of the global pandemic, they set out on a mission to be a constant partner in an ever-changing world. Two and a half years later, this still rings true and is demonstrated in the Company’s commitment to updating and enhancing existing client software and systems.

The Forestry and Environmental team is excited to provide a more user-friendly and customized experience for industry road users, industry road licensees, timber companies and Alberta’s Forest Management Agreement holders (FMA) with two system updates. GeoVerra’s Vice-President of Forestry and Environmental, Adrienne Maskalyk says, “Our team is excited to offer unmatched support and customized client experiences that allow efficient third-party use, easy budgeting, and cost recovery.”

Timber Management System (TMS):

Available through GeoVerra’s client portal (GV View), TMS is a custom web-based software that receives, tracks, and manages third-party applications on behalf of forest tenure holders. It allows third-party industry users and their agents to submit applications for consent of land withdrawals from GeoVerra’s FMA clients. TMS allows GeoVerra’s Forestry and Environmental team to assess sites on behalf of the forest tenure holder for conditions such as good land management, overlapping assets, and infringement into high-value areas. This review results in a timber inventory and subsequent timber valuation assessment and invoicing, with prompt replies, and an interface where third-party applicants can view the status of their applications.

So, what’s new? After 20 years of success, the old system needed an overhaul and GeoVerra is excited to lead the industry with the latest and greatest software for clients. The revamped TMS software provides:

  • User-friendly and intuitive experience
  • Easily extractable information
  • Ability to check application status
  • Efficiency and streamlined system
  • Minimized back-and-forth communications
  • Expert support
